The Baltic States consist of three countries of Europe – Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia and are often regarded geografically, historically and culturally as one region. They were once part of the Soviet Union, but they were among the first to break away in 1990—91.

Geographically, the three Baltic States have much in common. Forests and lakes cover a vast amount of the countryside; there are 2,800 lakes in Lithuania alone, many of them glacial. This landscape defines the roads of the region: winding, going up and down in hilly areas and straight to the horizon in the lowlands closer to the sea.

The region is very historical, with ancient castles and hill forts, some dating back to the 1200s. Region was a scenery of long confrontation between local people and the Teutonic Knights in medieval ages and between western and eastern European empires in the 16-20 centuries. The culture of the region combines local traditions with Polish, Russian, German and Scandinavian influences.

All three Baltic States are members of European Union (since 2004) and Schengen area (since 2007).

Day 2, Sunday

After lunch – city tour in Old Vilnius. Accommodation in the same hotel.

Day 3, Monday

The route of the second day's travel leads us to the West, to the shore of the Baltic sea. We will ride a winding road between hills and lakes, reach Kaunas, and after lunch we continue on the road in the valley of Neman.
In the evening we will reach the guesthouse of Arūnas the Hunter. National Lithuanian cuisine and homemade wine from the neighboring winery will be a nice accent of this day.

Day 4, Tuesday

This day start with a ride to the Ventės Cap, where a magnificуnt view on the Curonian spit, one of the most impressive natural sites in the world, opens. Centuries of common efforts of the wind, the stream of the Neman and the people living here resulted in a very special landscape combining woods, sand dunes and water, not to mention the endless sky above. On our way we visit a village named Mingė, where the main street is the river and the main vehicle is a boat. After that we arrive in Klaipeda and have lunch in the Old town. After thet we will ride to the forests, hiding the Soviet nuclear missile base. A former one, now converted to a unique Cold War museum. Finally, we return to our guesthouse.

Day 5, Wednesday

We will spend the whole day on the road. We start heading north along the seashore and reach Liepaja, the second biggest seaport in Latvija. After a coffee break, we will continue along the seashore to the Kolka cape, turn east and a scenic road will bring us to a famous sea resort Jurmala. We pass Riga, the capital of Latvia, crossing the Daugava river along a famous cable-stayed bridge, and end our day in a guesthouse near medieval Sigulda, in a small town which stands on the hills above the Gauja river. Accomodation in a 3* hotel.

Day 6, Thursday

Today we explore area of Sigulda, which is called "Livonian Switzerland" for it high hills and deep valleys. Our transport will be electrical tram, which will take us to many interesting sites of the area. Sigulda was founded at the beginning of the 13th century by Livonian knights. Now Sigulda is famous for its winter-sports center, especially bobsleigh. Latvian bobsleigh teams training here win high places at every winter Olympics. We will also visit the Turaida castle founded by Livonian Order, then a sand cave, where the walls are covered with inscriptions; the oldest of them dates back to the 17th century (the date is written, you’ll have to find it yourself, no prompting!) We will also hear a local tragic love story of Turaida Rose, a young beauty that was killed in this cave in 1620. Accommodation in the same hotel.

Day 7, Friday

We leave Sigulda early in the morning and proceed to the North, making a short stop in Cesis to see the castle founded in 1208, which served as a residence of the Livonian Order's Master for about 300 years; then we pass Valga/Valka, a small town divided by the border into Latvian and Estonian parts (imagine, how it looked like before Schengen!) and University town of Tartu, second largest in Estonia. Finally, we arrive at our hotel in Tallinn, check in in the 3* hotel in Tallinn's old town. Then we will take a walk in the medieval Old city and climb the tower of St. Olaf's church, once the highest building in the world.

Day 8, Saturday

We start the engines and hit the road to the Estonian islands. On the way we will visit the medieval castle of Haapsalu. The ferry will take us to the island of Muhu with its famous ethnographical museum. Then we ride across a dam to Saaremaa and reach Kuressaare, “the capital" of the island area of Estonia. Accomodation in a 4* hotel.

Day 9, Sunday

Saaremaa is the biggest one of three big Estonian islands (there are another 1421 smaller ones). Its landscape still shows the signs of the times when pagan tribes of Livs and Ests fought against the Livonian knights in an attempt to keep their freedom, land and religion. That’s why the medieval churches of Saaremaa often look like small castles rather than houses of prayer. Another attraction here is the beautiful and diverse nature of the island. Picturesque landscapes will follow us everywhere we go. Of course, such sightseeings as a meteorite crater and windmills' museum are visited on this day.
Traditionally on this day the group is seeking a message, which was left on the island by the previous group. Guests get a map and a encoded description of the place where the message is hidden and go without a guide. The group meets the guide after the message was found and leaves its own message to the next group.

Day 10, Monday

We leave Saaremaa and go to Riga. In Pärnu we have lunch and start moving south along the scenic Via Baltica – one of the main European routes connecting Warsaw in the Southwest to Helsinki in the Northeast. Riding takes about 6 hours, so in the afternoon we’ll have already reached Riga. The biggest city of the Baltic States, the capital of modern Latvia, a free, bohemian and artistic city during the Soviet rule, the most developing city of Russian Empire, the capital of the lands which belonged to Livonian Brothers of the Sword in the Middle Ages, it combines a medieval old town, endless Art Nouveau blocks and a modern city of wide avenues, skyscrapers and shopping malls.

Day 11, Tuesday

The last day of our tour we will start with visit to Riga's Motormuseum, famous for its unique collection of cars and motorcycles. Then we will continue to Vilnius, using local roads with little traffic. Another accent of the day: we will ride the famous "Berzhinka", the road which was used as rally special stage. Accommodation in a 4* hotel in the center of Vilnius.

Day 12, Wednesday

Departure. Depending upon the departure time we can organize some sightseeing activities in Vilnius and around.

Cruising speed is about 90-110 km/h, going down to 60-80 km/h on local winding roads. Average day distance is about 200-350 km (exception Day 5, distance about 550 km, can be shortened on the request of the group). Rainy weather and side wind is possible.
