Baltic Bike Tours

New! Bike tour in Western Lithuania & Latvia (Klaipeda-Samogitia-Riga), 10 days, self-guided


Tour distances: cycling ~498 km /311 mi., by train ~1 hour

Cycling grade: We rate this trip as moderate level. Cycle routes mainly on roads with little traffic and cycle paths, a few stretches in Latvia are on main roads with more car traffic, especially on weekends (from the Lithuanian border to Liepaja, and a few stretches near Pavilosta and Tukums). You will enjoy cycling on separate cycle paths along the Lithuanian Baltic Coast from Klaipėda to Šventoji/Palanga and in Latvian towns of Liepaja and Jūrmala. A cycle path along the railway will lead you from Jūrmala to Riga if you decide to do it by bike instead of train. Routes range from 30 to 78 km (19-49 miles) each day. Bicycle route is flat.
