DAY 1 - ARRIVE IN RIGA
DAY 2 - RIGA OLD TOWN, LATVIAN OPEN-AIR ETHNOGRAPHIC MUSEUM
Old Riga excursion (2hrs) - is the historical and geographical centre of Riga on the right bank of the Daugava. Old Riga covers a relatively small inner area of the 13th-18th century fortifications where unique monuments of medieval architecture which, surprisingly, have survived two world wars are concentrate. The tour includes Riga Castle, Dome Cathedral, St. Peter’s Church, Swedish Gates, Three Brothers, Large & Small Guild Houses & the Freedom Monument.
DAY 3 - SIGULDA, LIGATNE, TURAIDA MUSEUM RESERVE, THE GUTMANALA, LIGATNE NATURE TRAILS
Tour to the Sigulda (10h) - If you wish to be carried away by history, Sigulda is the right place. Since the time when the tribes of Balts and Livs fought with the German crusaders, Sigulda has boasted of exciting legends and mighty castles, which are situated in the distance of a cannon shot from each other.
Durring this tour we will visit: Turaida Museum Reserve (2hr) - is a heritage site. The 42 hectares of grounds are replete with archaeological, architectural, historical and art monuments, all of which provide an account of the events from the eleventh century onwards. The Gutmanala (Goodman's Cave) - grotto is the most popular and vast cave in Latvia. It was formed in the course of 10,000 years by water gradually eroding sandstone. The grotto is a protected geological site and the oldest tourist attraction in Latvia. Goodman's Cave is 10 m high, 12 m wide and 18.8 m deep. We will have lunch and then visit Lustuzis - is a favorite visitable natural site. More and more tourists visiting Ligatne wish to perpetuate themselves and their friends in pictures against the mighty cliff. Therefore a special sight platform was created on the foot of the cliff ensuring rich landscape and at the same time protecting the natural monument from human-induced cracking. Ligatne Nature Trails (35km) - on the banks of the Gauja River, among the woodland crossed with ravines, there are more than 5 km of trails where you can watch wild animals and birds native to Latvia.
Free time in evening in Riga.
DAY 4 - DEPARTURE
