For a relaxed alternative way to travel, you could explore the many ferry routes that connect Europe and Scandinavia to Klaipėda, Lithuania’s port city.

What better way to approach Lithuania than by sea, and be met with views toward the Curonian Spit, one of the country’s natural treasures. You’ll also find Klaipėda to be the perfect welcoming point, from which you can travel to Vilnius by car or train.
Travelling to Vilnius from Europe and Scandinavia by ferry is easy when using Lithuania’s ferry services from Sweden (Karlshamn) and Germany (Kiel/Sassnitz).

These overnight ‘cruise’ ferries to Lithuania allow you to take your car, caravan or motorhome and arrive in the coastal city of Klaipeda.

From there Vilnius is only a short car journey of just over 3 hours via the E85.

Tickets and schedules

You can find the routes and schedules and buy tickets by visiting the website of the Central Klaipėda terminal.

And once you‘re in Lithuania, you can travel to Vilnius via bus, train or car sharing.
