Travel around Latvia

If you're planning to trave laround Latvia then I suggest following my around the Latvia route which I completed in the summer of 2021. The route is mainly gravel roads and doesn't go strictly near the border but from time to time takes you more inland to see more interesting things.

The route is perfects for beginners and advanced motorcycle riders. You will need tires that can handle gravel roads and sands but there are some parts where you go on asphalt as well, so don't put on knobbies. Something that is 60/40 road and offroad will do just fine.

Take with you everything for camping outside but don't worry, the route has marked places where you can stay for the night indoors as well. There are many marked places for meals and beverages so be sure to stop by and taste the local food. Since there are many places marked on the map along the border then you can choose for yourself where you want to go and what to see. For more description about the place you can either Google it or open the location in Google maps.


Ja esi nolēmis apceļot apkārt Latvijai vairākās dienās, tad noteikti noderēs mana apLatvijas brauciena sastādītā Google maps karte ar vairākiem atzīmētiem interešu punktiem - baznīcas, pieminekļi, skatu torņi, muižas, dabas objekti, ainavas, kafejnīcas, brūži un vēl daudz kas cits.

Google maps kartē ir atzīmēti tikai interešu punkti, jo maršrutu varēsi sastādīt pats atkarībā no sava transportlīdzekļa. Savukārt GPX fails būs piemērots tiem, kas vēlas apbraukt apkārt Latvijai ar Enduro tipa motociklu, jo maršrutā ir daudz grants ceļi, meža ceļi un pat bezceļi.

IMPORTANT! You will need a permint to travel around the border area. Please head to Latvian Border Control website and fill out the application. They usually review it withing 1 to 2 weeks, so don't leave it for the last momemnt. This permit is needed when you're traveling near Russian and Belarus border area. When you get the permit and travel along the border then it's best to call the nearest border patrol and let them know that you're in the area and plan on riding near the border. This will save unescessary time wasted reviewing your identity on the spot both you and the patrol.

I wish you the best on your journey! If you find a sticker with OUTDURO logo then make sure to take a picture, post it on social media and tag us. If you do this then there's a little surprise gift for you!
