Full description
Get picked up from your hotel in Riga in the morning and begin the two-hour journey to the north-eastern part of Gauja National Park.

Kick off your adventure with an 8-kilometer hike along a beautiful nature trail that leads to the rocky slopes of Gauja River Valley. Enjoy the unique opportunity to explore some of the most well-hidden trails in the park with your guide who will help you get the most out of your day.

After your hike, stop for lunch in one of the most beautiful towns in Latvia - Cesis, whose history dates back to the 13th-century and is almost as old as Riga. Enjoy some free time to visit the famous Cesis Castle, the Old Town and its beautiful squares, St. John's Church (built in the 13th-century), The House of Harmony, and the House of Princesses. Experience the charm and atmosphere of a real Latvian town away from the hustle and bustle of the more cosmopolitan Riga.

Not, it's time to explore the beautiful river banks of the longest river in Latvia - Gauja. See the largest white sandstone cliff in Latvia (Sietiņiezis) and admire some of the most precious natural landscapes in Gauja National Park.

At the end of the day, get dropped off back at your hotel in Riga.
