    To the Curonian Spit by ferry

    Ferry to the Curonian Spit
    3 more images

    When coming from the Lithuanian mainland, the Curonian Spit can only be reached by ferry.

    The best connections are from Klaipeda's old and new port. Ferries from the old port leave only in summer and are mainly for pedestrians.

    They go to Smiltyne, whereas the bigger ferries which are also for cars leave from the new port. These go to the beginning of the main street on the Curonian Spit.

    Another option to get to the Curonian Spit might be the hydrofoil connection between Kaunas and Nida along the Nemunas river, but in Summer 2006 it was out of service.

    Eurolines bus - Kaunas to Nida
    3 more images

    We arrived in Nida by bus from Kaunas (4,5 h) and left Nida by bus to Klaipeda (2 h).

    Nida's bus station is situated at Nagliu 18e, right in the heart of the town.

    It has frequent micro bus services to Smiltyne near the northern end of the Curonian Spit where the ferries to Klaipeda leave.

    Other destinations which can be reached by direct bus from Nida include Kaliningrad, Kaunas and Vilnius.

    Nida in walking distance

    With only about 2000 inhabitants Nida is a relatively small village which can be best explored on foot. Even the surounding landscape including the sand dunes and beaches at the Baltic Sea are still in walking distance from Nida.
    Just keep in mind to bring proper walking or even hiking shoes.

    Ferry to the Spit

    Smiltyne ferry 2001
    1 more image

    A short ferry trip across from Klaipeda to Smiltyne and then there is a minibus to Nida. Alternatively, if you travel with your own car, you can take the actual big ferry for cars and buses.

    The Smiltyne ferry costs 1,5 Lita for a passenger in 2001.

    For both ferries you only pay going over, there is no extra cost for coming back.

    Buses from Smiltyne

    The easiest way to get to Nida is by bus from the northern tip of the Neringa, by the ferry in Smiltyne. The trip costed 11 Litas per person in April 2006, and takes slightly under an hour. Beautiful scenery along the road.

    Ways to get there

    by giedre Written Jul 7, 2005
    The Baltic Sea

    There is more then one way to reach Nida.
    1.You take the direct bus to Nida,which will take you to the very center of town. And i believe in cost and time wise its the best way to travel.
    2.Taking the ferry from Klaipeda to Smiltyne,and then a bus or microbus to Nida,which costs about 7litas (1euro= 3,44litas).(Ferry to both ways costs 1,5litas for one person).
    3.Going by car.Never done it myself, but from what i heard its pure waist of money-not counting the petrol, you have to pay for the ferry(about 20litas , i think)and additional money for pollution about 60litas.
    4.When i was small,so about 15 years, there was a direct so called 'rocket'(kind of motor ship) from Kaunas to Nida. I heard from the end of this summer they are renewing these trips.Four hours journey by river Nemunas from Kaunas to Nida , including dinner would cost about 100lt.It might still change ,so for this info you have to take a look in internet.

    Klaipeda to Nida

    by guiiillaume Written May 2, 2005

    when i came, there was a ferry to cross the river almost every hour at klaipeda. Then , i noticed there were buses almost every 1H30 which go until Nida.
    be careful when you want to come back to Klaipeda if it's a day trip cause the last bus which came back was not very late.... but it was in winter.
    and of course, the best way to discover Nida is by foot :)
    be carfeul too at some kind of "taxis" ( independant drivers in fact) that purpose to take you until there for a price much higher than a bus ticket. Only interesting to take it if you're a group of 6-8 persons / but it's faster.

  • Getting to Nida

    by The_Global_Penguins Written May 18, 2004

    Firstly take the ferry from Old Town Ferry Port in the centre of Klaipeda to Smiltyne - this will cost you 1.50lt and then get the bus from Smiltyne to Nida, that should cost 7lt. You pay/show your pre-paid ticket when you get off. All in all it's about a 1hr 15 minute journey.

    Bus station

    Nida has its own bus station with waiting room and toilet. From not only local minibuses depart but at least in peak season there is a daily direct bus to Kaunas, to Vilnius, Kaliningrad and the office also sells Euroline tickets for Europe wide destinations.
