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.
Travelling to Vilnius by ferry has many advantages; unlike planes ferries do not have luggage restrictions, therefore you can take as much as you can fit in your car.
You can drive a car you are use to, unlike hiring one when you arrive in Lithuania, and are refreshed after a nice peaceful sleep onboard. You also have the freedom to explore the surrounding area, without the need to rely on public transport.
