One day in Sigulda

My wife and I are visiting Riga for a short break in February and are really excited! We’d love to take a trip out to Sigulda for the day but I’m unsure of an itinerary for the day - can anyone help please?

We love walking and hiking so this is no problem for us. Thanks!

The castle that often appears in pictures featuring Sigulda (the impressive red castle) is not in Sigulda, it is in Turaida (about 4 kms walk from Sigulda centre). So, walk around Sigulda a bit and then head for the Turaida castle. On the way you can visit Gutman's Cave. There are some walking trails starting from Gutman's cave around Turaida. If you do not want to walk back there are buses from Turaida back to Sigulda (roughly every second hour, costs 50 euro cents. Info: https:/…2017-12-11

This is now a good and functional intercity bus route and timetable search engine for Latvia: https://www.1188.lv/en/transport/buses

But remember that in February you can have lots of snow

on the ground and minus 25 degrees.

So be prepared with right footwear and clothes.
