Baltic Bike Tours

Cycling the Baltic States with three capital cities (Tallinn - Riga - Vilnius), National Parks of Lahemaa, Gauja and the Curonian Spit



Tour distances: cycling ~336 km/210 miles or ~344 km/~215 mi., by minibus ~1051 km/657 mi., by boat/ferry ~14 km/9 mi.

Cycling grade: We rate this trip as Moderate one. Daily biking routes mainly on low traffic roads and cycle paths range from 20 to 57 km (13-36 miles) each day with a possibility for faster riders to cycle more kilometres on some days like Day 2 (more detours on a circular route in Lahemaa national park), Day 3 (extra distance towards Tartu) and Day 6 (exploring Jurmala Resort). The terrain is varied and rolling with a few gradual hills on some riding days (a few steep ups and downs in Otepää region, the Gauja River valley and on the Curonian Spit) and dead flat most of the tour. The tour covers all three Baltic States and therefore it includes a few long minibus transfers between the most interesting cycling destinations and the capital cities. Our walking sightseeing tours in the capital old towns are along cobbled streets.

Arrival / Departure: Arrive in Tallinn (Estonia) and depart from Vilnius or Kaunas (100 km from Vilnius). For more information about flights, see websites:

Featuring the National Park Lahemaa, which is one of the last unspoiled regions of the Baltic coast, Otepää Lakeland – the so-called “Estonian Switzerland" and the beautiful Gauja River valleys.

Our driver will transport your luggage every day to the next hotel. If you have a breakdown, then our driver will take care of everything for you.
