The biggest Regional Park in Lithuania is located between Rivers Šventoji and Žeimena. Forests take four fifths of all the territory, and most of them are pine trees. These are Baranavos, Rašios, Čiulų, Poviliškio, Pliešiškių, Pagaluonės, Panatryčio, Gatakiemio, Juodenėnų, Siesarčio, Lakajų forests. All together they form continuous forest massif, which is called Labanoro forest. It is one of the biggest and most beautiful forest of Lithuania, and also most valuable treasure of the Regional Park.

The relief of the Park is almost flat, but the North-western part of the Park terrain is very undulating. This is a consequence of the glacial period. In the deeper layers underground
it is possible to find moraine loam, which is covered by sand, and this is the reason why up to 300 clear-watered lakes and ponds can be found rippling around even in very small recesses.

Labanoro regparkas13% of territory is covered by the lakes. This part of Lithuania has the most lakes. The majority of lakes have interesting islands, bays and peninsulas. The most valuable ones are given the status of natural heritage (Alnio, Aiseto and Mažųjų Siaurių peninsulas). Aiseto, Galuono and Dumblio lakes combine one of the longest hydrographical complexes. Siesartis is third of the most island-full lakes in Lithuania.

There are two rivers and some rivulets flowing into Žeimena and Šventoji River basins. One of the most beautiful rivers of East Aukštaitija is the most watery tributary of Žeimena – Lakaja. The rivers are also clean, fast flowing and cold-watered. Here live and breed valuable salmonids – trouts and graylings. Also brown trouts are coming from salty water of Baltic sea to breed here.

In soaking territories Beržaloto-Aisputiškio, Kanio, Snieginio and other impressive swamps and marshes are laying.

The forests of Regional Park are a breeding spot for majority of rare forest bird species like black stork, lesser spotted eagle, honey buzzard, black kite ospreys, capercaillie, black grouse, boreal owl, the Pygmy owl, three-toed woodpecker, gray woodpecker. Also black-throated diver, crane, spotted crake, wood sandpiper, hoopoe, wind hover, roller and others.

The place is rich of various natural habitations of European interest: wetlands, swampy hardwood and western taiga forests, mires and quaking bogs, active bogs Alkaline fens, lakes with charophyte communities, low mineralized lakes, natural eutrophic lakes with floats and sharp communities.
