Gauja National Park Reviews
i visited here on a day-trip from Riga. It's 2.80 by bus and about 90 minute journey. The main highlights are Turaida castle, the hiking trails and I particularly recommend Paradise Hill. more »
In my opinion, Gauja National Park is the most beautiful part of Latvia. But they also recognized this and it is more on the expensive side. more »
So peaceful, green and quiet place with wild blueberry and amazing caves! We came here with our two kids and it was interesting for all of us!
Great place to have a long walk - there are several routes are available (difference is in complicity). Nature here is just awesome - trees, bushes, flowers, ponds and whilst you are walking, birds are singing for and with you 😃 loved this place
