From Riga: Full-Day Scenic Gauja River Valley Kayaking Trip

1. From Riga: Full-Day Scenic Gauja River Valley Kayaking Trip

Meet your guide in the morning and head to Gauja River Valley to begin your kayaking trip. The curving, wild nature of the Gauja River and its tributaries makes this experience one to remember, and a must-visit for travelers who like to venture off the beaten path. During your kayaking tour, see some of the most beautiful landscapes in Gauja River Valley, including stunning steep riverbanks, awesome sandstone cliffs, the dense forests of Gauja National Park, and more. Your eco-tour leader will engage you with a special “improv-travel” approach and tell you about the nature, culture, and traditions of Latvia. Paddle for 15 to 20 kilometers downstream on a truly enjoyable adventure. There are several alternative points to finish on the way so the length of the trip can be adjusted according to your wishes. After reaching your final destination, benefit from a transfer right back to your hotel in Riga, or stay in the scenic town of Sigulda.

What people are saying about Sigulda

I find Latvia, and Riga, a welcoming place in general and that positive impression has just been so reinforced, and greatly exceeded by my experience with Rolands on the kayak tour. With great environmental and local knowledge, as you would expect, Rolands went above and beyond bringing everything to life with a depth of personal experience. But he need not have done as the environment itself was so breath taking - with mist rising from an untouched natural world absolutely full of river life it felt at times like you where paddling down the Amazon or were an extra on the set of Jurassic park. More was provided than could have been expected in the tour description. I was left feeling looked after and thoroughly contented. If you want a TRULY unforgettable experience and experience a different side of Latvia, the "real Latvia" whatever that means, book this tour. You will be glad you did.

Our canoe tour of the Gauja river valley was great. Everything was excellently organized. We started from a perfect spot (tributary to the Gauja) and paddled along the most beautiful part of the river valley. This would not have been possible without the canoe transport and the perfect local knowledge of our guide. Ronalds, our guide, spoke perfect English and, thanks to his broad knowledge, was able to tell us a lot about nature, Latvian history and the current situation. The route was a good length - we were challenged but not overwhelmed, we were able to paddle to our liking, take a break or just watch and enjoy nature. The atmosphere was always good. In the end, we felt very enriched - with impressions of the wonderful nature, with information, with our own experiences and those told, with a good atmosphere. I can warmly recommend the tour.
