This is a unique water route, because the largest part of it lies by the Naglių nature reserve, where walking is forbidden. In the beginning of the tour we will paddle towards the old Pervalka lighthouse which is situated in the water. After having passed the Žirgų (Horses‘) Cape we will enjoy the scenic landscapes of the Dead Dunes and reach the Naglių Cape where we will have a picnic. Afterwards we will pass the legendary Drimzako Bay and reach the Avies Kulno (Sheep‘s heel) Cape. From here we will be able to see the biggest colony of great cormorants and grey herons in Europe: over 3000 pairs of these birds breed here. The tour will end in Juodkrantė, from where we will return to Nida by bus.
