Just 50 km east of Riga, Sigulda is a natural paradise that has soothed the souls of city slickers for more than a century.

It offers the awesome landscapes of the Gauja National Park, legendary castles and adrenaline pumping adventures like the world-class bobsleigh track. It is a mecca for hikers, artists and anyone seeking inspiration and connection with nature. And on this tour, we will get a taste of this beautiful haven!
