You will be traveling through Klaipeda, Riga, Pavilosta and 4 other destinations in lithuania and Latvia. "Latvia And Lithuania Cycle Explorer" is a private tour which includes accommodation, transport, meals and others. Please see the package includes section for further details.

Learn about Latvia and Lithuania's rich history as you explore the changing landscapes of the Baltic coastline. Travellers eager to experience a completely different side of Europe will revel in the experiences offered by the Baltic countries of Latvia and Lithuania. While they share borders and a coastline, culturally both countries are very different. Cycling through their most beautiful landscapes, where farmers still use a horse and carriage, to discover hidden treasures is made even more pleasurable by bike thanks to the flat landscapes and this superb cycle route following cycle paths and low traffic roads. The trip begins in Klaipeda from where we follow the stunning Baltic coastline into Latvia. As you cycle through the ever changing landscape you'll encounter many small villages, where the way of life has changed little, many unspoilt beaches, waterfalls, sand caves and a cultural heritage showcased through the many Old Towns, castles and manor houses that bring to life the folklore and legends of these intriguing countries. The tour concludes in the cosmopolitan Hanseatic port of Riga, where you will re-enter modern life after a fabulous ride back through time.
