Project Details:










1 June - 31 August 2016

Bunkhouses are located in a very heart of picturesque Varniai regional park, only meters away from the lake, which is famous for being the only lake in Lithuania to wash out amber on its' shores. Excavation site is 5 km away and survey places are all within 10 km radius from the place of residency. A driver will pick up participants daily to and from survey/excavation sites. Project participants will stay at the bunkhouses in numbers ranging from 2 to 5 in one bunkhouse. Each bunkhouse has its' separate shower with hot and cold water, WC, electrical stove, refrigerator, electrical tea kettle, dishes, cutlery and bedding. Food could be bought at the towns' grocery shops and prepared at home; alternatively participants could be eating at the local restaurants (there are 2 restaurants in the town). There is an option to rent a sauna or a hot tub, enjoy your free time while exploring the lake on a water bike or in a canoe or a boat. There is a beach volleyball court, BBQ place etc.
CHEAPER but less comfortable housing option is available. Please inquire.

This price includes all the above mentioned housing expenses with all free time activities included in the price, transport from one of the airports (Vilnius, Kaunas, Palanga) or railway/bus stations (Vilnius, Kaunas, Klaipeda) to the place of residency as well as back to the place of departure, transport to and from survey/excavation sites, work tools, optional weekend trips to Klaipeda (Memel), Curonian Spit, Baltic Sea and famous archaeological sites and museums of Western Lithuania.
