By water

Travelling by water is a fantastic way to see some of the most isolated parts of Lithuania as well as a different angle to the national and regional parks.

There are about 20 rivers suitable for water routes in Lithuania, each of which differs a great deal in mood and character, relief and surroundings. The rivers Minija, Šventoji, Dubysa, Žeimena, Merkys and Ūla are famed locally for their spectacular turns that offer fast-changing views. They also give plenty of opportunities to stop and visit nearby villages, fort-hills, unique natural monuments and other sites along the way.

Lithuania is a country blessed with clean, natural lakes, all 3,000 of them, especially in the northeastern and southern parts of the country. The biggest lakes are in the Aukštaitija National Park and the Labanoras, Gražutė, Sartai and Veisiejai regional parks. Many lakes here are connected by overflows and straits, so you can travel for hours and see a wide area in your boat or canoe.

Hundreds of privately run farmsteads, country manors and guest houses offer accommodation, steaming saunas and other entertainment in the unsullied and peaceful Lithuanian countryside, many of them providing fishing, hunting, berry picking and walking.
