Kuldiga Town and Ventas Rumba
After some 2 hours drive (with a coffee stop and beautiful views on the way) arrive in the most charming medieval town of Latvia – Kuldiga. Stroll the narrow streets of the best-preserved medieval town in the country. Visit the widest waterfall in Europe – Ventas Rumba and enjoy the view of the famous Kuldiga bridge. If you are lucky to come in spring, witness the local fish vimba swimming to its spawning grounds and jumping upstream in Ventas Rumba. If you are coming on a warm summer day having a refreshing swim in Ventas Rumba is a must.
Sabile Town
Now it’s time to hop in the car and go to Sabile – the next beautiful small town of Courland. Stroll around the charming narrow streets of the historic town and have a look at the beautiful Abava River Valley from the top of Sabile Hillfort.
Check-in the Northernmost Vineyard in Sabile Town
Explore the famous Sabile Wine Hill. Find this place in Guinness Records Book as the most northernmost vineyard, where the grapes grow. The hill ascends above the Sabile Town with a gorgeous view of Abava Valley and Sabile Town. Buy some local wines and some amazing local ciders in the local shop.
Natural Beauty of Abava River Valley
Have a stop at the famous Devil’s Cave (Velnala) and Devil’s Stone (Velnakmens) to enjoy the natural beauty of Abava River that forms one of the most beautiful river valleys in Latvia.
Enjoy the Cozy medieval Kandava Town
Take the next stop in Kandava Town. Kandava is one of the most beautiful towns in Latvia. Its history dates back to 1230. Take a late afternoon-evening walk on its narrow and tranquil streets and will visit Kandava church hill and old Kandava castle ruins. From here have the last view of the beautiful Abava River Valley.
Visit Nature Reserve "Čužu purvs"
Before going back to Riga have a chance to do a short late afternoon hike in the unique Nature Reserve “Čužu purvs” near Kandava Town. Discover some protected and rare wetland habitats and sulfur springs here. If you are lucky and visit this site in the summer (from June to August) you will see the bog covered in yellow blossoms of the protected plant species Pentaphylloides fruticosa called “krūmu čuža” in Latvian.
