Getting there & around
Getting to the area without your own wheels is tough. In summer Šilutė is served by 10 buses a day to/from Klaipėda (6.50Lt), five to/from Kaunas (20.50Lt, 180km) and four to/from Vilnius (32Lt, 280km).
Boats are the best means of exploring the delta (it's 8km from Pakalnė to Kintai by boat but 45km by road). The main routes follow the three main delta tributaries - the Atmata (13km), Skirvytė (9km) and Pakalnė (9km) Rivers - which fan out westwards from Rusnė.
Kintai, Ventainė and Laimutės rent boats with a boatman-guide. The park office in Šilutė might be able to help.
