Trip Itinerary

We’ll pick you up from your hotel in Riga at 8:00 a.m. and will go to the starting point of our kayaking/canoeing in Gauja National Park.
Kayaking/Canoeing down the Gauja River and it's most beautiful tributaries
The majestic Gauja River and its unique and natural tributaries make this trip one to remember. You will paddle down for around 6 hours, while enjoying the beautiful steep river banks, famous 350 million years old sand-cliffs and dense forests of famous Gauja National Park. In the hot summer days you’ll have occasional stop-overs to have a refreshing swim, if you want. Your eco-tour leader will tell you a lot about Latvian nature, culture, and traditions. In a dry summer the water level in Latvian rivers may get can be quite low. Thus occasionally you will have to get out of your kayak/canoe and pull your boat a bit. This makes the this experience even more adventurous and interesting.
Transfer back to Riga (or Sigulda)
At the end of this unforgettable kayaking/canoeing trip we’ll bring you back to your hotel in Riga or your can choose staying in the the tranquil town of Sigulda and further explore its beautiful surroundings.
