Cycle route Nr. 168 "Three Annas and Ērmanis"
The route leads through the peculiar Bānītis Land, the central artery of which is the only regularly running narrow gauge train in the Baltics – the Bānītis, providing an opportunity to combine a cycling adventure with a trip on a train.
You can choose to start or finish the route at the Umernieki Station, matching it with the Gulbene-Alūksne train schedule. The route surrounded by forests and meadows winds through three Anna villages – Anna, Vecanna and Jaunanna, as well as along the Ērmaņi Manor. The trip is perfectly complemented by a walk on the nature trail “Beavers Kingdom”.
