About The Tour

Tour Description

Tour from Riga to experience most of your visit to Latvia in winter time. This tour in Latvia is all about leaving the city and enjoying the pure winter nature of Gauja National Park and Nortern Latvia, while listening to pure white snow crunching under your feet.

"Latvia Winter Tour"

Thank you Rihards for a wonderful day and the passionate way you talked about your country. We wanted to do the bobsledding as well as the Latvia Winter Tour so Rihards kindly combined both experiences into one day and we had an action packed day from beginning to end. I was apprehensive about the bobsledding but Rihards put my mind at rest and I was glad I did it even though I would not necessarily want to do it again in a hurry!
