Unlike in many other countries, in Lithuania you can freely visit all forests, including private ones. Exceptions apply to nature reserves, specialpurpose forests, border regions, and military sites. Staying overnight in a tent or camper van, however, is allowed only in designated campsites, but not at rest stops or other recreational areas. Rules applicable to campsites prohibit littering, polluting the environment with detergents and other synthetic chemicals, and making fires outside fire pits or burning packaging and other waste. For kindling, use your own firewood or collect dry twigs and branches around the campsite. Before leaving, make sure to put out the fire using water or soil. In addition, keep the following recommendations in mind: avoid picking wild plants, for some of them are protected species; don’t collect eggs, kill animals or destroy their habitats; take care not to damage moss, lichen or berry shrubs when parking; don’t cause too much noise or other disturbances; walk your dog on a leash, and muzzle when unleashing. Before heading out, it’s advisable to get vaccinated against tickborne disease, and to bring antimosquito spray or similar repellant. Failure to comply with the rules may result in a fine of up to several hundred euros.
