DETAILED ITINERARY

Day 1: Celebrate Midsummer in Latvia

You will be surprised to know that the most popular annual festival of Latvia isn’t actually New Year or Christmas rather it’s the summer solstice. Local people also call it J? diminish & L?go. Ask any local and they will tell you that one of the best things to do with all Latvia vacation packages is a celebration of L?go. This Pagan tradition has been followed in the country for around the last thousand years. As per tradition, people keep awake for the entire night, waiting for the sun (for greeting), there are bonfires & more interesting activities that are mostly organized in parks. You will love watching out people dancing, eating, jumping around, and altogether having good times. In Latvia, the Midsummer is organized every year on the 23rd & 24th of June. Spend these two days with one of the local’s homes to get that real feel. In the other half of the day (24th) get back to your hotel and catch up some rest to make sure that you are all prepared for the next day visit to the Ragaciems and getting around trying freshly smoked fish. 

Day 2: Visit Ragaciems and Try Freshly Smoked Fish

Ragaciems, the popular fishermen village is the perfect place for you, if you want to try some real Latvian freshly smoked fish. There are plenty of local cafes and hotels, where you can go and order as per your choice. Also, if you want, you can buy some and go to a place you want to enjoy a picnic. There are many other fishing villages on the coast! Ragaciems is the most sought after because it’s conveniently connected to the capital city, Riga. The other two important fishing villages in Latvia where you can find amazing freshly cooked fish are Bigaunciems and Lapmezciems. If you are left with some time, you can visit these two enchanting places. 

Day 3 to 6: Go on a Coastal Hike

Have you ever been on a coastal hike? This is the perfect time to get that wish ticked off from your list. The best ever thing that you will see in Latvia is its natural beauty. With a coastline spanning over 500 km, you need around a week to explore it all, but with such Latvia vacation packages where there are other things to do, four days are enough. Enjoying a coastal hiking tour is one of the top things to do in Latvia. Here are some of the top hiking trails in Latvia that you will enjoy walking through in these four days.
