Real is Beautiful
In the spotlight
Meeting animals can be both exciting and therapeutic for the whole family. Lithuania Travel, the National tourism development agency, shares six ideas from their interactive animal map for an unforgettable wildlife trip in Lithuania—from a peaceful oasis in a deer spa to a therapeutic encounter with alpacas.
Lithuania is widely regarded as a destination fit to explore by car due to low rental prices, sustainability, small distances between attractions, and the ability to camp out in the wilderness. Recently named the third best country for road trips, travelers can easily explore the country's bustling metropolises and undisturbed nature in the comfort of their vehicle.
This summer Lithuania prompts travelers from Latvia to take a vacation in the country and experience an innately similar character and surprisingly different manners of the two neighboring countries.
For most Lithuanians, spending time out by the water is an essential summertime experience. Boasting an impressive number of bodies of water, the country offers a plethora of activities for water lovers — from gourmet food trips to challenging kitesurfing tracks.
Hiking, rambling, trekking and other ways of nature exploration have grown popular among European travellers, who are used to well-maintained trails, breathtaking scenery and comfort along the way. With its 200+ nature trails, Lithuania always had something to offer to visitors wanting to escape the city for a day or two. But starting this season, the Baltic country has a newly marked 747-kilometre forest trail added to one of the longest hiking trails in Europe – the E11. True to its name, the Miško Takas (Forest Trail) passes through some of the greenest spots in the country, including several national parks.
