Description of Lithuania family short break

If you’re looking to get away from it all for a few days, and spend some quality time with the kids, this family holiday in Lithuania is sure to appeal. A four-day trip departing from the capital, Vilnius, sees you immersed in gorgeous, tranquil countryside, with a wide variety of family-friendly activities to enjoy.

You might indulge in some row-boating on the lake, bringing a tasty picnic along too. Or take to the trees, at an outdoor adventure park that will provide plenty of thrills for all ages. You can take an enthralling walk through a swamp, or relax with buckets and spades on a private beach. And then if you’re still not fully unwound, there is the option of sweating out your stress with a traditional sauna and hot tub. Create some magical family memories, escape the bustle of city life, and experience life in rural Lithuania all at the same time.

After a couple of days in the forest, you’ll take a day-trip to the historic lake resort of Trakai. Here you can take a look around the 16th century Uzutrakis Manor, take a tour of the fairytale-like Trakai Castle that stands on an island in the lake, and snack on some yummy kibinas. These pastries stuffed with mutton and onion resemble empanadas, and are traditionally made by the Karaite ethnic minority.

Heading back to Vilnius after four days of fun in the fresh air, you would be forgiven if you were already on your phone, checking the best dates to come back again next year.

Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Lithuania family short break

Environment

We invite you to spend your time in real Lithuanian nature – Anupriškes park, where you can enjoy pine forest, beautiful Gilušis lake and a big swamp with special paths to walk on. The apartments you are going to stay in respect the environment by using renewable energy from renewable recourses, you will find a friendly reminder in every room to save water and avoid (if this possible, of course), avoid the unnecessary washing of towels. The chief of the kitchen will invite you to taste dishes with local forest goods: Lithuanian mushrooms and berries. Our partners have a new mini project for this season – to create a small garden for their own cucumbers, tomatoes, radishes etc. Please notice, the special architecture of buildings and the idea to get in the nature and keep the visual forest’s atmosphere.

Our main goal is to spend as more time outside as it is possible, under one condition – we take all our rubbish with us (and pick up the ones we see, that are 'not ours'). We advise guests not to wander away from the special trails (especially when we are in the swamp), we watch our steps.

Other important thing would be avoiding unnecessary transport. If there is a chance to reach a destination by walk, we always recommend it to our travellers.

Also, we do believe it is equally important to care for the environment as well as your own body. One of the best ways to do that is to drink a lot of water. Since this tour is about you in the nature, we can proudly say, that you can always drink our tap water (it is really good in Lithuania) and use reusable bottles instead of buying new plastic ones every time you feel thirsty.

Community

We are always working with locals, that’s why you’ll find your guide to be local. If you are going to the swamp, don’t forget to ask your guide to show you the carpet of cranberries and don’t forget to taste them! If you would like to try a sauna – be sure your saunaman will tell you the best stories not just about traditional Lithuanian sauna, but also some stories about local life.

Visit in Trakai is unique not just because of breathtaking nature and architectural views, but also because of opportunity to taste an authentic food of Karaims (ethnic group that lives in Lithuania since Grand Duke Vytautas times) and, of course, to get to know better their culture, traditions, customs. That's why we always include a meal during a visit to Trakai. This is one way to support small business runed by locals.

We have two important aims – first, we seek to show the best of our country and share the most beautiful experiences with our travelers. In the other hand, we admit the significance of local people. So we try to find the best way of collaboration between these two sides. We have a goal to treat our suppliers fairly and we really proud that our relations aren’t just about business; it’s more like professional friendship.
