With a border that runs less than 2,000 km, Lithuania is a very compact country. You can go from the north to the south of the country in 5 hours (276 km) and from east to west in about 6 hours (373 km).
This route around Lithuania is designed for those who like challenges and who want to see as much of the country and its different regions as possible – the Dzūkija ethnographic region with its pine forests, rivers and sandy soil, the region by the Curonian Lagoon (Pamarys), with its kingdom of birds and rivers, Žemaitija ethnographic area with its woodland, authentic culture and traditions, and Aukštaitija ethnographic region, the lake district of Lithuania.
This route connects all of the most important locations in the country – the three capitals of Lithuania, the most popular resort towns, the largest island in Lithuania, and the so-called “road of paradise” that snakes alongside the largest river of Lithuania.
