Latvia Travel Guide
Latvia is an incredible place and why it is becoming one of the most popular areas of Europe. With impressive castle ruins, golden beaches and a great range of shops and restaurants, Latvia is definitely somewhere to explore.
Latvia is known for its many forests that cover almost half of the country and where you can find a huge variety of local wildlife. In eastern Latvia, you will find vast lakes and deep river valleys. Throughout the country, you will find an abundance of beautiful rivers, the largest being the Daugava. The best time to go is from June to mid-September, in the Latvian summertime, when the weather is warm and the best local produce is available. During October and November, there are very little hours of daylight, and January and February are typically the coldest months.
