Tour Description

Bicycle tours in Riga can be a real eye opener and  a discovery. Our  city has so much more than the Old Town to offer. Riga is very different depending in which part of the city you are. We have 3 different routes for you to choose from, all created to show Real Riga sort to speak. The longer we will cycle the more locals and less visitors we will see. 

Tours will be informative, relaxed and fun:)

All of our tour guides have great experience in doing bicycle tours in Riga and are ready to take you on this journey!

The tour starts in our office in Old Riga at Pils iela 14 (next to Grand Palace hotel) where firstly we brief you on cycling rules in Riga! You can choose the bikes that suit you best – size, ATB, touring etc, maybe e-bike (+7 EUR). We get, reflective vests, helmets (optional), and of we go!

Here are the descriptions of routes.

Moscow Suburbs Tour

This area developed in the 16th, 17th centuries as one of first suburbs of Riga.

It was inhabited by different nationalities – Russians, Jewish and Latvians, therefore it was very multicultural.

Moscow suburbs lies along the right bank of river Daugava and was not only used as docking port for various goods coming from the east but also had ship building companies, saw mills, and other businesses.

During World War Two here where created 2 Jewish Ghettos. 

On our way memorials, oldest public parks in Riga and beautiful wooden architecture!

This part of Riga has the ruff lineament and special aura around it! So join us to explore this special part of Riga.

New Riga City Tour

Riga is divided two parts, opposite Old Riga, on the left bank of Daugava, lies Pārdaugava or simply – over the Daugava.

From the 17th century it was common for wealthy German landlords to built manors and spend summers here. Expansion of this part really sped up when the first bridge was built thus connecting both parts of Riga.

Because this part of Riga was more quiet and peaceful it was also place for many writers, poets and painters to seek inspiration.

On our way we will see both World War monuments and discuss Soviet and Nazi occupations of Latvia.

We will also cycle around Kipsala island, that got it`s name from fisherman Kipis. This island will amaze you with Old wooden buildings, in which many fisherman used to live in the 18th and 19th centuries.

Riga Center Tour

Central part of Riga, developed when old defense bastions were taken down in 1863.  When the job was done we firstly created boulevard circle. But that was only beginning… industrial revolution and growth of  population generated building of 800 Art Nouveau apartment houses.

On our way we will see Freedom monument, Orthodox cathedral, Dailes theater (the first professional Latvian theater), Laima chocolate factory, football and hockey stadiums.

We will see places of the old KGB headquarters and execution spots. At the end of the tour we will hit the special Andrejosta port.

Join us to explore Center of Riga.
