Tour overview
Explore Klaipeda from a different perspective. Take a look at the city's industrial part, discover the old Memel fortifications and get up close and personal with the Meridianas sailing ship.
This city tour is suitable for travelers with tight schedule. It is also a great introduction into paddling and an opportunity to experience a real cedar strip canoe in action.

What we'll do
We will begin with a briefing, introduction to canoe paddling and will practice some basic canoe strokes. Led by a guide you will paddle towards the Old Town of Klaipeda, exploring the old embankments, mid-century Memel fortifications and finally the old town with its Prussian architecture. This is an intense, yet interesting tour, so we will tell you a lot of facts about the history of our almost 800 year old town and of course will make some memorable pictures (optional) of you paddling this stylish cedar strip canoe.

Things to take: sunscreen and a full change of clothes.
What to wear while canoeing is important.

When the air and water are warm, simply dress for a day at the beach. Keeping in mind to wear things that protect you from the sun and keep you cool.

When the air is cool, you have to assess the conditions and your capabilities more carefully.

The key concept to bear in mind is layering. Several thin garments will keep you just as warm as a single thicker one, and are much more versatile. Remember you’ll need to think about staying cool as much as staying warm, and you can always add or subtract layers. The base-layer provides insulation and picks up perspiration and either absorbs it (like cotton or wool) or wicks it outward (like synthetic fibers). You want moisture to be wicked away. The insulating layer can be wool, fleece, or a similar material. Look for garments that are cut to allow complete freedom of movement. The outer layer protects you, the base-layer, and the insulating layer from the elements. Make sure it is both windproof and waterproof.

Footwear can range from old sneakers to hiking boots, to rubber boots.
