Lithuania, located on the south eastern shores of the Baltic Sea, is the largest of the Baltic States. A mild summer climate, fascinating history and beautiful countryside make it an excellent cycling destination, especially for those interested in culture, history and exploring nature on relatively easy bike trails. Lithuania’s landscape has been smoothed by glaciers leaving a predominantly flat terrain with coastal lowlands and inland highlands dotted with feudal castles, traditional farmhouses and forests.
The unspoilt coastline is the smallest of the Baltics measuring about 100 kilometres long, which can be explored by bike along coastal cycle paths. The Curonian Spit National Park protects inland wetlands and offers the cyclist bike paths and forest trails to the artistic town of Nida. Ride your bike through the Giruliai Forest to the coastal resort town of Palanga.
