Are you thinking about visiting Latvia?

While this small northern country isn’t on most people’s radar yet, it should be. This Baltic state offered lots of surprises when we visited, and we ended up loving our time here. Yes, the country might not be big in size, but we found so many things to do in Latvia that we had a hard time choosing.

Therefore, we highly recommend that you take enough time when you visit this beautiful country. And to make things easier, we have put together a list of what to do in Latvia. We hope you’ll find them useful for planning your trip.

Latvia

When visiting Latvia, one of the best things to do is basing yourself in Riga and exploring the country on day trips. From here, you have the choice between seeing many different parts of Latvia. Do you want to visit the seaside in Jurmala? Or do you prefer strolling through the medieval town of Cesis?

Or are you expecting outdoor adventures, while also seeing a few castles along the way? Then you should head to Sigulda.

Here, you can hike through the Gauja National Park, explore caves and castles or seek out adrenaline rushes on the bobsleigh track. And the best part is that it only takes an hour to get here from Riga.…

What are the best things to do in Lithuania?

When we planned our trip to the Baltics, I spent a lot of research trying to find the best places to visit. For Lithuania, I already had a rough idea since I knew I wanted to see my great-great-grandmother’s hometown. And Vilnius, being the capital, seemed like an easy choice.

But for the rest? At that point, I didn’t know much about Lithuania, so I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. You’re probably in a similar situation, wondering where to go and how to spend your limited time. Fortunately, we’ve done all the research and travelled the country, so we can now share the highlights of Lithuania with you.

Are you looking for the best things to do in Riga?

When travelling to Riga, you can expect a stunning medieval Old Town, cobblestone streets, lots of history and delicious food. And the best part? Latvia’s capital hasn’t made it onto the radar of everyone yet, which means that you’ll find fewer crowds than in many Western European cities.

As Riga has a lot to offer, it can be challenging to choose what to do. We have tried and tested the highlights of Riga, so you don’t have to spend hours researching for yourself. Keep on reading, and you’ll learn everything about what to do in this fantastic city.…

Budget

One type of post we both find very useful is budget posts. When trying to figure out how much money we need to save for a trip, it’s helpful to see how much other travellers have spent. That’s also why we keep a detailed record of our expenses – we want to know how expensive different countries are.

The same applied when we went to the Baltics. We wrote down every single cent we spent. And now we’d like to share this budget with you. Hopefully, it will help you plan your own trip.

We’ll also be sharing lots of great advice on how to save money, so you don’t have to break your bank for travelling to the Baltics.…
