Take a day trip from Riga to Rundāle Palace and Hill of Crosses while learning about the history and people of two countries. Our knowledgeable local guides take a small group, maximum of 8 people, for a fun filled 7 hour road trip through Latvia and Lithuania.

Be amazed by the Rundāle Palace that is considered the grandest stately home in the Baltics and a true gem of Baroque architecture and of South-Latvian countryside. After our tour guide shares the stories behind the Palace you'll be provided with tickets that give you access to the Palace's exhibitions as well as the access to the French Garden for you to enjoy and explore.

After exploring the Rundāle Palace we'll head off towards Lithuania. On the way to Hill Of Crosses we’ll make a stop for lunch so that you can try some of the local cuisine. Kindly let our guides know if you have any special dietary needs that we should take in account. Location of the lunch is subject to availability and the meal is not included in the price of the tour.

After trying out what the local cuisine has to offer in Lithuania - we’ll visit the Hill of Crosses that is a famous pilgrimage destination and a site of resistance against Soviet occupation, where people not only from Lithuania have put crosses for couple centuries, witnesses faithfulness and trust of a Christian community to Christ and his Cross. This is an expression of a spontaneous religiousness of the people, and is a symbol not of grief and death but of Faith, Love and Sacrifice.

After exploring the Hill of Crosses we'll get back into the van and head off back to Riga where the tour will be finished. Where our mutual adventure will be finished and your evening adventure will begin.
