An awesome place to walk. There are 100's of kms of trails along the river bank, past caves,& red cliff faces & beautiful deep pools. The tracks go thru' Beech, Oak ,Maple & Hazelnut forest.. Higher up - via giant staircases, are remains of old castles and manors,

We went to Sigulda and surrounding sights for one day and it was amazing! I felt like I teleported to Switzerland for a second. River's valley was breath taking, medieval castles, old caves - definitely worth seeing! However, if you want to see the whole park, you definitely need at least two days.

We took a 12 hour Tallinn to Riga tour ( was to be bus but turned out to be private car!) and this was one of the stops the guides made. We were there for about 2 hours hiking along the cliffs on the boardwalk pathways through the forests. It was a nice break from the city life......The part we... More

About an hour drive from Riga there is a NP where you can have an active holidays or just relax in the nature. There are lots of attractions (such as climbing center or bobsleigh track) but you can also just go for a walking tour in the forests, as the treks are quite obvious, well marked and in every tourist...

Very many opportunities to enjoy Latvian nature. You can hike, bike, paddle... Different levels, easy and short routes also for the youngest in the family, but also demanding routes for read adventurers. Lots if historical and cultural places to visit around Gauja.

Warrants a day or 2 as a welcome break from the city (or cities if you're doing a trip through the Baltics). Beautiful park, stunning on a sunny day (not so sure what it'd be like on a grey, rainy day). We spent the whole day walking around Sigulda and up to Turaida castle. We spent a night in the... More
