Went to experience views across river Gauja. Parking available from both sides, tickets can be purchased on the spot. During peak period it’s very busy. Cable car was undergoing some renovations that time, so once it finished, it will be more comfortable I believe. Safe for small children also. Food and drinks, souvenirs available. Nice sitting areas, relaxed atmosphere.

This is a unique experience for the region, and the views are beautiful, so it is worth a go. The only negative is that while on the side of the city center you book a time to go and can then do other activities while you wait, on the other side there is no booking, just standing in line and waiting. And as the car does not take very many people in at one go, we were stuck just waiting in the line for quite some time. So this is definitely something to take into account.

The cable car spans the valley and is approached through the walking stick park not far from Sigulda Castel. At peak times (such as the late morning) crossings may be fully booked, but there’s a terrace outside with excellent views across the Gauja River gorge and you can buy a coffee or snack while sitting outside watching the people on the zip wire which follows the cable car down across the gorge to just over its mid-point before being pushed by the cable car back up to Sigulda. I would have quite liked to have used the zip, but at €95 per pair, compared to €8 for a single crossing on the cable car, decided it was not exactly a bargain! Once on the other side it’s a pleasant, if slightly strenuous, walk to Turaida following the Serpentine path and stopping off at Gutmanis cave. Overall it's useful, but quite expensive compared to the castle admission fees. NB At the time of writing the TripAdvisor Map shows this in the wrong location - it's on the North edge of Sigulda town, not in the centre.

Had planned to use the cable car to reach Krimulda but as we approached on a very quiet and cold Friday morning in Feb I started to think that it wouldn't be open. But it was. We were the only two on the ride. Great views and it did save a long walk on icy paths.

Having checked on the website that the cable car was open on the day we wanted to visit, we left Riga for a 2 and half hour return train journey. On arrival at the tourist information centre in Siguilda we were informed that the cable car was not operating at all that day. I explained that the website indicated it was open until 630pm but the lady was emphatic it was not but could not explain the reason. Prospective visitors beware of incorrect information posted on website
