Strolling along incredible long stretch of powder-soft sand, curling into the Baltic Sea.
Disappearing into mystical forests, keeping an eye out for the elk and deer which roam about.
Exploring secluded bays by day and thronging bars by night. There are plenty of live gigs, and in summer the sun doesn’t set until 11pm.
Turning up the tempo on a 4WD dune safari and cooling off with a swim in the spit's beautiful Blue Lagoon.
Visiting Vilnius. Crowned Capital of Culture 2009, it’s a charming city with beautiful churches, cathedrals and castles.
Fairytale forests fringe the rolling powder-soft beaches of the Curonian Spit, making for an otherworldly experience. From above, this 98km long sand spit resembles the curve of a spider's web elegantly joining the Lithuanian Coast to Russia. It’s no wonder it’s a World Heritage Site – with such a vast expanse of pristine sand you could think you were in the Sahara Desert if it weren’t for the beautiful blue lagoon and fragrant pine forests, home to wandering elk and deer. Sound incredible? Trust us, it is.
Palanga town teems with vibrant bars and bustling restaurants, the perfect spots to listen to live music while sipping a local beer as you watch the slow sun set over the Baltic sea. You’ll hole up at the effortlessly chic Hotel Palanga – an incredible glass fronted property set between the forest and the beach. It’s a stone’s throw from town making it the perfect launch pad for exploring secluded bays by day and the thronging bars by night… and with the long daylight hours, as if by magic, your holiday will seem much longer.
Laze on the sand, take a dip, and explore the secluded bays, forests and massive shifting dunes, under which are reputedly buried 14 villages. Don't worry, they won't move under your feet, but we still recommend going now before everyone else hears about it. If you’re after some high octane romance we can arrange for you to be driven deep into the sweeping dunes and lagoons of the spit where you can summit one of her mighty dunes. And to top it off? There will be a beautiful picnic hamper, rug and chilled champagne to be waiting for you.
Make four days feel like a fortnight as you kick back on the beach dunes, forests and lagoons of the Curonian Spit… the perfect escape from the daily grind.
