Smiltynė: Gateway to the Curonian Spit in Lithuania

About the experience “Gateway to the Curonian Spit”

Don’t miss an opportunity to explore this unique part of Lithuania – the Curonian Spit National park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

To reach the Curonian Lagoon, this guided bicycle tour begins with a short ride on the Dane River promenade to the Old Ferry Terminal close to the Old Memel Castle area. After the short ferry crossing to Smiltyne, the cycling starts through the pine woods on the Curonian Spit to the sea harbour’s gate. Its long moles (man-made sea-defences) is really famous: it heads to the Baltic Sea for several kilometres.

En route to the Curonian Lagoon, we will enjoy beautiful views of the Baltic Sea! Changing panoramic face of Klaipeda city with its modern skyscrapers, explore an overland exposition of ancient wooden boats and Former Soviet trawlers as well as traditional fisherman’s smallholding; say „Hello!“ to the Baltic seals guarding the Maritime Museum and Dolphinarium. Relax for a break on a fine, sandy beach, go for a swim in the sea. Perhaps, discover a piece of amber washed ashore.

Tour distances: 19 km (12 mi.) or 25 km (16 mi.) easy riding even for non experienced people

Cycling grade: Most of the time you will cycle on bike paths which are mainly flat, with some gentle undulations.

Starting point: bike rental centre, Naujoji uosto str., Klaipėda (near Pilies Bridge). The tour could be started from Klaipėda cruise ship terminal or any other place in Klaipėda (for extra price).
