    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.

    The Līgatne nature trails of Gauja National Park were created in 1975 to acquaint visitors with nature, the species of wild mammals living in Latvia, the natural diversity and the necessity of its protection.

    Forest animals found on the Līgatne nature trails are brought from different places in Latvia.  These are young animals that were either wounded when found or domesticated and which cannot survive without human care and are unable to find food themselves.

Reviews of This Tour

"Hiking Latvia Countryside"
Reviewed August 28, 2013
Carol & Marty from USA
We emailed Rihard ,after reading the website did not have the time go on a planned tour, that we were on a Baltic Cruise had only a small amount of time to spend in Latvia and could he do something for us in the country but making sure that we were back on the ship in plenty of time. He immediately answered NO Problem. It was perfect. He took us to a quaint village in the country, we smelled the beautiful forest, hiked in a nature preserve, visited a grocery on the return trip and was returned to the ship in perfect time. I strongly suggest that you use Rihard for a trip where ever in Latvia.
