The best time to visit Latvia tends to be during spring and summer, from around April to September. Visitors can expect fine weather for exploring the capital, hiking in national parks and spending time at the beach. Weather can change unexpectedly at any time however, so it is best to also pack a waterproof jacket just in case.
Autumn, though chilly, can bring some beautiful scenes with the changing colours of the leaves. Winter brings quite low temperatures, though Riga can still be explored at this time – expect less tourists and frosty nights.
