Check-in at Hotel Nidos Smilte***.

Day 4 – Day 9
With its location at the Curonian Lagoon and its combination of old-fashioned fishing village and fashionable sea resort Nida is one of the most attractive places on the entire Baltic Sea Coast You will be spending a whole week on your own in this small paradise and there is enough to do: biking on the spit, hiking in the dunes, boating in the lagoon, swimming in the sea, sun bathing on the sandy beach, playing tennis in the sun, lunching on smoked fish, attending the many summer concerts and enjoying life in full scale.

Day 10
The last day in paradise. You still have time to enjoy Nida, take a last swim in the Baltic Sea, make the last stroll through the fishermen’s village, enjoy a last breathtaking view of the Curonian Lagoon, do you last bargains in the amber and souvenir stalls in the pedestrian centre of the resort and shoot your last holiday photos from the Curonian Spit. Late in the afternoon we board the coach which brings us up the spit and back to Klaipeda. Check-in at Hotel Radisson Blu Klaipeda**** or similar. The evening offers an optional Lithuanian dinner at Restaurant 19th Century.

We now continue to the Samogitia National Park, where we embark on a walking tour around the picturesque Lake Plateliai.
