Full description
Meet your guide in the morning and head to Brasla River for your kayaking trip.

The curving, wild nature of Brasla river makes this experience one to remember, and a must-visit for travelers who like to venture off the beaten path. Your eco-tour leader will engage you with a special improv-travel approach and tell you about the nature, culture, and traditions of Latvia. 

Following an 8-kilometer ride on the wild Brasla, you will enter the much bigger Gauja River. From here, make the most of a 14-kilometer journey to Sigulda Town. Here, you will spot the stunning view of the majestic and medieval Turaida castle as you approach Sigulda.
