New! GUIDED or SELF-GUIDED BIKE TOUR FOR TRAVELLERS FROM CRUISE SHIPS IN PORT OF CALL KLAIPĖDA

1-day Guided or Self-guided Bike&Boat Tour from Klaipeda (Code GX4 or SGX4)

Take a change to explore the most unique place in Lithuania – the Curonian Spit National Park. We’ll start this guided by bike & boat tour 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 which takes us along the Curonian Spit to Nida. En route we’ll 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), visit the Hill of Witches which houses a hundred fanciful and folksy wooden sculptures of Lithuanian legends scattered along a forest path and watch a colony of grey herons and cormorants. Later en route to Nida we’ll also pass two small settlements, a wooden footpath to the “Dead” dunes and the highest dune of the Curonian Spit – Vecekrugas (~67 m). After arrival in Nida, a former old fishermen’s village and nowadays one of the most beautiful resorts in Lithuania, we can visit K.Mizgiris Amber Gallery (free entrance) and museums (not included), go for a walk on the Great sand dune or just relax with a glass of good Lithuanian beer. In the evening, we take a boat for 2-hour ride back from Nida to Klaipėda with a short stop in Juodkrantė, en route we’ll enjoy a beautiful sunset over the impressive sand dunes.

E-bike/Pedelec rider profiles: easy riding even for non-experienced people!
