When to fly

The best time to book a cheap flight to Riga, weather-wise, is in the spring (March to May), before the humidity sets in, but while temperatures are still pleasant in the teens. This shoulder season is another popular period, as temperatures are still comfortable and rainfall is at a minimum. 

The summer months, from June through August, brings a mixed batch of weather. Heat and humidity hit the city without reserve. Temperatures rest in the low 20s most of the season and warm, sunny days are supplemented almost constantly by rainy ones. If you like the warmer weather and don’t mind dodging a few spots of rain then this would be the ideal time to visit. This is also the peak season, so flights to Riga and accommodation may be more expensive.

Autumn in Riga is a dreary time and lead up to winter. From September to November the temperature plummets to around 10 degrees and there is quite a bit of rain. This is possibly the worst time to visit due to the weather conditions, although this may be the best time to get cheap flight and accommodation deal. If you do happen to take advantage of possible travel deals, then the Riga Restaurant Week is a real treat for foodies. During October locals and visitors have the chance to taste the best of the season’s products, prepared by highly experienced chefs at a range of restaurants across the city, at discounted prices.

Cold temperatures move in during the winter, from December to February, but this is also the driest time of year so rain and snow are much less common. While it may not be raining, the temperatures still call for warm clothing and outerwear, so if you book a holiday in Riga during this time, remember to think before you pack. As this is the off season, you may be able to find cheap flights to Riga and better hotel rates. If your trip coincides with New Year’s Eve, be sure to head down to the Embankment to watch performances from Latvian artists and fireworks.

Why visit?

Somewhere among its historic old quarter, sprawling parks, and funky art nouveau architecture, you realise what this beautiful city is all about. As you step off your flight to Riga, attempting to truly comprehend its nature in the first breath is impossible. 

In all its modesty, Riga is best experienced little by little, alleyway by alleyway, encountering one piece at a time, and acquiring an understanding as you go. Settled along the Daugava River this quaint little city is filled to the brim with bumpy cobble stone streets, tall steeples, and winding turrets. But don’t let its cute appearance fool you – when the sun sets, this place knows how to do nightlife the right way. 

Glamorous restaurants and bars line the streets and welcome locals and travellers to enjoy the atmosphere and take in the environment. Riga is a beautiful UNESCO World Heritage site and with a breathtaking mixture of elegance, old, and new, it creates a whirling place of adventure that bridges Russian and Latvian influences into one pretty place.
