The charming small town of Sigulda is located just an hour’s drive from Riga in an area of exceptional natural beauty. A quick scenic ride in the aerial cable car will whisk you out of the valley and across the Gauja River to see three historic castles, including Sigulda Castle, Turaida Castle, and the Krumulda Medieval Castle ruins. Historians are in for a treat, as the area around Sigulda has many historic manor houses, stately villas, churches, and other ancient buildings to admire. The beauty of the surrounding landscape beckons nature lovers to get out and be active – you can go hiking or hire a bicycle, scooter, or even a boat to explore the landscape, while daredevils can try Bungee Jumping, zip-lining, and obstacle courses at two adventure parks.
