Full description
Discover the beauty of the largest and deepest Zemaitija lake, famous for its natural, cultural and scenic value. You will be guided through these crystal clear waters, so that you can truly enjoy something what is called the "Wet Wet Experience" - a combination of leisure paddling and a gourmet picnic. You will be taken on a well-known path of the Plateliai archipelago but in a unique, entertaining and memorable way.  Begin your adventure at a quiet and safe lagoon, where paddlers will master their basic canoeing skills with the help of an instructor. You will learn basic strokes, how to handle a canoe and of course safety rules. After, you will paddle to the center of the lake through the picturesque archipelago, where the guide can take some photos of you paddling and of course a couple of them will taken from air with the help of a drone. You'll then navigate to the Castle Island. A castle that used to belong to Lithuanian Dukes stood there in 15th century. After exploring this site, you'll head to another deserted island to have this all favorite picnic basket lunch. Simply sit back, have a glass of wine, coffee or tea and enjoy the view. Once you're finished, head back enjoying the peaceful and mind-blowing sunset.

      Abolute lovely days

      Already 5 Minutes after booking and the official booking confirmation I received another email from Janis (the tour guide) directly Asking me, where it should be best to meet, or to pick me wherever I am. As it is still pre-season I was lucky to be the only guest, having just a completely private tour. Janis picked me up exactly on time in the morning. We have been out on the lake until afternoon. It was sich a great day, that I can hardly put it into word. Janis and I shared one canoe. A beautiful one, which he builds himself during winter times. In summer he offers tours with it. We had a lot of chatting during the paddling. Janis speaks absolute fluently English. But we also shared quiet moments, simply enjoying the beautiful nature around us. After a great picknick for lunch on one of the small islands in the lake we kept on paddling. Janis then let a drone fly above us and taking great pictures from above.
