Canoe trip - pure relaxation in motion. Beautiful Gauja river offers easy-level, safe boat trips, scenic views and unique treasure for nowadays: natural rivermouth where one can enjoy the river flowing into the sea as it is: no urban areas, no harbours or other man-made buildings.

Comfy and stable canoe boats are suitable for 2 adults and will have enough place also for a child or even two (if up to 5 y.o.). The boat has a waterproof storage.
We will provide a transfer from finish (in Carnikava town) back to the base, life jackets, paddles, bags for mobile devices and even a route map.
Route length: 24km (~6h) or 19km (~4h) upon guests choice.
Perfect day-tour for those visiting Riga but looking for some adventure in nature!
We will meet guests in camping „Leiputrija” where they can park their car and prepare for the trip. This is also where the trip starts from.
First phase of the ride will lead among several islands, along Adazi town (on left). The riverway will later cross the main highway (A1/E67) and soon meet Carnikava town with its pedestrian bridge wich is the longest such bridge in Latvia.
Carnikava is where the finnishing point is, but guests can choose to end here now or continue their way to the estuary of Gauja (till Baltic sea) and come back to Carnikava afterwards. At the final phase the river is very calm, as it has reached the sea level, therefor it is easy to paddle back from the sea to Carnikava town (feels lake a lake, not river).
We will organize a transfer from finish point (Carnikava) back to „Leiputrija”.
There is a local history museum of Carnikava right at the finishing point so one can enjoy its exposition as well.
In general: a trip for leisure, easy-level, safe, but interesting. No special boating experience is needed. Perfect for families with children, for beginners and those looking for an active day-out in nature.
