Canoe trip - pure relaxation in motion. Beautiful Gauja river offers easy-level, safe boat trips, lots of curves, unspoiled nature all around, scenic views, birds singing... 100% leisure for nature lovers. There are numerous islands on the route where one can make short stops.
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 our base to starting point, life jackets, paddles, bags for mobile devices and even a route map.
Route length: 34km (~7h) or 17km (~4h) upon guests choice.
Perfect day-tour for nature lovers who visits Riga city!
We will meet guests in camping „Leiputrija” where they can park their car and prepare for the trip.
We will organize a transfer to starting point: guests can choose to start from Sigulda (34km/~8 hour trip) or Murjāņi (17km/~4 hour trip).
Near Sigulda town banks of the river are rocky („Devils cave”, Ziedleju cliffs, Katlapu cliffs etc.). Further, near Murjāņi, the banks become flatter as the river flows into the lowland coming closer and closer to sealevel, though it is the phase where groups of islands appear, river gets wider and more relaxing, and richer wildlife to observe: perfect for bird watching.
Finish directly in camping „Leiputrija” (the meeting point), on a right bank of the river. A banner is hanging so noone missed the place.
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.
Boats: comfy and stable canoe boats which 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 for belongings.
Life jackets, paddles, bags for mobile devices and even a route map, as well as useful tips from our instructor will be provided. Do not hesitate to ask if having any doubts or questions about the trip.
