Rafting on the Neman River

The upper part of the Neman to the Stolbtsy is better to pass near the main tributary of the river. In this place the route will please you with a lot of water meadows.

After some time, Neman rests on the right side of the steep bank — this is the tract of Kruglitsa. The place is mesmerizing with its beauty.

In the village of Berezino the river Sula flows into the river Neman. Not reaching the mouth of the river Ushi there is an excellent place for spending the night — a cozy glade on a cliff in the height of 2 m. It is located in a beautiful pine forest.

It takes about 3 hours to reach the confluence of the river Neman and the river Berezina. After the confluence, the width of the river reaches 80 m. The entire route to the river Gavye Neman passes along the banks covering with junipers.
