    Cycling in the city
    Ding-ding. No, it’s not another annoying notification. It’s your finger ringing a bicycle bell! Renting a two-wheeler is a must when visiting one of Lithuania’s bigger cities, as it makes the already short distances even shorter! See more

    Go with the flow
    Take a canoe ride down an urban water artery — Neris in Vilnius, Nemunas in Kaunas or Danė in Klaipėda. And while you’re paddling downstream, dip your fingers (and toes!) in the river. It’ll wake you up better than a triple espresso. See more

    Go mushroom hunting
    Nothing beats the feeling of triumph you get when you pinch your fingers round the stem of the King of Mushrooms himself – boletus (baravykas in Lithuania)! For Lithuanians, mushroom gathering is more a religion than a seasonal past-time. And once you try it yourself, you’ll understand why!

    Fishing for amber
    Amber fishing sounds like something you’d find in a history textbook. But on Lithuania’s coast it’s very much a reality. The smell of the sea, the full fresh breeze, and the anticipation of a glint of glimmering yellow in the sand. You can’t afford to miss it! See more

    Berry nice
    Have you ever been caught blue handed? In Lithuania, it’s more common than you think! Spend the morning picking blueberries in a serene pine forest and see how your fingers turn Smurf-like.

    Make your own gifts
    Wouldn’t it be cool to bring back a souvenir you’ve made yourself? Dig your fingers in the millenia-old tradition of black ceramic and let your creative spirit guide you. A bowl? A mug? A sculpture of a tiny devil worthy of being exhibited at the Devils’ Museum in Kaunas? You decide! See more

    Village life

    Heat it up!
    Lithuanian sauna is a meditative experience where time and stress disappears. The heat helps rid the body and mind of tension, and the calming aroma of herbal tea (a must-have element) will help you to drift away. And you can enhance the experience with a traditional bath broom massage to truly cleanse yourself. See more
