This guidebook offers practical advice and infor- mation which you can take along on your travels. It is meant for people who are interested in the environ- ment and various cultural and historical monuments. It is also intended for active tourists who like hiking, bi- king, boating or cross-country skiing. Public transpor- tation services will not always deliver you to the de- sired locations quickly and conveniently, so we have also given though to those readers who drive their own cars. The guide covers the most important information about all of the national parks in the Baltic States (14 in all), along with their most important environmental, cultural and historical values, as well as their most in- teresting points of interest. The authors have attached a map of each national park, along with GPS co-ordi- nates for the most interesting destinations.
Information can become out of date very quickly, and many things can change, so before you set off on your trip, we suggest that you should contact the visi- tor or tourism information centre of the relevant park. The author of this guidebook has personally visited all of the national parks and the destinations cited therein, doing so on a regular basis over the past 20 years. All of the routes which are listed have been examined and checked out.
