On this 8-day gay group trip, we will explore the three countries that make up the Baltic States: Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia. The Baltic States are a smattering of Scandinavian, Polish and Russian influences, but individually, these countries have their own distinct cultures and history. While visiting, you’ll find a rich history to explore, as these small countries have weathered many a storm and preserved their identities throughout time. On this gay group trip, you’ll be travelling with style, in luxury hotels and eating in the best restaurants.
Upon arrival, you’ll be transferred from the airport to our 5-star Hotel in Vilnius Old Town. You’ll have the day at your own leisure to rest or explore after your flight. Then in the evening we’ll have a welcome dinner.
