Discover Reserves and forests Lithuania

Lithuanian forests are home to elks, stags, wild boars, wolves and lynxes. It is inadvisable to visit without a guide. Lithuania also hosts over 2,000 otters and the stork is the most popular bird in Lithuania. The country's four reserves, all lodged in its national parks, hold 35 wild animal species, 200 bird species, about twenty fish species and over 600 flower species. They can only be visited in the company of somebody who works at the reserve.
