Since prehistoric times people have lived on this elongated sand dune peninsula which separates the Curonian Lagoon from the Baltic Sea. Nearly 100 kilometres long and 0.4-4 kilometres wide, it has long been threatened by the natural forces of wind and waves. The tour begins with a visit to one of the oldest settlements on the Spit, the charming seaside resort of Juodkrante with its Amber Bay and many pleasing stone sculptures.

On your way to the Dunes, you will visit the Cormorants and Herons colony, an unusual bare place that still impresses everybody:)

After taking in the sights of the dead forest, you’ll travel on to theGrey Dunes (sometimes called Dead Dunes), a fascinating area of wind-blown dunes and grassy, vegetation-covered sand hills where you’ll be able to walk and be impressed by the sheer scale of the landscape.

In Nida, you’ll visit some of the highest sand dunes in Europe including the famous 52 metre high Parnidis Dune.

If you’re a literature lover you’ll enjoy the next stop at the Thomas Mann Memorial Museum, the house which the famous German author of Death in Venice and Dr Faustus had constructed in the town which he visited in 1930 and 1931.

Next up on the tour is the Mizgiriai Amber Gallery where you’ll learn all about amber, its uses and its place in Lithuanian culture and history. After coming back to Klaipeda you’ll make a photo-stop in the heart of Old Town - Theatre Square with “Ann from Tharaw” fountain and drama theatre. Afterwards You will be introduced to the small sculptures which became Klaipeda's Old Town attraction for many years. You will see the only existing ravelin in Klaipeda located on Jonas Hill and you will hear the story of the city's fortifications and defensive system.

After the Old Town walking tour, you will enjoy some free time for self-exploration, shopping or a relaxing coffee break in one of the local cafes.
