Tours in Lithuania

Journey to the centre of Europe and discover the secrets of Lithuania, the southernmost country in the Baltic states. A former Soviet bloc nation lying on the border of Poland, Latvia and Belarus, the country has a rich history. This is a place of wonder, with castles, lakes and forests; vast plains parted by hills; and sand dunes along the Baltic shore. Meanwhile, the towns are full of eccentric shops and bohemian galleries.

On Lithuania holidays, adventurers can hike or cycle the countryside around the Curonian Lagoon, or take a boat trip in Trakai Historical National Park. Before you leave, don’t forget to try the national dish cepelinai (zeppelins) – meat and potato dumplings – and savour fresh-off-the-line seafood, all washed down with a glass of local midus, a type of honey mead.
