Embrace slow-travel and embark on an overland adventure...
More people are choosing not to fly for their holidays and vacations abroad. Driven by the urgent need to reduce our carbon footprint in the fight against climate change and also to emphasise the joy of travelling at a slower pace, experiencing people and places along the way.
We embrace this wholeheartedly and have personally travelled to several of our destinations from the UK by train, ferry and car over the years.
Recently, we worked closely with our first UK client who wanted a holiday in Lithuania without flying - thank you to them for being pioneers on this new tour! How they travelled to/from the Baltics is detailed below as an example, but where you choose to visit when you get there is completely up to you.

No-fly holiday to Lithuania
Overall we had a lovely time and thoroughly enjoyed the experience in terms of the mode of travel, accommodation and sightseeing. Everything worked extremely well. All our walking tours were good and we especially enjoyed asking our local guides about their and their families’ experiences during communist times. Thank you for organising this trip for us. We are very happy to recommend this mode of travel to and from the Baltics.
