Hiking Adventure in Sigulda and Local Food Tasting
Would you like to explore the beauty of Latvian nature, richness of cultural heritage and support local farmers by trying out fresh food from the market? Then this hiking tour is for you! We have an exciting adventure in mind – a short exploration of the Riga Central Market, a 15 km long hiking tour in Sigulda and a picnic with local goods from the market.
First, you will go to the Riga Central Market, one of the largest markets in Europe, where you will have an opportunity to support Latvian farmers by buying fresh and tasty goods for your traditional lunch. Your guide will tell you about the different local products and the history of farming in Latvia. Next, you will take a train or a public bus to Sigulda and experience a sustainable way of traveling together with locals. Then you will hit the hiking trail and start your adventures in nature. Sigulda, once known as a summer resort, is famous for countless hiking trails that go up and down the banks of the Gauja River, romantic castles and manors, some of the most scenic landscapes in Latvia, impressive sandstone outcrops and the largest cave in the Baltics. On this hiking tour you will have a chance to see it all: lovely hiking paths through the woods, Emperor’s View, Devil’s Rock, Pikene Cliff, Krimulda Manor and Medieval Castle Ruins, Gutman’s Cave, Sigulda Medieval Castle Ruins and New Castle. During the picnic you will have an opportunity to try out what you have bought in the Riga Central Market and get to know the culture via your taste buds, at the same time supporting local farmers.
The hiking trail is well-established, but it requires rather good physical shape as it involves a lot of climbing up and down. The hike takes about six hours.
We will meet in front of the Origo Clock (Riga Central Station), visit the Riga Central Market and take a train or a public bus to Sigulda together.
When booking the hike, please, let us know if you have any food allergies.
