Discover the captivating beauty of the Baltics on a 10-day journey that takes in the region’s charming cities, hearty cuisine, and lesser-known treasures. Immerse yourself in the culture and history of atmospheric cities where you’ll explore medieval fortifications, learn how to cook famous national dishes and soak up the lively atmosphere of the Old Towns. Whether you’re chatting with cider makers, walking in a national park or wandering down cobblestone lanes, there is much to enjoy here and plenty of surprises along the way traversing three countries whose national sport is mushroom picking. If you enjoy lesser known destinations, long summer nights, and want to do more than just see the sights, this immersive tour is calling your name.

A well paced and interesting trip to a region I knew little about. Great accommodation, interesting inclusions and the opportunity to chase personal interests in the generous free times. Leisurely breakfast times and a private minibus meant we were efficient with our use of time and no long days of travelling. Historically and culturally new and enlightening. Loved It.

The Baltics Premium tour provided invaluable insights into the Baltics both in nature and its history. Highly worth doing and great value for money.

This trip was absolutely phenomenal!! Most of the activities included were absolutely fantastic and something I would have wanted to do if I had designed a trip myself. Having a guide who lived in one of the countries we visited and was intimately knowledgeable about all the areas we travelled to was immeasurably helpful. The balance between activities and free time was great and I liked how the free time always came after a walking tour so you knew a little of the last of the land first. I also appreciated how travel chunks were broken up so we weren't traveling for a ridiculously long time. Meals and accommodations were fantastic and all the beaches were very lovely.

The Baltics are a region that absolutely should be explored. The Intrepid trip allowed me to learn about the history of the region, while also learning about and experiencing life there today. Highly recommend!
