For adventurers looking to experience the Baltics by active days and well rested nights, we have a range of different suggestions. Long distance hikes through the Curonian Spit and cycling tours through the wilds of Lithuania are waiting, but what about something completely out of the ordinary?
You could try dog sledding through Gauja National Park or kayaking in Trakai. These experiences will stay with you forever, especially as you glide through the water past one of the most impressive castles in the whole of the Baltics.
If dog sledding and kayaking won’t raise your pulse enough, how about survival practice in the wilderness? Whatever your threshold for adventure, we’ll create a bespoke Baltic experience for you and your group.
Hiking Along Curonian Spit
This place is simply beyond description. Majestic dunes and light filled, pine tree forests lead down to the beautiful lagoon. Watch as the water glows in the sunset, before flowing out into the mighty Baltic Sea. To hike here is to experience the Baltic adventure for real, with the beauty of the Baltic coast at your feet.
Kayaking in Trakai
Whether you have never tried kayaking before or if you’re an experienced paddler, kayaking in Trakai is something that you simply must try. Paddle across the lake and have your breath taken away by one of the most beautiful landmarks in Lithuania, the castle. This active and exhilarating experience is something you will remember for a life time. An explorer’s dream.
Bog shoe walking in Lahemaa National Park
