I thought that might be the case.....bit of a long way round tho......Sweden is kinda in the opposite direction i want to go in.....Its looking like a long ride around Kaliningrad into Latvia...pooh...

you might check if there is anything from Gdansk. Unity line is the carrier.

.i mean Latvia is not so far away from Polska..

the best option would be to contact travel office. I just noticed that the major carrier from Gdansk is Polferries.

Hey wildrover,
I was trying to find ferries from the Baltic states to Norway, ended bad. The ferries did not exist or were at extortionist prices. I will be the first to admit that I am bad at using the computer and I ended up driving, which was good fun (no speeding fines) hehehe. Next time I am going to Lithuania from Krakow I could even give you a lift to Vilnius? I should be going there very soon. And from there it is only a 4 hour drive to Riga.

so did you check with the travel office?

I was asking W. I have a feeling that he could not be bothered;)

Ha..not true...i shall be checking all those companies you mentioned Miranda , but i have a feeling there isn,t going to be a direct route to Latvia , only via Sweden , and i so hate to begin a journey by setting off in the opposite direction....
