The afternoon is free for guests to make their own discoveries. Overnight stay in a hotel in Riga.
Day 7: Riga - Gauja National Park - Rummu - Tallinn

Back to nature again. Your photo tour will first take you to Sigulda – a place that is popular not only because of its location in a charming region, but also because of the castles of the Teutonic Knights that are still standing today.
