Visit to Nature Reserve "Čužu purvs"
Before we start our kayaking trip, we’ll do a short morning hike in Nature Reserve “Čužu purvs” near Kandava Town. In this unique place. You’ll see protected and rare wetland habitats and sulfur springs here. If you are lucky and visit this site in spring (from May to beginning of June) you will see the bog covered in yellow blossoms of the protected plant species Pentaphylloides fruticosa called “krūmu čuža” in Latvian. We’ll take ca. 1 hour walk on the nature trail there (ca. 2 km in total).
Kayaking in Abava River Valley
After the inspiring morning walk we will start our kayaking trip of around 30 km (19 miles) on Abava River. On the way we’ll enjoy the gorgeous Abava River valley. This is one of the most beautiful kayaking/canoeing trips in Latvia. Our knowledgeable eco-tour guide will engage you with our special Improv-travel approach and will tell you about the nature and culture values of Latvia.
