One of our most popular tours, The Jurmala Beach Cruise is the perfect way to spend a warm sunny day in Latvia. Or for the brave we even ride out during cooler spring and autumn days!
Starting in Riga, we’ll pass over the Daugava river and follow the rail line to reach the seaside city of Jurmala. The idea of our tour is to show the city of Riga and her suburbs as we pass out into open green lands before arriving in Jurmala. Along the way we’ll ride through Riga’s suburbs, past beautifully renovated wooden houses and soviet era blocks of flats, and through the fields and forests separating Riga from Jurmala.
The bicycle path to Riga is a fun ride in itself. It is around 20km in one direction, flat, smooth and very easy going for most cyclists. We use the designated Riga to Jurmala bicycle path that in the summer fills with locals and tourists alike.
Jurmala is a historic element of Latvia’s makeup. Developed after the Napoleonic war as a resting places for retried soldiers, it soon became connected to the city of Riga by train. By the turn of the 20th century this was one of the most bustling beach resorts in the region. By the Soviet era, one could not move on the beaches during the summer months. Today it has a some what different feel. Come and see for yourself.
Once there you’re free to explore the wooden architecture and tree-lined streets, laze on the beach, take a dip in Baltic sea and grab some refreshments from a café in the bustling city centre before taking the train or riding back to Riga.
This is the perfect tour for those who want a more relaxing experience. The tour takes approx. 5 hours. Bikes and guide are included, as well as train tickets if required.
