One of the gems of "Augshzeme" region, the Memele river marks a border between Latvia and Lithuania. Taking it's origins deep into Lithuanian land, most of its navigable lenght lies along the borderland. Nice, small and afterwards not so small and swift river with a christal clear water. Simple. No dams, no industry or farming polution - this all is gone with the soviets.


What's is essential - this river in this flat region has a meaningful slope (see the slope per/km graph on the right) - the river flows most of its lenght!


Memele river routes are serviced by Campo outlet in Skaistkalne - "Krastmalas" guest house. See your rental contract for contact details.
