If you love cycling then you’ll love Lithuania! And we have a challenge for you – a cross county cycle tour that spans the entire country – a mere 300 km journey from the capital city to the scenic Baltic Coast. It’s the perfect way to experience what the country has to offer. On your journey, you’ll take in everything from the historical old-towns of the country’s major cities to the UNESCO-protected Curonian Spit – the “Sahara” of the Baltics. Then there’s the region of Lithuania Minor, with its reflections of its Eastern Prussian past, and resort towns with 200-year-old traditions. While from the River Nemunas Delta, where there are more birds than people, you can travel to mysterious Samogitia which is steeped in Baltic mythology and the legacy of the Cold War. One of the most beautiful cycling routes in the country is the Coastal Cycling Route, part of the EuroVelo 10 and EuroVelo 13 network. And, as Lithuania is a flat country, you’ll find vistas opening out in front of you around every corner, without too much of a challenge for your legs. Choose your route, be open to adventure and discover the most Lithuania’s real treasure – its natural beauty.

In the south-eastern part of Lithuania, between the forests and the wetlands, between the sandy hills and the lakes hidden in the woods, live the people of Dzūkija, who can boast of their old traditions, their remarkably preserved neighbourly customs, their love of the environment and all living things, and their mushrooms and berries. The authentic villages grouped together in the woods are an amazing opportunity to go back a century, feel the power of the forest, and immerse yourself in the tranquil, slow life of nature.
