I had only 2 and a half days in Latvia, and I wanted to be sure to get an authentic bobsled experience! I contacted Rihards, who was very prompt and informative throughout the communication. He was also very flexible regarding pick-up/drop-off and my overall schedule.
Rihards met us with a big, friendly smile and was great throughout the journey. I learned many interesting things about the country (without it ever feeling like a "tour lecture"). The bobsledding exceeding my expectations! What an adrenaline rush! I can't recommend this enough for anyone visiting the area!

Rihard organised an amazing trip on the Latvian Olympic Bobsleigh track. The amospher was busneslike, Russian built facilite, had to waite while the Polish skeleton team finished some practise runs ! This was the real thing and totaly amazing.....16 bends, speeds around 110km/h, up to 5g all in 46 secs....WOW. Rihard took lots of great photos and took us on a detour to the longest stepest ski slope in Latvia. Could not recomend the trip more highly but not for the faint hearted. Stuart, Devon
Thank you Rihards.

Rihards drove us out to the lovely Sigulda Valley for this nerve-shredding experience. Ok, we are both 60, but we've tried one or two interesting things. If you think you've got the cachuetes, try this! Richards is friendly and knowledgeable, with a totally "can do" attitude. We'll be back for more. Probably sledding, if the snow is good.

We were a group of 4 college students studying abroad (Feb. 2014) looking to get a taste for under the radar Eastern Europe. Couldn't have asked for more! Taken by Discover Latvia owner (Rihards, only about 26 yrs old but extremely professional) from our hotel in Riga to Sigulda, a resort village about 40 minutes from downtown. Spent the day visiting National Park, bobsledding, and driving through the countryside. Along the way, Rihards photographed our experience, exposed us to the beauty of his country, and discussed Latvian culture and history with me to my heart's desire. His knowledge of and passion for his home country was inspiring (and his Riga recommendations were spot on). A great, locally owned business to support! If I make it back to Riga, would love to try the dogsled tour!

"Excellent Bobslieghing Fun!"
Reviewed March 5, 2015 Lyndsey from UK
Discover Latvia tours were fantastic Rihards picked us up from the hotel and we travelled for an hour to Sigulder to the bobsleigh track. Rihards has excellent knowledge of the countryside and is passionate about it which really shows. Once we arrived at the track he showed us the skeleton and Luge tracks before our bobsleigh ride. The ride was amazing , scary, and fast but a once in a lifetime opportunity !!!! Rihards took a lot of pictures for and kindly emailed them to me once we returned home. I would defiantly recommend Discover Latvia tours , I would love to go Husky Dog Sledging next.
