"As a Baltic travel professional I totally agree that summer months are more attractive, however, it October or March could be the best time for the travelers seeking amber storms, willing to see migration of million birds, to enjoy mushroom picking. Our mission is to help discovering the hidden fragile beauty behind the popular conception summer or winter, even if it could require a small mindset shift. "

Spring: What can be more unstable than a spring! Day temperature 5-20°C; at night – 3-10°C.
Important to mind that spring weather is unpredictable and likes surprises: from wind to rain, from the hot sun to light snow even. Some ice could stay on the water.
Summer: In June the temperature allows to enjoy outdoors (18-25 °C) but the nights are still chill. It becomes warmer in July, August (18-30°C). temperature at night allows comfortable camping, swimming in the sea or lakes. September stays comfortable enough for the outdoor activities and sometimes even pleases us by the very hot days (18-30°C).
The weather is the most reliable and the least of rain is expected the second part of the summer.
Autumn: Time for the warm winter jacket day or night in October (8–16°C) and in November (0–10°C). The temperature at night does not differ much from the day, roughly – few degrees less. Better be prepared for the rain, sleet and even snow in November. However it's not a white season yet.
Winter: Time for the warmest clothes and best boots December, January and February are true winter months. March is expected to be warmer, but it happens to have snow or sleet.
February is the coolest month with the biggest chance of snow. The last previous winters were generous with snow, thick ice and frost. However with the climate change we do not have the guarantee of the white baltic winters as it used to be.
One of the reasons that insures the tourist and teh locals is trusting the Police. Lithuanians have experienced remarkable increase of Trusting the police since ten years. People feel as they can trust the officers in danger or when a small help is needed. Most of the officers are able to speak english, so they can help foreigners as well.Lithuanian cities used to have one or few "red tag" dangerous districts. However, many of those districts had changed for good and safe. For being more relaxed, we recommend consulting your guide or local friend to provide you with the list of "heads up" places in each particular town.
