Description of Elektrenai Meadows (Lithuania)
The Elektrenai Meadows (Elektrenai Pievos for the locals), is a great spot close to Vilnius when the wind comes from the West and North West. Occasionally you can ride also the south wind, but it isn't the ideal direction (for this direction, you can go up to the northeast point of the lake directly in Elektrenai town). It is an inland lake, as the close Vievis Lake, so expect the wind to be always gusty to some degree, but the spot is nice and it is very handy if you are in Vilnius of Kaunas. The water is deep and the entrance from the grass beach is tricky, therefore is not suitable for beginners.
Few people on the spot
Dark - Clear
The wet suit at any time, in early spring and late autumn, a dry suit is advisable. Shoes are recommendable since the entrance has some stones
Entering the water there are trees, the access is narrow and often the wind it is gusty, so pay maximum attention entering and exiting the water. Once in the middle of the lake, you have plenty of space to ride
This is a daily visit spot, normally one would stay in the major cities of Vilnius and Kaunas
How to get There
From the main Highway Vilnius Kaunas, exit respectively at Vievis or Elektrenai. Some urban and country roads lead to the spot.
The access to the meadows is public and there is plenty of space to park in the grass spot
