Start in Vilnius and end in Tallinn, the trip Treasures Of The Baltic By Bike is a self-guided bicycle tour that takes 11 days. You will be touring through Kaunas, Tallinn, Vilnius and 3 other destinations in Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania. Treasures Of The Baltic By Bike is a trip which will include accommodation in hotels, transport, meals and others. Please check the package includes section for more details.

Explore the contrasting cultures and natural landscapes along the Baltic coastline connecting Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia. While Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia share the same Baltic coastline, the contrasting unique characters of these three countries will become evident as you follow this incredibly scenic cycling route from Vilnius to Tallinn. From the three capitals - Vilnius, Riga and Tallinn - to the many small villages that have changed little over time, this guided cycling experience along low traffic roads and dedicated cycle paths will showcase the diverse cultures, World Heritage sites and mainly flat landscapes that make travelling in this region so different to anywhere else in Europe. Discover the island castle at Trakai, enter the previously off-limits Curonian Spit, a wild pre-historic sand dune peninsula, and marvel at the pilgrimage sight of thousands of crosses of every size and design imaginable at the Hill of Crosses in northern Lithuania. Crossing into Latvia, dip your toes in the Baltic Sea at the white sandy beaches of Jurmula and on the island of Saaremaa, visit Latvia's oldest Church and pay homage at a bicycle museum before heading into Estonia. We'll stop at Saaremaa, famous for its Bishop's Castle, before reaching the Estonian capital of Tallinn, where the trip concludes.

“A great way to see 3 countries and 3 capitals. Our guide Romas was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic and so we learnt a huge amount about the culture, history and politics of this region. Hotels were of a very good standard and variety in type.”

“Our guide was amazing! His depth of knowledge, (history, geography, political), and his diplomatic way of communicating, was really appreciated. He was a real gem! Our bus driver/bike mechanic was also a really great guy, such a talented driver and very helpful wherever possible. This was our first guided bike trip (we always travel independently) and it was a wonderful experience! We would have appreciated longer biking days (more kilometers) but realize that including the bus travel required per day that this may not be possible. The bus travel between areas mixed with bike travel was a very good way of seeing 3 countries in a limited time. The equipment was really good, all new bikes and bags which was much appreciated. The mix of provided meals and finding our own restaurants was perfect. It was nice to explore and find unique places to eat, or just buy something in the market and have a picnic meal. Thanks for providing a great trip!”
