There is so much to see and do in Sigulda that sometimes it is difficult to fit it all in. This comprehensive tour led by a professional guide, is designed to show you around the historic highlights of the city in just a day. Ride the aerial cableway in Sigulda. Opened in 1969, this is the only one of its kind in the Baltic States.

The Order of the Brothers of the Sword began building Sigulda castle in 1207. During the Great Northern War, the castle was destroyed never to be restored again.

This is the most popular and vast cave in Latvia. It was formed in the course of 10,000 years by water gradually eroding sandstone, and is a protected geological site. The cave is the oldest tourist attraction in Latvia. Marvel at the ancient inscriptions lining the walls. A trip to the Turaida Museum Reserve should not be missed. The 42 hectares of the reserve feature archaeological, architectural, historical, and art monuments, dating back from the 11th century.

What people are saying about Sigulda

Great trip to see the castles and forests of Latvia

Even though it was pouring almost the whole day, we had an excelent experiencia guided by our guide Richards, who gave us a "poncho" and guided us through the different attractions of Sigulda (castles, parks, cave, etc.). He told us a lot of stories and legends about Latvia and he was very patient to answer all our doubts and he also offered to take us a lot of photos.

We spent a very interesting and inforative day with our tour guide Ilze. A very sweet lady, very knowledgeable and easy to chat with. We can highly recommend this tour-

Very friendly driver who listened to our requests and showed us other sights along the way.
