HIKE ON KLAIPĖDA COAST

HIKE ON THE COAST OF KLAIPĖDA

All those who could not make to Liepāja or those to whom one Coastline Trek is just not enough are invited to the 4th annual Coastline Trek’18: Klaipėda with Gjensidige!

On the 22nd of September hiking adventures are going  back to where it all started – to the Curonian Spit. Five different routes will be laid out across the beaches of Neringa, passing through the ancestry woodlands, historical fishing villages and majestic white sand dunes. Horizons of the Curonian Spit turn even more magical in the light of breaking autumn, so get your boots ready for an adventure of a lifetime.

START LOCATION: Smiltynės g. 13, Klaipėda, Lietuva (GPS: 55.706008, 21.110603)
