Ūlos springs – in Belarus, in the vicinity of Peles, in the depths of the Guda Forest. Length – 84 km.
The views of the valley of the river vary at every turn. In places, the trees are cut down and the river passes. High sandy cliffs, continental dunes. Ūla middle valley from Rudni to Zervynai – Ūla Landscape Reserve. Below Pauosupė, almost all the area of the valley is covered with a turf lush, which is very moisturized by sprinkling springs on the edge of the valley. From Zervynai Ūla crosses the section of dunes and until Manchgirė flows into a narrow canyon valley with high, constantly eroding cliffs. The picturesque expositions often continue at Žiūrais, Trakiškiai, although the valley is spreading somewhat, the terraces and the latch are highlighted. In the lower reaches, where Ula reaches the moraine, there are many stones. For those who want to beat all Ūla, we offer to start the journey from the village of Dubičiai. Water tourism measures in the Ūla River The territory of Dzūkija National Park is only available after obtaining a permit and paying a fee for recreational equipment of the Ūla water tourism route. The main obstacles are the brown dam, the tree bog, the small shrubs. Ola water is clear and pure, rich in groundwater, springs and springs. In such waters, trout, sea trout and grayling love it.

Merkys is the ninth longest river in Lithuania and the largest river in Dzūkija. Nourished by abundance of streams and springs, its waters are flowing through the sandy Dainava region. Due to abundant inflows, water is colder than other Lithuanian rivers. In the Merkel flows Ula, Grūda, Skroblus. The Merkys River is quite wide and can easily be reached by kayaking and rubber boats and rafts. The main obstacles are flooded trees and rocks underwater. Merkys flows through the picturesque Dzūkija National Park; at Merkine flows into the Nemunas. Swimming in the Merkel, compared to Ula, is lighter, with fewer obstacles, which is why many tourists overcome this river. We recommend that you choose the route by mileage. It is possible to swim for 1 – 3 days.
