You will be collected from the meeting point in the Old Town of Klaipeda. A quick transfer to the upper reaches of Dane River and you will be ready to paddle. You will begin with a briefing, introduction to canoe paddling and you'll practice some basic canoe strokes. Led by a guide you will paddle towards the Old Town of Klaipeda, exploring the old embankments, mid-century Memel fortifications and finally the Old Town with its Prussian architecture. This is a short, guided tour, so you'll be informed about a lot of interesting facts about the history of this almost 800-year-old town, and of course, you will have the opportunity to take some pictures of you paddling this stylish cedar strip canoe.

What an amazing experience this was! We were in Klaipeda for one day and opted for the morning canoe ride so we’d have time to venture around too. Janis went above and beyond to ensure we were prepared and also taught us some history about this beautiful city along the way. It was the perfect amount of time and his instruction was excellent all throughout. He picked us up right at the cruise port and we walked back from Old Town when the excursion was over. Highly recommend if you’re looking for an activity to see the natural beauty while getting some exercise. Janis handcrafts his own canoes which made this truly memorable, don’t hesitate to book this.

Eight of us ranging in age from 18-70 spent 15 days in the Baltic and this was our absolute top experience. We loved the guide, the canoes and the experience overall. We had a variety of skill levels and our guide (who is also the canoe craftsman) made the trip so much fun and truly very easy. This is a must do experience. Thank you so very much! The canoes are a work of art.
