Lithuania Adventure Tours
As adventurous travelers become eager to explore every corner of Europe, Journeys International has added farther reaches of Northern Europe to our offerings. Lithuania is the largest of the three Baltic states and a great destination to enjoy natural scenery, coastal beaches, UNESCO World Heritage sites, traditional architecture, and unique Baltic culture. There are some 800 churches scattered across the country and around 40 operating monasteries. On a Journeys adventure through Lithuania, you’ll explore charming old towns such as Vilnius and its Jewish center, one of the largest in Europe; visit castles such as Trakai and Panemunes; meet ethnic groups such as the Karaites of Semitic origin; learn how to make traditional kibin meat pastries; and discover the Curonian Lagoon Spit, home to the highest drifting sand dunes in Europe where many birds flock to during the spring and fall migrations. You will also learn about the Soviet history of the nation, and place your journey in the historic context of all this place has seen.
