One of the "to do things" in Sigulda. If you cross the Gauja River valley with this cable car on the other side of the valley are several interesting places to visit.

Visited as part of a private tour of the area. The views were spectacular. Thousands of trees and the river below gave excellent scenery.

Don't get me wrong, if you struggle with walking or really want to see the scenery then fill your boots - it will be worth it for you. Most other people however would be better off taking to the trails and enjoying a pleasant walk....More

Nice experience to go above the river but I think paying €12 for this (riding both ways) is a little bit expensive.
