We invite you to a still undiscovered and fascinating country. For many travelers it would be the last European country to explore. Belarus is a land filled with primeval woodlands and pristine lakes, rural settings, the historical heritage of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth and Soviet cities like the capital Minsk.
In 2017 Baltic Blues House opened a new office in Minsk, Belarus, which was a result of the fast growth of the adventure and active travel segment developed by DMC Baltic Blues Adventure.
Moreover, this year Belarus became a visa free country for European visitors (for visits up to 5 days) making it easier and more affordable to arrange holidays there.
The cultural heritage and variety of exciting adventure holidays increased our company’s interest in Belarus. Agricultural, cycling, trekking and many other tours are included in visits to Belarus. Moreover, Belarus has outstanding cultural sights and an interesting history that attracts not only adventure travelers, but also typical leisure tourists. Many of our round trips combine visits to Lithuania and Poland with Belarus.
Our BEST SELLERS in Belarus:
Cultural Adventures: our tours are designed to show different sides of Belarusian history. On one hand, travelers get to see numerous Orthodox churches, castles and palaces left over from the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth period including Nesvizh and Mir Castles–two impressive UNESCO World Heritage Sites. On the other hand, Belarus is an important place for those interested in Soviet history and WW2, where Minsk is a superb example of grand Stalinist architecture. Finally, throughout Belarus traditional guesthouses (including converted farmhouses and windmills) provide the opportunity to experience local culture and hospitality, learn folklore and try some of the local produce, such as organic tea, bread, honey and vodka.
Wildlife: 40% of the national territory is forested. Wolves, bears, boars and powerful European bison all roam the countryside, a great destination for hikers and wildlife photographers. We arrange outstanding wildlife tours in National Parks with out-off-the-ordinary experiences–a wolf safari where travelers can take pictures of wolves, following wolf pathways and frequent marking places, which we know well. Additionally, a lot of vertebrate species can be observed, such as bison, elks, otters, beavers, black storks, etc.
Cycling tours: our cycling and walking holidays are excellent for those looking for active recreation that will trigger your imagination and make you excited about the hidden treasures of Belarus. Are you ready to glide through a landscape with eyes wide open and pedal to your hearts content? Baltic Blues cycling tours are here for you! Cycle in Minsk with its monumental Stalinist architecture, explore medieval castles and UNESCO heritage sights and get to know eco villages where you can learn about the post-soviet transition and life in modern day Belarus. Our cycling tours let you move fast enough from one exciting place to another one while still enjoying fresh air, the smell of flowers, listening to bird songs and stopping any time you wish.
We are happy to announce that starting from today Baltic Blues Travel and Baltic Escape are together!

Each tour operator has its own strong points and this consolidation will strengthen our positions in the Russian and Belorussian markets.
For several years, we have been organising international excursions to The Curonian Spit. Due to this, we came up with an idea to thank to this unique place and have fun by inviting the socially disadvantages children. We strive to do good things and enjoy by cleaning the nature, picking up the trashes from tourist hotspots and getting know each other and our lovely surrounding/ nature.
In 2016-2017 Baltic Blues House has organised 3 summer camps for 52 kids.
Every camps lasted 11 days and had numerous awesome educational and entertainment activities focused on learning about environmental protection and personal development through practical exercisers and games, as well as excursions to the Delphinium, Sea museum, hikes, boat trips along the dunes and 1000 other great memories.
Moreover these kids made the Curonian Spit cleaner – Collected 9000 litres of garbage in dunes, beach and playgrounds.
Everyone is welcome and can contribute to this social initiative. Our vision is to organise camps through the whole of summer and bring it to international level by inviting children from other countries. To make this happen, we kindly ask for support from other environmentally responsible travel companies and new investments.
See report from summer camps 2017.
