Tours to Latvia - An Undiscovered Baltic Gem

It might be small, but Latvia is an intricate tapestry of forests and lakes, starring its cosmopolitan capital, Riga, where a modest yet flamboyant spirit thrives.  Located on its namesake gulf beside the Baltic Sea, Riga is one of the three Baltic capitals you will visit on our escorted tour of Helsinki, Tallinn & Riga.  Commonly known as the Pearl of the Baltics, this shining example of a characterful Latvian city is an intriguing mass of contradictions, where elegant Art Nouveau masterpieces sit alongside brooding Gothic buildings and quaint wooden structures.

Dividing the city at its heart is the Daugava River, undoubtedly possessing something of a split personality, merging the flamboyant, elaborate and intricate with areas of stripped-back simplicity. You can expect to see building façades dripping with ornate carvings in the Old Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.  Wander a little further off the tourist track and you will find yourself in one of Riga’s ‘wooden neighbourhoods’, where the pace of life slows noticeably and the scenery grows more verdant, hinting at the thick forests surrounding this intriguing city by the sea.
