Stops are the capitals Riga, Tallinn and Stockholm, and you will also pass pretty seaside resorts such as Palanga, Pärnu and Haapsalu. From Stockholm you follow the Swedish coast to picturesque Ystad.

Tour character:

A (small) circumnavigation of the Baltic Sea is on the wish list of many motorcyclists. This tour is perfect for those with a tight time budget. Nevertheless the most important stations do not fall by the wayside. Riding is only possible on well constructed roads, so that even the longer stages are easy to master. On some days we offer alternative routings, which you can choose according to your taste. If you have more time, you can book extensions for Saaremaa or Gotland. Both islands offer great routes.

Tour itinerary:

Day 1: Arrival

Individual journey to Kiel, embarkation and departure (approx. 21.00 hrs) in the direction of the Baltic States. Overnight stay on board.

Day 2: Klaipeda

Arrival in Klaipeda (approx. 18.00) and opportunity to discover the old Memel on a tour. The Simon Dach Fountain with the Annie of Tharau on the Theaterplatz and the small half-timbered houses are worth a visit. Overnight stay in Klaipeda.

Day 3: Curonian Spit (approx. 100 km)

Ride to the Curonian Spit - over the spit road, through light forests, over gently undulating dune tops and again and again with a view of the lagoon, you will reach Nida (Nida). In Nida today, the Thomas Mann House on the Mother-in-law Hill and the old spa cemetery around the small church are particularly worth seeing. The cafés and restaurants along the promenade invite you to stop for a break. Maybe you will take a walk to the Parnid Dune before you ride back to Klaipeda. Overnight stay in Klaipeda.

Day 4: Klaipeda - Palanga - Kuldiga - Riga (about 350 km)

You ride via Palanga and Kuldiga to Riga. The route takes you for a part along the beautiful Lithuanian-Latvian coast.

Overnight stay in Riga.

Day 5: Riga - Gauja National Park - Pärnu (about 250 km)

The seaside resort is considered the "summer capital" of Estonia. Overnight stay in Pärnu.

Day 6: Pärnu - Haapsalu - Tallinn (about 220 and 260 km)

Next stop is Haapsalu. The health resort was extremely popular even in the time of the tsars. Worth seeing are the railway station, which was built especially for the reception of the tsar, and the ruins of the bishop's castle. Via a quiet side road, passing Padise with the worth seeing monastery ruins, you will reach Tallinn. The townscape is characterised by winding cobblestone alleys and pointed gabled merchants' houses - as befits an old Hanseatic town. The city wall and the massive fortified towers bear witness to Tallinn's defensiveness in earlier times. Overnight stay in Tallinn.
