  • White dune trail of the Pūrciems
    A short walk through green and nicely scent pine tree forest is taking to the top of ~20 meter high and 6000 years old massive dune. Beautiful view on the sea and beach opens up in front of our eyes from the top of this human hand untouched place.

  • Ēvaži Steep and nature trail
    Nature trail leads to the Gulf of Riga coastline rarity – Ēvaži Steep which is up to 15 meter high and offers scenic views on a small forest river, the dune and the coastal forest all around.

    The vicinity of the dune is captivating both because of its primeval nature and its history - the first Stone Age settlement on the northwest shore of Latvia was found here. A special path was constructed to allow people to enjoy this archaeological monument of national importance in full; it is a special path along the banks of the Pilsupīte River.

  • Cape Kolka – The Meeting Place of Two Seas
    Cape Kolka is a meeting place created by nature. Seas and people meet here. Cape is constantly reshaped by the winds and sea waters making us really appreciate the power of nature.

    You will have some free time to calmly enjoy this speacial seaside by walking, relaxing on the beach or even climbing up the obserwation tower if you will feel like so.

    Cape Kolka area for many years was rulled by the Soviet army. This was militarized zone with very limited access and even shore cannons were built. Cannons are not there anymore, but some concrete structures on which they were located still stand and can be visited by those who are interested in this history.

"Kuldiga daytour & Kurzeme Coastal Scenery daytour"
Reviewed November 10, 2013
Ronald from Netherlands
For the second time visiting Latvia, staying for just 4 days we decided not only to stay in Riga, but also to go on tours to the lesser known parts of this country. On the 'Discover Latvia' website we found just what we were looking for, a daytour to Kuldiga and a daytour to Kurzeme and we decided to make a reservation. Everything was well arranged and both of the tours fulfilled more than our expectations! Both of the days Rihards picked us up at our hotel and he guided us very well. We had plenty of time to explore all the sights on the way and to take lots of pictures, fortunately Rihards likes photography too :-) and he's a nice guy to hang out with.

So for this nice weekend with lots of sightseeing, fun and a great deal of time relaxing in the nature we can only say thanks a lot, well done and when we come back to Latvia we sure will contact you again!
