These excursions are for our guests (can be ordered as additional). The surroundings of eco-resort can offer cognitive, active, health-improving, ecological, archaeological and rural recreation. Here we have historical lighthouses, road crosses, the sates dated II thousand years B.C. and “places of force”. The sea, lakes, rivers, pines… And what is the most important here, the silence, tranquility, harmony.
“… It is amazing, but in the north, especially on the islands with undisturbed nature, far away from the vanity of the world and self-deception of the “powerful” technocratic civilization, the invisible gates of time are opened. An incomprehensible spellbinding energy, bringing an exciting breath of visionary revelations of the past, starts to flow through you, pulsating like gentle waves. And you are embraced by the complex feeling of real presence in every époque of the past, here and there, and there, and there… many centuries ago. You feel your allowance to cognize the internal mysteries of the universe. This feeling spellbinds, and is perceived as a miraculous benefit, as a gift from above; it is increased in places where the mysterious stone constructions are situated”
