Ferries to Lithuania

Nestling in Europe’s northeast corner is Lithuania, a country filled with baroque architecture, vast lakes and lush forests.

One of the highlights is the ‘Hill of Crosses’ situated just north of Siauliai, a pilgrimage site of 100,000 crosses and giant crucifixes covering a large grassy mound. On a less busy day, it has an eerie atmosphere but it is a truly remarkable sight. It signifies the survival of Catholicism throughout the country’s tumultuous history. In the 1940s, Lithuanians would sneak past Soviet soldiers to stick their cross in the hill as an act of loyalty to their heritage.

The Palace of the Grand Dukes of Lithuania in the capital, Vilnius, is a must see. Originally constructed in the 15th Century, it has since been remodelled over the centuries and you’ll find fascinating artefacts and ceremonial halls inside.

Whilst in the capital, stroll through the Cathedral Square on a Sunday where locals participate in morning Mass. Overshadowed by the Vilnius Cathedral, it also hosts military parades, fairs, public events and is considered the liveliest part of the city.

In the 1960s, the artist and Christian, Vilius Orvidas, created the wonderful Orvidas Garden in Salantai, featuring religious sculptures and carvings. It was an act of religious expression against the Soviet rule.

A testament to Lithuania’s wonderful scenery is the Aukštaitija National Park in the east, which is home to 200-year-old pine trees, 48 species of birds and 160 lakes.

There are daily ferry routes to Klaipeda departing from Karlshamn in south Sweden, which take around half a day and from Kiel in northern Germany, which take slightly longer.

Lithuania reviews

  • "Great service and 2 pleasant trips"

    Booked a dover - Dunkerque return Flexi ticket, due to changes with our arrival time at the port each way we were offered and took more conveniently timed Dover - Calais ferries each way.  From booking on line, through making on line booking amendments, via friendliness & helpfulness of staff in both Dover & the 2 French ports, to service on board, this was a smooth and easy experience. Both ferries very quiet for leisure passengers and included meal voucher each way. 1 of 2 restaurants open and offered choice of 4 meals including vegetarian option. Also used premium lounges and enjoyed opportunity to fully stretch out on chaiselongue style seating after non stop-drive from/to Scotland, though low passenger numbers meant we would have been able to do this in standard seating areas too. Use DFDS whenever we go to the continent and always happy. New ship Cote d'Opal not just clean and neat but really friendly design / colour template to boot, made the crossing in plenty sunshine feel like a mini cruise.

  • "Dover to Calais and back"

    Had a great crossing to Calais on 10.3.22 9.30pm. Very quiet on board, mostly lorry drivers. Free meal voucher was very much appreciated too, variety of food and big portions.  Return ferry at 11.50 am on 20.3.22 was much the same, a little busier, food was good too.

  • "A channel crossing which feels like a cruise"

    I felt that everything was handled with great efficiency and courtesy. The ship was clean and the free meal was delicious! My only criticism is that DFDS only had one check-in booth open - I nearly missed my reserved sailing despite arriving over an hour early at the port. A second check-in clerk would allow "un-problematic" customers to bypass a blockage!
