Overview

Traveling privately on a custom itinerary means flexibility – flexibility to immerse yourself in your own exclusive experience, to craft an itinerary around your interests, and to travel when it’s right for you.

Want to go on a private tour of a linen workshop with a master who explains the cultivation and processing of flax, demonstrates the spinning of thread, and weaves the finished linen fabric? How about a tour behind the scenes at the Riga Opera House? Need suggestions?

To get started planning a Latvia itinerary, take a look at our suggested Private Journey to the region, Essential Baltics, or read more about how to design your own trip.

Also keep in mind that you can customize any of our small group tours to match your preferred dates of travel. Get in touch, we’re here to help.

Signature Experiences

Below are just a few examples of the signature experiences that MIR can arrange for you in Latvia. Let them be a source of inspiration, then get in touch with one of our Private Journey Specialists to craft an itinerary uniquely suited to your travel goals, budget, and style.

  • Head underground deep beneath Ligatne Sanatorium into a once-secret Soviet bunker, a well-stocked hideaway for top Soviet military and political elite in case of nuclear attack.
  • Step inside a Riga store creating and selling chocolates since 1870, and learn to make – and eat – your own rich Latvian chocolate truffles from a master chocolate artisan.
  • Enjoy an evening of opera at a Riga theater, where the surroundings are as rich and spine-tingling as the performance itself.
  • Board a boat for a leisure sunset cruise on Riga Canal, admiring historic sights and Old Town architecture, sipping sparkling wine, and sampling snacks along the way.

Traveler Reviews

  • "We learned a lot about Latvian history, including its tradition of song poems. Enjoyed the stop at Sigulda, the sculpture park, the castle ruins, the beautiful hills."
