Ferries from Finland to Latvia

About Finland:

Finland is a Nordic country in northeast Europe, famous for white summer nights and countless pristine lakes.

It offers amazing landscapes year-round, with many activities to suit every season. There are excellent ski resorts, bustling cities and incredible festivals throughout the summer months. The night skies are blessed with spectacular displays of the Northern Lights, too, making it one of Europe’s most popular countries.

Finally, after a day of exploring the coniferous forests and drinking in the crisp Finnish air, why not relax in one of the nation’s estimated two million saunas?

Travelling by ferry is a popular mode of transport in Finland, as there are numerous routes operated by excellent ferry companies with luxurious vessels. The Finnish ports are good departure points for the surrounding Scandinavian nations and mainland Europe, so there’s no shortage of sailing options.

About Latvia:

Latvia is a Baltic Nation in northern Europe, sandwiched between Estonia to the north and Lithuania to the south.

With its turbulent Soviet rule now in the distant past, Latvia has thrived as one of Europe’s up and coming tourist destinations. Seemingly endless nature makes up the majority of the landscape, with unspoilt forests and sparkling lakes offering mouth-watering backdrops to any hike or bike ride.

Latvia’s capital and primary cultural attraction, Riga is a cosmopolitan, cobblestoned city with a UNESCO World Heritage Site decorated old town. Straddling the Daugava River, it offers a mix of historical splendour and contemporary entertainment, boasting some excellent nightclubs alongside some wonderful, wooden architecture.

For a relatively small country, Latvia has a few ports along its five hundred kilometre coastline, so it’s easy to reach by ferry. Across the Baltic Sea, there are numerous routes from countries in northern Europe and Scandinavia.
