The Lonely Planet has recently likened a trip to the Baltic States to a fairy tale, thanks to the abundance of enchanting castles, dunes, forests and lakes. And the pristine nature in these beautiful northern lands tells it own fairy tale every year – the tale of four very distinct seasons. In winter, you can enjoy still, snow-covered landscapes and warming retreats into cavernous old town bars. In spring, the vegetation awakes and the birds return, the forests and meadows bursting with vibrant colour. Summers in the Baltics are perfect for enjoying a wide range of outdoors pursuits on days when the sun never seems to set. And in autumn you can enjoy nature’s bounty tasting mushrooms and berries on golden woodland walks.
