LITHUANIA DESTINATION GUIDE

As the world leader in travel experiences since 1947, we connect you to the real Lithuania in a way like no other. Set on the Baltic sea in northern Europe, Lithuania is a whimsical land of golden midsummers, spirited cities and ravishing nature. The country is cloaked in unspoiled national parks, with forests and lakes melting into sugary beaches. Even the capital of Vilnius is an ode to greenery, with nearly half the city covered in pretty parks and gardens. The gorgeous landscapes are filled with a fiercely preserved history, and when you visit Lithuania with Trafalgar, we’ll reveal the legends and lore of the country. Tour the Gothic spires and Baroque buildings of Vilnius’ UNESCO-listed Old Town, see the ancient ruins of Gediminas' Tower, the poetic symbol of Vilnius, and visit the chilling museums documenting Lithuania’s dark WWII history. We’ll also delve deeper into the country’s vivid culture, with a trip to Trakai, where castles float on islands, and an evening of folklore music and dance. Travel with us and unlock the infinite possibilities thanks to our exclusive Trafalgar Highlights.
