After breakfast, guided tour of the city of Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania for over 600 years. In the afternoon, bus transfer to Trakai, the ancient capital of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, where the famous 14th century castle is located on a small island on Lake Galve. From here, the first stage of the bike route begins, going through the picturesque countryside characterized by gentle hills. A bus transfer to Kaunas follows. Overnight in a hotel in Kaunas.

Along the path, you will encounter Zapyškis, a small town located on the river, and its magnificent Gothic church dating back to the 14th century. A minibus transfer will then take you to Klaipeda, a modern town on the Baltic Sea.

Day 4: Klaipeda – Curonian Peninsula National Park – Klaipeda (57 km) | by minibus or boat (50 km)
The biking stage will take you through the Curonian Peninsula National Park, an ideal place to discover by bike, thanks to the bike path that runs through the entire peninsula and offers stunning views of the sea on one side and the lagoon on the other. The route has interesting stops, including the Dead Dunes, a narrow strip of land with the highest moving dunes in Europe. Enjoy the beautiful views of the Neringa Peninsula, separating the Baltic Sea from the Curonian Lagoon. You'll then cycle to the town of Nida, an old fishing village, and today, one of the main tourist spots of the Curonian Peninsula. At the end of the day a minibus or boat transfer will bring you back to Klaipėda, optional dinner at the hotel.

Day 5: Klaipeda – Palanga – Riga (32 km) | by minibus (290 km)
The bike stage starts early in the morning through the Sea Regional Park, once a Soviet military training area. Palanga is the major seaside resort of Lithuania, hence its nickname the Summer Capital. The city, located on the ancient Amber Way, was in the past a center for amber processing and trade. We suggest visiting the botanical garden and the Amber Museum. In the afternoon, a bus transfer to Riga (290 km), capital of Latvia, with a stop at the moving Hill of Crosses, a place of unforgettable allure, with its four hundred thousand crosses brought here by pilgrims. Overnight in a hotel in Riga.

Overnight in a hotel in Mandjala.
