  • Because the conservationists have come up with even something special. You want to cross the Gauja Valley, it requires good qualities of staircase platforms. Resourceful people have added wooden stairs in the forest for a better accessibility of the steep slopes, so that no representatives or sprains as a nasty surprise lurks. With a little steam and power in the thighs, a quite interesting and sporting trips can be the migration of Sigulda after Turaida.

  • At the information desk at the station are very convenient to find directions for bike routes! Some best spicy for people with a good condition of us (myself sporting regarding). The roads are good to find t and at this time of year it was excellent bike back. Cold but dry! Few tourists, so the country for yourself!

  • Definitely a place to go hiking to. I suggest this to all my foreign friends. Beautiful in every season and they are distinctive here. Just be prepared with clothing if it's not summer
  • Beautiful, quiet and relaxing park with great views. Usually not crowded. Recommended.
  • Nice, easy hiking. Beautiful scenery. Good facilities. Very well maintained.
  • Had a awsome walk by the river 'Gauja'.....if you want to come here be shure to take a camera with a lot of space
  • Really quiet place, ideal for those who are into hiking or just want to enjoy a nice walk. definitely recommend to visit during autumn.
