About Riga International Airport
Located on Mazeju 1 in the Marupe district, approximately six miles from the Latvian capital of Riga, Riga International Airport is serviced by about a dozen scheduled airlines, including Finnair, Lot, and Lufthansa. The airport dates back to 1971 and was renovated in 2001. Book your choice of flights from Riga to destinations throughout Europe and beyond through ebookers.
Parking at the Airport
Long-term parking is available in the P2 and P3 parking lots. The P2 lot is about a two-minute walk from the departure terminal, and a day’s parking can be had there for LVL 3. At the slightly more distant P3 lot, parking costs LVL 2.50 per day. Luggage trolleys are available at both lots, and you pay for parking when you retrieve your car upon return from your trip.
Ground Transportation to Riga International Airport
For only LVL 3, you can board the Air Baltic Shuttle at one of several central points in Riga and reach the airport in no more than twenty minutes. The service begins at 4:25 a.m. and ends around midnight. You do not have to be an Air Baltic passenger to use the shuttle, and you can even buy your ticket on board. Public buses and minibuses from the city to the airport are available at prices from LVL 0.45 to 0.70. A private taxi ride from central Riga to Riga International Airport costs between LVL 8 and LVL 10, and the trip takes about fifteen minutes. No matter how you get to the airport, remember that you can save more on a rental car at your destination by booking in advance with ebookers.
Before Your Flight
You have plenty of choices for enjoying a cup of coffee and a quick breakfast before you board your flight from Riga. The airport features five cafes: Costa Coffee, Coffee Nation, Buffet, Lama, and Pascucci. If you want a full meal, choose between T. G. I. Friday’s or Lido, or enjoy a slice of pizza at the Pizza Bar.
Flying to Bergen
Bergen is a Norwegian city on the peninsula of Bergenshalvøyen and is known for its work in aqua-farming and shipping. Visitors from around the world begin their holidays by landing at Bergen Airport, Flesland. The airport is served by airlines that include British Airways, KLM, and SAS Scandinavian Airlines. Take the time to visit ebookers when searching for fares and packages for your trip to Bergen.
Transportation from Bergen Airport
Rent a car through ebookers, and you can easily pick it up right outside the terminal. Four agencies operate from Bergen Airport, offering approximately one hundred vehicles. If you'd rather take another form of transportation, bus service to the city centre takes approximately seventeen to thirty minutes and is offered at NOK 70 per adult. Taxis are also available at fares that begin at NOK 6.90 per minute.
Weather in Bergen
Because of Bergen's unique location far north, on a peninsula, and surrounded by mountains, the temperatures tend to be chilly all year long. The warmest days fall in July, with an average daily temperature of 15°C, although the high can reach 18°C. The months of December through January see daily temperatures of 2°C to 3°C, so you won't want to forget your gloves and hat. The winter months are also very rainy in Bergen, so plan on bringing an umbrella and experiencing lots of cloudy days.
What to Do in Bergen
Bergen is busiest in the month of May, with many local festivals and dry weather for those who are into mountain hiking and climbing. Rates for hotel rooms booked during this month may be higher, so you'll want to book ahead on ebookers. June through August offer slightly less crowded conditions, making those months a great option for travel. Take a walk along the Bryggen Hanseatic Wharf to get a feel for the history of the area, or hike to the top of Mount Floyen for fabulous views of Bergen and the harbour. Bergen and the surrounding area offer a decidedly different holiday experience.
