Locally renowned, nature-filled, undercrowded and affordable spa retreats stretching over forests, national parks, rivers and beaches showcase Lithuanian spa heritage as deeply rooted in the mud, salt and mineral waters as within the character and ancient traditions of its inhabitants.
Heavily forested and pine scented Druskininkai nestled on the right bank of the Nemunas river marks 230th anniversary of spa heritage and wellness accolades. Highly esteemed SPA VILNIUS Druskininkai boasts award-winning massage therapists, including Aleksandras Zubkevič, a bronze medalist at the International Massage Association World Championships. While the spa capital is hailed for healing mud and mineral water with a 32 million litres capacity per year, Grand Spa Lietuva evokes the largest and most environmentally efficient resort properties in the Baltics. In addition to dozens of health centres and over 400 nature-filled treatments, Keturi Vėjai restaurant opens to postcard-perfect views offering serene spa vistas.

Meanwhile, Birštonas, 90-km away across the heady landscape of the Forest Trail, within largest protected area in Lithuania, Dzūkija National Park, offers the best healing practices from the past and the present. Surrounded by the least populated great outdoors, it is zig zagged by miles of scenic forest roads made for Baltic “barefoot reflexology”. Echoing Goop-like ethos, spa resort Eglės redefines 200-year-old artisanal mix of mud and mineral waters, reflected in mineral water baths, mud baths, and other balneotherapy procedures. Meanwhile, mineral marvels are reserved for Vytautas, single-source mineral spa facility in the Baltics carved from a unique mineral composite of the Sofia spring residing in the hills following the curves of Nemunas River. Mineral-rich healing powerhouse is also married up with Druskupis micro-climate and superior sea-salt-enriched oxygen concocting unique aromatherapy in the open, and unprecedented lungs deep clean.
