Water tourism season starts in Birštonas

Water tourism is currently very popular in Birštonas. The number of water routes has been increasing and a bigger number of entrepreneurs have been offering their services in the bodies of water.

Regular routes by steamboat “Vytenis” and pleasure boat “Justina” have been organised several years in a row. These boats carry passengers along the Rivers Nemunas and Verknė.
In response to the current trends, entrepreneurs have been organising other routes as well. Tourists have also been offered a wider range of ships and boats.
The major novelty of this water tourism season is a pleasure cruise KAUNAS-BIRŠTONAS-KAUNAS. The first trip is scheduled on 24 June, St John's Day. This cruise has received great attention; as much as 75 per cent of tickets have already been sold to the first trip. During the all-day-long trip, passengers will have an exceptional opportunity to enjoy the view of the fabulous loops of the River Nemunas, become acquainted with the objects of interest in Birštonas, and have a good time with family and friends.
Further information about this trip (time of departure, route programmes and prices) is available at the e-shop of Kaunas Tourism Information Centre and Convention Bureau at:

Tourists are also offered individual trips by Viking and Dragon boats.
This season, kayak rental “Plauk baidare žemyn upe” offers cognitive-recreational kayak trips along the River Verknė. On all summer Sundays, trips will be organised for Birštonas guests and everybody who is interested in knowing Birštonas surroundings by water.
When kayaking, it is worth seeing the objects of interest in our region: Paverkniai Hillfort, Monkey Bridge, White Mound, “Ožkų pečius” (Goats' Stove).
You will enjoy the view of the confluence of the Rivers Verknė and Nemunas and see Birštonas from a different perspective.
Birštonas also offers the rental of rowing boats, pedalos and kayaks.
Rural tourism homesteads “Punios aidas” and “Plaukiam Verkne” offer kayaking along the River Verknė.
The recreational boating season lasts until the beginning of November.
