Enjoyable trip to charming landscape

We enjoyed this trip for - beautiful landscape - lovely guide, who provided a lot of information on the Latvian nature. Beside that, we loved the opportunity to learn a lot about Latvia in general. The trip was not difficult, 63 year old had no troubles. It was fairly warm day, so I am glad we took a lot of water with us.

Unforgettable, fantastic experience

Marvelous tour with beautiful sights in a unique environment with a very nice and social guide. He knows a lot about the national park and its vegitation as biologist, but also provides information of Latvia in general. He gives a very good service with pick up at your hotel. In the maintime it was funny and he really connected with us. The tour is doable for everyone. You don't need special fysical endurance. We enjoyed it very much. It was really unforgettable and we can only recommand it.
