Excursions

Bicycling – Latvia is quite flat which is ideal for bicycling excursions. www.bicycle.lt

Hiking – The low-lying national and regional parks are home to countless signposted paths.

Horse riding – There is no lack of stud farms or horse trails in nature parks and tourist regions.


Saunas

Saunas, called pirts, are an integral part of everyday life in Estonia and people go to them to bathe, relax and chat. An invitation to take part in this activity is an honour and it would be unseemly to refuse.


Water sports

Canoe, kayak, rafting – In summertime, the peaceful lakes and rivers are ideal for water sports. In April-May, after the snow has melted, the water is faster flowing.

Swimming – The Baltic Sea reaches between 16° and 22°C in summer. www.blueflag.org


Winter sports

Skiing, sledging, snowmobiles, horse-drawn sleighs, ice fishing, ice yachting, bobsleighing, and of course, ice hockey and skating.
