The Curonian Spit National Park

About the experience

Take a change to explore the most unique place in Lithuania: the Curonian Spit National Park.

This guided by bike & boat tour starts with a short ride along the Dane River promenade to the Old Ferry Terminal. After a short ferry ride to Smiltynė we join an asphalt bike path of the Seaside Cycle Route (in the future supposed to be part of the Iron Curtain Trail / EuroVelo 13) which takes us along the Curonian Spit to Nida.

En route we will enjoy beautiful views of the Baltic Sea and the Curonian Lagoon, have a break on golden sand beach for a swim in the sea and, hopefully, discovering a piece of amber washed ashore.

In Juodkrantė, we might stop for lunch (not included). Here it is possible to visit the Hill of Witches, where a hundred fanciful and folksy wooden sculptures of Lithuanian legends scattered along a forest path. Watching a colony of grey herons and cormorants.

Afterwards, en route to Nida, we will pass across two small settlements too, a wooden footpath to the “Dead” dunes and on the highest dune of the Curonian Spit – Vecekrugas (67.2 m). Arriving in Nida, a former old fishermen’s village and nowadays one of the most beautiful resorts in Lithuania, we can visit museums (not included), go for a walk on the Great sand dune or just relax with a glass of good Lithuanian beer.

Finally we will take a ferry for 2-hour ride back to Klaipėda. En route we will enjoy a beautiful sunset over the impressive “Dead” sand dunes.
