The tour takes you to the west of Estonia and its romantic islands of Hiiumaa, Saaremaa and Muhu. Cycle along the coast of Liivi Bay to the summer resort of Pärnu. Many beautiful roads with hardly any traffic await you, secluded beaches in a varied landscape, friendly people and lots of unspoiled nature. A dream of the north!
The road takes you along the coast, floodplains and riverside forests to Sigulda and the famous Gauija National Park. The train takes you the last stretch to the Latvian capital Riga.
The route leads, as far as possible, on smaller roads. It shows you the best that Estonia and Latvia have to offer – idyllic little villages with stone walls and thatched roofs as well as romantic summer houses in Haapsalu, Kuressaare and Pärnu, windmills in Angla, natural wonders in Kaali, friendly people and, of course, the Baltic Sea with its beaches, which are particularly beautiful in the Baltic States.
The two Baltic countries are very similar in many respects. They share a long common history, traditions and the vastness of nature. But they differ in a thousand colorful details from step to step: each country has its own distinctive cultural traditions and its own historical heritage.
Ferries will take you from one island to another. And finally, you can feel the unique island atmosphere – here the clocks seem to go a little slower, the islanders are never in a hurry.
Estonia offers plenty of space and air to breathe! Even in high summer you will always find enough space for yourself on the long sandy beaches.
You will stay in small country hotels, guest houses or even in old farms that have been converted into tourist farms. Everywhere you will enjoy friendly service and local cuisine. In Tallinn, stay within walking distance of the Old Town in a 3*** or 4**** hotel. All accommodations are very lovingly and individually furnished.
We will be happy to make you an offer for an extra night for each place of accommodation, both in Tallinn and for the entire bike tour.
If you wish, you can also interrupt daily stages with an overnight stay and thus shorten one or the other stage a little. Feel free to contact us!
