Description

3 Nights Riga
2 Nights Vilnius
2 Nights Tallinn

Not many multi centre holidays encompass enchanting scenery, fairytale castles, riverside gems and an Art Nouveau quirk. With 7 nights to explore the Baltics’ architectural gems, this trio itinerary brings you the best from three of the region’s most beautiful cities. From the twinkling turret sunsets that give Disney a run for its money, to the restaurants putting Michelin to shame, your Baltic exploration is about to begin.

Itinerary

UK- Riga (3 Nights): You’ll fly direct from the UK to Latvia’s capital of Riga, where we’ll transfer you to your chosen hotel. Colourful, deeply traditional, yet urban all at once, riverside Riga feels like stepping into a painting (except you can touch). Over 800 Art Nouveau buildings showcasing the city’s unique Jugendstil architecture fill the quaint Old Town, where everything can be reached on foot in less than a mile. Doorways with mythological facades take on medieval marvels with the House of Blackheads and steepled St. Peter’s Church. Even the tourist office near Freedom Street is a flamboyant 14th-century guildhall. Patio cafes, galleries and monuments fill Riga’s picturesque squares, where you can sample Latvijas Balzams liqueurs after some traditional Pelmeni dumplings.

Riga- Vilnius (2 Nights): Replacing medieval charm with a bohemian beat, you’ll head by bus to the Lithuanian capital of Vilnius for two nights of baroque backdrops, disruptive street art and the best craft beer this side of Bruges. Wander the Old Town for the 15th and 16th-century Gate of Dawn and brick Gediminas’ Tower, take in breathtaking panoramas from the Three Crosses Monument and feel the warmth from red-tiled rooftops that blaze at dusk. It’s worth the short trip to the stillwater-set Trakai Island Castle (where lake paddle-boarding and swimming are popular in summer). It’s also worth exploring the UNESCO World Heritage Site and self-proclaimed republic of Užupis; the home of progressive creatives. Vilnius’ mummified saints bring a stillness to the city’s gleaming cathedrals and monuments, but there’s plenty of life from shaded restaurant terraces, vibrant small shops and the epic Halle covered market. Over a dozen art galleries are all close together, so you can really pack in the culture with two nights here.

Vilnius- Tallinn (2 Nights): You will leave Vilnius by bus, travelling past rolling hills that stretch north towards your final destination: the Estonian capital of Tallinn. Alluring, photogenic and filled with an abundance of colourful streetscapes and nobleman’s houses, Tallinn blends medieval tranquility with urban modernism. Unwind to your heart’s content in your hotel, but make the most of this walled city’s cobbled Toompea hill, where sunny alleys bounce pink and yellow paints fronting traditional architecture. Step into the merchant past at the Old City’s Town Square and get a feel of Russian influence from the onion-domed Alexander Nevsky Cathedral. The woodwork structures of the Kalamaja district make for a real contrast, and you’ll be surprised at the cosmopolitan beach offerings that turn even more vibrant with Tallinn’s refined nightlife scene. Anyone with a sweet tooth should also make a beeline for the Rotermann Quarter’s Kalev Chocolate Shop, where artisan makers can be watched first-hand. It’s amazing how many Bastion passages, secret alleys and fresh-caught fish dishes you can pack into two nights- and with this multi centre holiday, how much culture you’ll have packed into under 8 days.

Tallinn- UKOnce you’re packed for your return, we’ll meet you at your hotel and transfer you for your direct flight back to the UK.
