Hydra Epic trail – a XV year off-road product of many long searches and miserable, but sometimes very rewarding, adventures. For seven last years it was developed with a help of volunteers and participants.

The trail has both technical cross country single tracks and long fast gravel parts, which go through most beautiful Lithuanian, Latvian and Estonian cities, small countryside towns and forests. Along the trail there is an opportunity to visit a handful of big cities in Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia: Kaunas, Vilnius, Zarasai, Riga, Sigulda, Cesis, Valmiera, Valga, Ape, Võru, Otepää and etc. – for sure you will be surprised how close single tracks and city centres can be and at the same time how beautiful and untouched nature is in Baltic states! You will also have to check yourself in four time limited checkpoints where you will meet our volunteers.

Have some of best times exploring exquisite Baltic nature and challenge yourself in endurance at the same time!

Check different thoughts from last year’s participants:
* “For at least one time everyone needs to participate without questions, riding often – then certainly”
* “Huge amount of challenges, difficult to explain”
* “Hydra Epic – the best way to feel miserable”
* “I think Hydra’s secret is to move. It’s like life: if you lie – you’re dead, if you move, means you’re alive”
