When to Visit

May, June, September, early October

Avoid the summertime crowds and the rainiest months of the year when you visit the Baltics in late spring or early fall. Be sure to pack a sweater and an umbrella, but you’ll likely experience crisp, clear weather to explore the Baltic countries’ stunning landscapes! Foodies will love visiting Estonia in June for Grillfest, a two-day festival with 300 of the country’s best caterers feeding the crowds in Pärnu. 


About the Baltics

Positioned around the Baltic Sea, Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia entice travelers with gorgeous beaches and stunning scenery. In Latvia, visit the fairytale city of Riga or get out in the country to go trekking in a bog, explore Lithuania’s Trakai Island Castle in the middle of Lake Galvė, and spot brown bears as you hang out in an Estonian hide. Pack your bags and head for the Baltics– you’re in for a delightful surprise!
