7. Guided Canoe Tour of the Curonian Spit Lithuania
A unique combination of wind, water and sand has been shaping this narrow strip of land since the beginning of time. Today it is known as the Curonian Spit and it is a UNESCO world heritage site. There is plenty to see here: the migrating dunes, the wildlife, the old fishermen villages and, last but not the least, the Pervalka Lighthouse. The combination of the spectacular nature, cultural and historical heritage and a truly unforgettable cedar canoe paddling experience makes this tour one of a kind. You will begin with a picturesque ferry transfer to the Curonian Spit. You will travel from Klaipeda to the village of Pervalka, passing Juodkrante with its peaceful embankments. After a short briefing, you will proceed to Pervalka Lighthouse. You will paddle along the shore, enjoying picturesque views of the dunes, the Curonian Lagoon and of course, the main landmark of this trip, the Pervalka Lighthouse. After a short photo opportunity at the lighthouse (no need to risk your own equipment, your guide will take pictures with his camera and a drone) you will paddle towards the dunes. Here you will sit back, have a glass of wine, a cup of coffee or tea and enjoy the view. On your way back you will make two stops, first, at the famous heron and cormorant colony, one of the largest colonies of these birds in Europe, second, in Juodkrante village (formerly known as Schwarzort).
