Travel

Although the ecotourism offer in Latvia is still under development, it is already possible to travel in Latvia while following the spirit of ecotourism and sustainable tourism.

Should you decide to take a tour in Riga, do not hesitate to use the services of Riga's public transport. Using trams, buses and trolleybuses will be an easy way to get about due to the e-ticket that functions in the public transportation. For those who want to see the city leisurely, there are also a number of bicycle rentals, including the "airBaltic" bike rental stands found in many places in the city centre.  

When in Riga, be sure you see the Art Nouveau heritage, as Riga is justly regarded as the metropolis of Art Nouveau (or Jugendstil) architecture. The district is located within an easy reach from the Old Town and the Central Market where one can buy ecological produce. A good idea for the warm season is to take a bike to the Open Air Museum showing the Latvian cultural heritage. Then there is also Pārdaugava, a neighbourhood on the left bank of the Daugava, featuring wooden architecture.  

If you fancy a bike tour outside the city and seeing the nature of Latvia, then explore the offer of one-day trips in the vicinity of Riga, or a number of longer bicycle tours. Aquatic tourism is also popular in Latvia, therefore, take a chance and go boating
