A Day Trip to Trakai

Did you know that Lithuania was the biggest country in Europe in the 14th century? Join us for a day trip to Trakai, one of the prettiest towns in Lithuania (and former capital) to find out all you need to know about Lithuanian history and culture. We’ll explore the town’s impressive castle by foot and by boat, admire pagan art at the Hill of Angels and enjoy a traditional lunch at a family-owned café.

This tour is priced for a minimum group size of three travellers. A solo traveller may still book this private experience but will be charged the base rate for three travellers.

Local Impact: How you will help the local community by joining this tour:

  • This tour helps preserve the local cultural heritage of the Karaite community, not just because you explore sites of cultural significance, but because you visit an off-the-beaten-track restaurant run by a real Karaite woman and active local community member. She built this restaurant over the years on the land of her grandmother, partially returned by the state after the declaration of Lithuania’s independence in 1991.
  • By trying traditional dishes and drinks you are getting insight into local cuisine and culture and helping a small, sustainable family business to preserve authentic traditions.

Language: English

Inclusions: Local English-speaking guide, transportation, boat tickets, traditional Karaite food tasting, glass of beer and good mood.

Exclusions: Additional food and drinks, ticket to the castle museum, souvenirs and personal shopping, tips/gratuities for your guide.
