Lithuania cultural holiday
Description of Lithuania cultural holiday
This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetDuring this tour we visit Curonian Spit – UNESCO World Heritage protected nature and man’s creation. This visit is valuable for both: the travelers can admire beautiful sand dunes, wild beaches and pine forests. They can also get to know more about Curonian Spit’s cultural heritage. Since this place needs to be protected to outlast, the entrance fees really help to support it.
During this tour we spend a lot of time in nature, but we never forget to respect it – take all our rubbish with us (and pick up the ones we see), don’t get out of the special trails (especially when we are in the swamp or Parnidis dune), to watch our steps.
We drink our tap water in the city, and encourage our travellers not to use disposable plastic where possible. We encourage our travellers to drink from this too, and bring reusable bottles with them if possible. When visiting small villages, we always encourage our travelers to drink well water, taste local vegetables and fruits.
PeopleThe Baltic states are our homeland and we want to show you the places that the locals know. Visiting places undiscovered by mass tourism also gives us a chance to introduce our travellers to local crafters and their practices. These experiences benefit both the locals and our travellers who experience real local culture. For example on this trip they will meet local fisherman, and taste fresh local meals like freshly smoked fish, caught and prepared by them or try Lithuanian bread, baked by a local baker according to old traditional recipe. We are glad that our suppliers are always prepared to show the best they have, to tell the best they know.
We recommend our travelers visit local souvenir, clothes shops. Since Lithuania is famous for its linen and amber production – this is always interesting for our guests. This is also allows local crafters to sell their handmade productions which is one good way to support local economy.
Visiting locals is not just about the interaction, it’s win-win situation: the tourist gets a high quality, not mass produced product, and the crafter gets additional income. And that is really important for local crafters.
