Description

You will be picked up from your hotel in Riga at 9:00AM, from where you will travel to where the city meets the sea, Daugavgriva. You’ll see the different face of the city of Riga on your way, as you travel through Bolderaja, the most distant city district. Here you will witness a town that differs from other parts of Riga, where Soviet legacy overlaps with old wooden architecture. You will then go for a fun hike (5 kilometers both ways) in the “Piejura' Nature Park to the Daugavgriva Lighthouse and back. If the weather allows, you will walk through the  Daugavgriva mall in the sea. The biggest river of Latvia Daugava (or as the locals call it the “River of Destiny”) ends in the Gulf of Riga here. On the way back from the Daugavgriva Lighthouse, you’ll see old military bunkers hidden in the dunes. This place holds a lot of historic secrets, and was closed for regular visitors during the Soviet era. After your hike through Daugavgriva, you will visit another big river that separates Riga and the neighboring Jurmala cities. The scenery will be different there, as it is less rough and more natural than in Daugavgriva. This is your next hiking location, where you will hike for approximately 5 kilometers through pristine coastal pine forest. Finally, you will result on an amazing and secluded sandy beach, where if the day is warm and sunny you’ll have a chance to chill out, have a swim, and catch some rays.
