Wondering where to party in Riga?
Riga offers a huge variety of great bars & clubs and it would take all weekend and a lot of consumed alcohol to get through all of them! We think you should visit at least four of them to become familiar with Riga`s nightlife. Riga Pub Crawl gives you an idea which are cool places worth another visit during your stay in Riga, and which places are a waste of time.
Please be informed that we are NOT associates
and do NOT work with the website
We do not receive any booking requests made through the www.allfreetours.com so reservations confirmed by them are NOT valid.
There are two ways how to enjoy Riga Pub Crawl:
• Leave everything in the hands of our nightlife Guides and crawl the route beloved by many tourists who have visited Riga before you.
• Inform us if you have any personal plans, destinations, and wishes (VIP table reservations, limo/party bus transfers, different type of group activities, e.g. bobsleigh, curling, beer bike, sauna & hot tub, etc.) and we will make a Special program for your group.
You might be wondering what to do while waiting for the pub crawl
to start or how to “charge your batteries” the next day when you are dealing with a little bit
of a hangover… After receiving many emails with the same questions of what else we can recommend
doing in Riga besides drinking beer and visiting nightclubs, we have come up with some great ideas!
Look no further – the Riga Pub Crawl team has picked Top activities that will keep you busy,
entertained and fix that little hangover if needed!
*If you have any questions regarding the price or availability or if you need more information, do not hesitate to contact us. We’ll take care of everything!
Are you one of those who seek an adrenaline rush? This might just be the right thing for you. Enjoy a head-spinning snow drifting on one of the ice tracks near Riga! Our professional drifters will take you for a ride, or shall we say `slide`? If you dare to try this, message us for more info.
Since childhood our parents have told us to be careful and avoid walking in the swamp as some of them are as deep as 10 meters! It might look like solid ground, but any second you can sink into it and disappear. Be afraid! But hey! We’ve found a way to enjoy this mysterious and yet beautiful and peaceful piece of land! The key is to use bog shoes! The guide will show you some amazing nature sites - visited only by few - the ones who trust that we must do things outside the box!
Enjoy the ride at one of the longest tracks in Europe which are used for the World Bobsleigh Championship. On this 1420 meters long track you’ll have a chance to try The Olympic Bob which reaches speeds over 100km/h and The Soft Bob over 70km/h! Something you can’t do anywhere else…
Most of us have watched curling on TV, especially in the Olympic Games. Why not try curling as one of the winter activities, while visiting Riga? You do know how to play it. It is not a problem, as there will be a professional instructor who will guide you not only through the basics and main rules of this game, but also teach you how to slide the stones and sweep the ice in front of the stone to have good results.
If you are a group of 4-6 people, you can rent the ice sheet for 1 hour. If the group is larger, we strongly advise taking 1.5 hours or 2 hours of the ice sheet. There are 2 ice sheets located parallel to each other so a group of 24-26 people can easily play at a time. After each end, you will count the points to see which team will win.
Have you ever heard the phrase "It is Baltic out there!" meaning "it is freezing cold"? Yes, that means we do tend to have rough winters here. We've learned to take advantage of it and spend our winters as cool as Scandinavians! Here is what you do - warm up those freezing toes in the hot sauna until the sweat breaks through, and then dare to dip into the ice hole drilled in the frozen river outside! Don't worry. You'll warm up in seconds after sliding into a hot tub with a water temperature of +40 degrees Celsius afterwards. You can enjoy staying warm while breathing that crisp air and enjoying the view over the Suspension bridge and the castle of Riga. Yes - you heard it right - this is just a few min drive from the Old Town!
Electric go-karts are produced in Latvia and have a special turbo button which accelerates the speed and slowly recharges by itself. The track is made to make your competition as fun as possible. If you want to receive the printouts with each lap time, you have to play by the rules. If you feel that you are falling behind all the others (or cannot overtake the leader of the race) you can cheat by cutting off part of the track. That way the lap time won`t be counted by you can remind other racers about yourself suddenly showing up in front of them.
If you have ever wanted to try how it feels to fire the same weapons seen many times before on TV shows and movies...well, in Riga you have a chance to fire real firearms, be it a Magnum revolver, Winchester shotgun, Beretta pistol, Kalashnikov or SPAS-15 combat shotgun. The shooting range offers pistols, revolvers and different rifles to choose from. Will you ever have the opportunity to fire Kalashnikov again? The most popular Riga shooting range package includes 5 shots of Glock17 pistol, 5 shots of Swiss B&T GHM9 used by police, military and special units as well as 5 shots from Russian Kalashnikov and 5 shots from American Winchester pump-action shotgun. Additionally, on a day you can add a Magnum revolver, SPAS-15 shotgun, two-barrel hunting rifle Izh17 Baikal from Russia, American rifle Sig Sauer 516 Patrol and many pistols (Beretta, Walther, Heckler & Koch, CZ, Sig Sauer, Luger, Makarov PM, Tokarev and many more).
*Please note – you need to be sober to participate in this activity.
Who says that cycling and drinking beer is a summer thing? We do both throughout the whole year! And we love to do things differently - we combine cycling with drinking in one activity – yes, it’s fun! The Ultimate Beer Bike offers a great way to explore the Old town of Riga while sipping a beer. Up to 15 people can ride one Beer Bike at a time and we have multiple Beer Bikes to accompany bigger groups! Don`t worry if you are not familiar with Riga Old town yet, because you will get your chauffeur/bartender to take care of you. Oh, and did we mention that the price includes 2.5 litres of beer?
Airsoft is an interesting game where you’ll have to work in a team. Use realistic airsoft guns, shoot your opponents and work as a team to succeed! Professional instructors will give you multiple different game scenarios to keep it interesting throughout all time. The game will take part in a former military base of the Soviet Union army, just 20 km from Riga downtown. This is a great outdoor activity in winter when the territory is covered by snow.
We all like to play football but we have lifted it to another level which is more challenging. The only rule - there are no rules. Try to smash all enemies into the wall while successfully escaping from the ones who try to hit you down. And don`t forget to score! Between the breaks, you can try Sumo or other entertaining games.
Travel in style with a Lincoln, Chrysler, Mercedes or Rolls Royce limousine! We will welcome you to Riga airport or just outside your hotel to pick you up for a ride through the streets of Riga while sipping a beer or champagne and enjoying the music! Are you planning a getaway for your friends? Surprise them by booking one or two strip dancers to accompany you during the trip! Is there a better way how to start your holidays? Enter Latvia in style!
Are you a dog lover? Choose this activity and you’ll find yourself in your happy place! A team of friendly
and very active dogs will take you for a spin through a 3 km long track located in a forest. All dogs are rescue dogs and they’re taken
care of by a lovely family. Huskies are work dogs and they need this kind of activity, so by going on a ride with them, you’re just making them happier!
If there is no snow, the sled will be changed to a wheeled cart so activity is also possible in autumn and spring months while temperatures are not too high.
Why go to the club if you can bring the club to you? Book a party bus for the airport transfer or just to drive through the streets of Riga. Have your bartender save you in the moments when the glass is almost empty! Listen to your music if you fancy something special! If you wish to do a special surprise for your friends, you can always add one or more strip dancers!
It doesn’t matter if the sun is shining or the frost is biting, it is time for quad bike riding! Enjoy the ride on forest paths, where sometimes struggle can be real! Challenge your balancing skills on a steep dune or try not to slide off the snow-covered path when wheels choose to go the other way! Of course, if this sounds too rough for you, there is another option - a special track where you can enjoy a more predictable ride. Doesn’t matter what you will choose, you’ll love it as the rides will be outside Riga in the forests. Imagine a forest wonderland covered in snow!
*Please note – you need to be sober to participate in this activity.
Clay pigeon shooting is also known as moving target shooting. Targets will be released in the air for you to quickly point at them and shoot! Although with every shot it gets easier to hit the target, to make it more challenging for you, the intensity and location of targets change all the time! If you’ve never done it, that’s not a problem as there will be a professional instructor to show you how it is done.
*Please note – you need to be sober to participate in this activity.
Off-Road team’s motto is: ``Where the road ends, the journey begins!``. Sounds good, doesn’t it? What can be better than an adrenaline rush that makes your heart pound? Challenge yourself and your teammates. No matter - couples, friends or colleagues – everyone will have fun during Off-road driving! You will be picked up from your hotel with these 4x4 jeeps. The instructor will drive you out of the city borders where you can enjoy the pure off-road experience. Then the instructor will sit back and relax while you’re trying to get the team through the forest, sand, water and everything else you can and cannot imagine!
Are you competitive with your friends? This might be a great activity to do if you would like to quickly get that adrenaline rush! We’ll take you to the longest indoor Go-Kart track in Latvia where a lap is 250 meters long. Can you prove that you’re the fastest among your friends?
Laser tag is a great activity for those who like the action and adrenaline rush but at the same time don`t want to get bruises from shots. There will be the same game scenarios, competitions, and excitement as in paintball, but you’ll get through without getting hurt! In laser tag, there is no physical impact on you when you’re getting `shot`. Another bonus is that you do not need to purchase additional ammo as it is in the airsoft or a paintball game. Each player is wearing a headband, which vibrates and plays a sound signal when the player is `shot` making this as safe and painless as possible, but no less interesting and challenging! You can choose to play one hour, two hours or three hours of laser tag.
Usually the interior consists of wooden logs and massive tables. These pubs offer a good variety of locally brewed beer and homemade Latvian wines. Definitely best places to get familiar with Latvian culture and cuisine. Enjoy folk music concerts and take part in Latvian karaoke. Old-style Latvian pubs recently have become popular with both locals and tourists from all over Europe.
Don`t expect a huge variety of beers here. Rock bars are all about the music and rock stars. Set your watch back to the ‘90s, jump into the crowd and dance to the rhythm of grunge. There are also famous Latvian bands (not only rock) playing shows here, some of which can be overcrowded. Rock bars also pay tribute to Latvian rock music legends and some rooms are made into a museum.
A perfect pub crawl cannot be done without visiting the iconic cocktail lounge located on the 26th floor of Riga`s highest hotel. It’s a bit more pricey, but chic and definitely worth a visit. The entrance fee and a welcome drink are included in the price.
Dance bars usually consist of few seperate areas with comfy seats where people chat to each other while slowly sipping beer or some coctail. With every hour closer to midnight, these bars become more lively. Local DJs do their best to make a great atmosphere. Some of the dance bars have two or even three seperate dance floors.
You know what to expect here. Tourists from England and Ireland, well-known beer brands, loud chatter and laughter and, of course football. So get yourself a pint of fresh Guinness, listen to live music, watch sports and order some classic British pub food like burgers, fish and chips, and buffalo wings.
Nighclubs in Riga vary from mid-size venues to ones with capacity for 1,000 clubbers, with smoke machines, great audio systems, flashing lasers, go-go dancers and gorgeous bartenders. You’ll find everything to create a fascinating party. Some clubs also host various events and concerts. You have to be well-dressed to gain entrance to some of these clubs, and some ask to make a table reservation.
To some groups, the best place to finish off the pub crawl might be the stip clubs. The guide can take you to the ones that are not tourist traps.
