Country Holidays

Our team

We are a professional rural tourism association established in 1993 and currentlywe have some 330 members – owners of rural companies all over Latvia. We are members of Eurogites, the European Federation for Rural Tourism.
Baltic Country Holidays grew out of the Latvian Country Tourism Association in 1998 and is a small incoming operator. All our staff are passionate outdoor and nature enthusiasts. All our routes and offers are tried and tested by our people. We know personally all our suppliers and have established great relationships with them during many years of cooperation. The company is focussed on small businesses providing a personal touch and detailed local expertise. Importantly, we work with some of the best Latvian birdwatching and nature experts in Latvia. Should you need advice when planning your holidays in the Latvian, Lithuanian or Estonian countryside, ring us up, write us or visit our office in Riga. Should you so desire, we will be happy to design tour routes for individual travellers and small groups – travel by bicycle, boat or bus, hiking, bird-watching, visits to craftsmen and designers, etc.  Various guidebooks and maps are also available.
