The natural bounty from the cold-water seas, rivers and forests has fed the people of Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia for centuries. Realising the best way to keep food miles low is to embrace the cooking techniques and traditional ingredients of their ancestors, innovative farm-to-table restaurants have cropped up in Vilnius, Riga and Tallinn, creating a sustainable food scene akin to Scandinavia’s New Nordic movement.
Embark on an unforgettable rail journey, the low-carbon way, from London through the heart of Europe as we kickstart our Sustainable Journeys adventure en route to The Baltics, stopping in Brussels, and Warsaw before arriving in Vilnius, Lithuania. From Vilnius, you’ll join The Baltics by Electric Car trip.
Sustainable Journeys are delighted to share why we partner with Travel Addicts Club our local representative in The Baltics. Our collaboration and the Journeys we have created together align seamlessly with our ethos in travel.
It has to be said that the Baltic states aren’t the place to head if you’re looking for cuisine largely sourced from imported ingredients, high-end shopping with products manufactured in distant sweatshops, and stays in hotels owned by huge chains. However, if you’re wanting a holiday full of outdoor adventure where sustainability is very much the focus, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania are ideal.
