Our hikers' friendly hut is located on the E11 Baltic Forest trail in the small ethnographic village Žiogeliai. We welcome hikers, bikers and other travellers. In the lovely forest of Dzūkija National Park, just a few hundred metres from the river Nemunas it is a place to meet and slowly explore local nature and culture. Perfect stay on the hiking or biking way from Merkinė to Druskininkai or even further - E11 European long distance trail can lead you both to Poland and Latvia and more.


Hütte Žiogeliai offers a cosy cabin with four sleeping places. If necessary, we can deliver another folding bed. It is also possible to stay with a tent. In the hut you will find a kitchenette with a fridge and all the necessary utensils and basics such as salt and coffee, a dining table and a small library. Next to it - a comfortable gazebo, a hot shower and an outdoor toilet.


The name Hütte Žiogeliai was inspired by the Alpine mountain huts where travellers can stay while hiking through the mountains. We are the haven where you can rest before moving on. What could be more wonderful than to reach a romantic village in the middle of the forest after a long and fulfilling hike, find shelter there and after a good rest - to continue hiking. The surrounding cliffs of the Nemunas really resemble mountain canyons in places, and we know that the well-marked forest path will not allow you to get lost. The forest near Žiogeliai is included in the Sengirė Foundation, bunnies come to the yard here in the mornings, you can find an eagle's nest in the forest, meet a roe deer, not to mention mushrooms, berries and fish in Nemunas.

We will always help you when planning the route or if you have any problems and questions. We will tell you about local actions and attractions. For example, lithuanian cult movie "Nut Bread" was filmed in Žiogeliai, in a nearby farmstead. In addition, our homestead is home to a painting studio, enamel workshops, culinary education and artist residencies, and a sauna and swimming pool in the event and residence building.
