“Thrilling”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2012

Private-owned sand cave labyrinth of 2 km in overall length with constant +8 C temperature all year round. We were glad to have taken a flashlight, but were sorry to have no jackets or extra coins to have a guide. Entrance fee is 2 lats per person without guide or 3 lats with a guide. It was a thrilling experience to navigate in the narrow sand tunnels, which I would not recommend to people with tendency to claustrophobia.

“Great family day out guaranteed!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2011

I have been here twice in my life and absolutely loved it both times, first I went there with my class years ago, and now recently.
It is beautiful, I would even say mystical place to be. I loved the tradition that newlyweds go there and leave the bridal bouquet in there for good luck, and there are little spaces cut in sand to put candles it looks really nice.
The tunnel labyrinth is over 2km long; these caves are human made, in old times to make glass.
And you can consider yourself lucky if you manage to find perfectly round stone with a hole through it. I did manage to do it and it looks pretty.
There is constant temperature of 8C if I remember correctly, so in winter its is warm, but in summer cools you down.
Great family day out guaranteed.

“Beautiful caves, pleasant tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2011

Riežupes sand caves are artificial cave labyrinth cut in the white sandstone, currently the longest cave system in Latvia. Located at Riežupes Nature Park, about 5 km from Kuldiga.

The tour was very pleasant and interesting, great place to see!
Loved the candle idea.
