02Explore Kuršių Nerija National Park

A hike out to the Curonian Spit at Kuršių Nerija National Park can feel a bit like you are exploring a desert landscape. This narrow strip of sand dunes extends out away from the shoreline and separates the Baltic Sea and the Curonian Lagoon. With water on both sides and rolling sand dunes beneath your feet, the view surrounding you will be truly majestic. The lagoon itself is perfect for water sports like sailing, kayaking, and canoeing.
