Cycle Tour Highlights
• Explore the Baltic coast and the National Parks of Lithuania

The tour begins in Vilnius where you get your tour maps with detailed program and route description. Next day your rental bikes will be ready for your first ride in Trakai. This trip is a half-guided tour ie during the whole trip, except the Curonian Spit and Jurmala, the driver with a minibus and bike trailer is with you and you can take part in city tours (Vilnius, Riga, Tallinn) lead by professional guides. The driver will transport your luggage every day to the next hotel. If you have a breakdown, then our driver will take care of everything for you. If you have any problems – contact the driver or our office.

Tour Route Profile
Daily biking routes mainly on low traffic roads and cycle paths range from 31 to 57 km (19-36 miles) each day with a possibility to cycle more kilometres on some days like Day 6 (exploring Jurmala Resort) and Day 9 (detours in Saaremaa Island). The terrain is varied and rolling with a few gradual hills on some riding days (a few steep ups and downs on the Curonian Spit and in the Gauja River valley) and dead flat most of the tour. The tour covers all three Baltic States and therefore it includes a few long minibus transfers between the most interesting cycling destinations and the capital cities. Our walking sightseeing tours in the capital old towns are along cobbled streets
