The itinerary of EuroVelo 13 in Latvia is over 550km and follows the sea coast as closely as possible from the Estonian border (Ainaži) to the Lithuanian (Nida). Visitors will enjoy Latvia’s rich natural landscape of which 56% is covered by forest. Riga, the largest city in the Baltic States, offers a good counter-balance to the wilderness of its countryside. The route also visits Ventspils, which boasts the most developed cycling infrastructure in Latvia, whilst Liepāja and Karosta are very fitting destinations for the Iron Curtain Trail route thanks to their rich and well preserved Soviet military heritage.
