    Breathtaking adventures and extreme value for money are the hallmarks of a ‘You Just Live Once’ trip. Our trips are aimed at travellers who prefer a fun, independent, convenient and responsible way to travel. The structure for a great travel experience is in place, but plenty of free time means you can go off and make your own discoveries. What makes us different from other tour operators is that we do what we do because we love it and we enjoy doing it... we don’t do this for profit. In fact, most of our trips are led by us personally or we are part of the group. Driven by our dedication, passion and experience we strive to make each tour more exciting and interesting than the last. Whenever it is not possible for us to be on the trips, we only use local leaders. This is our core philosophy, and one that works perfectly. By employing a leader who is local to the area you are travelling through, you benefit from the wealth of his or her first hand knowledge. He knows the best restaurants to eat in, the best food to choose when you’re there and how to read the menu! He knows the best time to visit the sites, the best way to get from A to B, the best backstreets to explore, and most importantly how to communicate with everyone else in the country. Fully trained, licensed and fluent in English, your local guide will be the difference between a great holiday experience and an exceptional one.

    “The itinerary was amazing viewing the best highlights of the amazing Brazil, fantastic. All the excursions were well organised and great, we made some great new friends and we had the time of our life… and all of this a whacking good price!! Brazil. What an amazing country! YouJustLiveOnce.com if you want a unique trip.” Duncan Borg

    “It was a huge leap of faith for me to entrust YJLO with my long dreamed-about trip to Peru. I had consulted foreign agencies before coming across YJLO, but something struck me as right about this agency, and the staff's enthusiasm for exciting travel is infectious. I went with my gut feeling and trusted them with all my holiday arrangements. They were extremely patient and helpful with all my questions, especially since I did this trip alone. All I can say is that my instinct was 100% correct: the trip was one of the most wonderful things I have done in my life, everything went smoothly, and never once did I feel lost or was forgotten by any local reps. The excursions and activities were one burst of excitement after the other and the standard of the hotels was just right for me (clean, not too many frills, but not cheap hostel stuff either). My experience with YJLO was perfect, and I can honestly recommend YJLO to anyone who loves seeing and exploring the world more closely and with enthusiasm. As soon as I can afford another trip like this, YJLO will be the one I call first!” Adrian Cardona “Real travelling with a difference. Value for money; active trips for those who like nature and culture, who like to meet new interesting people...You just live once....so grab your backpack and travel.” Claudio Bezzina

    “A very well organised fun-packed trip to a well chosen destination offering scenic sights, a great choice of activities and a world of adventure. Fun tour guide and company. A truly memorable experience. Well done and thanks!” Jackie Briffa

    “This is the second time I have travelled with YJLO, and it has once again been a pleasure. The itinerary fitted what I wanted to see most in South Morocco, and it followed a logical order. The company was brilliant and it was a very enjoyable trip. YJLO trips are not for people who want everything served on a plate, but for those travellers who are active and enjoy an absorbing, interesting and fun holiday, YJLO is definitely the way to go!” Adrian Cardona

    “Nothing in life is perfect but the trips Youjustliveonce.com organises, it’s fair to say, are pretty much as close as you can get!....And I'm a pretty critical person :)” Stephanie Cassar

    “YJLO is the best source for adventurous trips. I wouldn't call them tours because that surely wouldn't do them justice.” Robert Vella

    “It was a very memorable experience travelling with Youjustliveonce.com. The itineraries were excellent and the tour guide showed us his experience and preparation in travelling. The trekking and site seeing were impressive. If I went to Slovenia alone, I'm sure that I had missed some magnificent attractions that the tour guide planned for us. The hotels chosen were also comfortable, central and the all the amenities required. This was very value for money holiday and I recommend it to anyone who is looking for an active and enjoyable holiday.” Antonella Massa

    “I really want to thank YouJustLiveOnce for their dedication to make this trip an unforgettable one. I met lots of interesting people that were so friendly and willing to help. “Life is partly what we make it, and partly what it is made by the friends we choose.” I think this quote fits just right for this trip we experienced together. If it was not for all the great people that were on this trip, this holiday would have not been so successful as it was.” Andrew Giordmaina

    WHAT OTHER TRAVELLERS SAID ABOUT YOUJUSTLIVEONCE.COM

    MALTA – KAUNAS – DRUSKININKAI Our trip will start in Kaunas, the second largest city in Lithuania. Since the only direct flight from Malta is with Ryanair who don’t have a fixed-price structure, it is not possible to include the price of the flight in the trip price. It is assumed that everyone travelling on this trip will fly on Ryanair flight FR8658 but anyone is free to make alternative flight arrangements for him/herself. Our flight will depart from Malta at 14:45 and will arrive in Kaunas 3 ½ hours later. Upon arrival at the airport, we will meet our local guide and drive to Druskininkai, our base for the night. Druskininkai is the largest and one of the most exciting resorts in Lithuania. It is famous for its natural surroundings, health spa amenities, museums, architectural monuments of local importance and leisure time activities. Everyone who visits the resort is attracted by its highly developed servicing, friendly local inhabitants and healthy environment. One day 2, we won’t have a fixed schedule since in Druskininkai there are a number of options which cater for different tastes and different people might prefer to partake in different activities. For example one can choose to take a leisurely boat trip across the Nemunas river to Liskiava, famous for its 17th century sacral ensemble vaults or the more adventurous can opt for a 3hr bicycle ride along one of the picturesque cycle trails available or even take a zip line course on the shores of the river. Obviously there will always be the option to visit one of the famous spa centers and enjoy one of the many therapeutic and relaxing treatments which the town of Druskininkai is so famous for. Once the group is closed the various options can be discussed and a plan for the day can be drafted. We will spend 2 nights in Druskininkai and dinner is included on both days. Accommodation will be in Hotel Regina or similar http://www.regina.lt/en

    ITINERARY - DAYS 1 & 2 (19-20 July)

    DRUSKININKAI – TRAKAI – VILNIUS

    After breakfast at our hotel we will make a quick visit to the nearby Grūtas Park – a controversial open air museum with a large collection of Soviet-era statues and Soviet ideological relics collected from around the country after Lithuania obtained its independence in 1990. After Grūtas we will drive to Trakai, the former capital of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania to visit the symbol of medieval Lithuania: Trakai Island Castle. The castle is the only one of its kind in Easter Europe and its Gothic architecture combined with the beautiful natural setting of Lake Galve around it make it not only unique but impressive. In the afternoon we’ll head 30 km east to Vilnius... Lithuania’s capital city. Vilnius’ old town was listed as a UNESCO Heritage site in 1994 and although it is one of the largest in Europe, it is relatively easy to navigate and best explored on foot. It’s well preserved mixture of Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque and classical architecture as well as its medieval layout and natural setting make it one of the most beautiful old towns in Central and Eastern Europe. During our walking tour we will see amongst others the Parliament building in the famous Gediminas Avenue, St. Peter & Paul’s Church, Cathedral Square, Vilnius University, Town Hall Sqaure, St. Anne’s Church and the Gates of Dawn. The rest of the evening will be free and we’ll have dinner (included) at a traditional Lithuanian restaurant.
