Description

Pick up in Riga by car. We will drive to the Pokaini forest, a picturesque location and a legendary ancient holy site. Into these woods people have been drawn for ages, lured by the mysterious rocks and their alleged powers. People have attributed special powers to the stones. Let's take a hike into this magical place! Learn about the different rocks in this remote area. You will be impressed by a high concentration of stones of all shapes and sizes. It's the Latvian stonehenge but even the most sceptical mind will be amazed by the interesting walk and the calmness of the surrounding area. On the way back there is the possibility to learn more about Dobele castle ruin (inside) and explore the outside area with nice views over the Berze river. The last stop is Nakotne park where you can take a look at an ald workshop with different items, motorcycles, antiquites, old bikes, ... In this place you can actually touch and try the different items. Please note that I need to make a prior reservation to take the excursion in the last stop. (only saturday and sunday) You can also taste local tea or buy organic cornflakes. If you are lucky you can even see a helicopter landing!
