Pay a visit to the capital Riga. The historic part’s architecture references the city’s history, including wooden houses that have existed for several centuries and churches that are as old as the city itself.
Visit the health resort Jurmala at the sea. Here, you can swim, go on long walks on the beach and undertake extensive bike tours through the city’s pine forests.
Taste local specialties like smoked sausage (žaveta desa). In general, Latvian food is hearty and often contains fish or meat.
Go on a bike tour through Riga and visit the polished, green parts of the city as well as the less developed areas to get a feel for the city.
Cycle along the Eurovelo route 10 along Latvia’s coast. The route passes through several towns and showcases the country’s beautiful landscape. Although the route is fairly flat, you should consider that not all of it is asphalted and also consists of gravel and sand, as the route isn’t finished yet. There also aren’t any signs in some parts.
Winter starts in the middle of December and lasts until the middle of May. During this time, the days are fairly short and a constant snow cover is mostly guaranteed. This period of time is thus not suitable for a cycling holiday.
