Experiences in Lithuania for your family album

Travelling shouldn’t be about collecting souvenirs that just end up gathering dust in a drawer; it should be about collecting experiences that enrich your life. Unexpected discoveries, new emotions, memorable moments together – these are the kinds of precious souvenirs you and your family can take home from Lithuania. Nestled by the Baltic Sea, with some of the cleanest air and best drinking water in Europe, Lithuania is a country that is truly family friendly. From the pristine beaches and coastal beauty of the Curonian Spit, to the the cosy streets of Vilnius Old Town, whatever your family enjoys, Lithuania has lots to offer.
Adventures above the clouds and in the treetops – for those who enjoy active vacations!

Get a bird’s eye view! Vilnius is one of the few European capitals that allow air-balloon flights. And you can also enjoy an unforgettable flight over Lithuania’s second biggest city, Kaunas. Then there’s balloon rides over the forested spa resort of Birštonas. And to top it off, you can also take a balloon ride over the spectacular medieval Trakai Castle that’s set on an island in the middle of a crystal clear lake.

Daredevils can choose from a number of adventure parks offering a range of adrenaline pumping activities like treetop climbing, tobogganing, tubing, or zip-lining across a river:

Family vacation from a fairy-tale

Lithuania is a country steeped in folklore and mythology, so there’s every chance you might meet the occasional devil or witch on your travels. Lithuanians were the last pagans in Europe, and pre-Christian Baltic traditions are still very much alive in their ceremonies, traditional sutartinės (Lithuanian multipart songs), and respect for nature and the land. And you can experience these traditions first hand in the Days of Live Archaeology festival which takes place on the grassy former hill forts of Kernavė, or in the celebrations of Midsummer’s Day or the autumn equinox. So why not jump into this world of ancient legends and mythological creatures, and give your family a real fairy tale vacation. And the best place to do this is Žemaitija near the coast, where you’ll find most of the greatest attractions.
