TWO RIVERS, SANDSTONE OUTCROPS AND THE BREATH OF THE HISTORY

  • 8 - 10 h
  • ~20km
  • Murjani - Sunisi - Murjani
  • Bus: ~2h

Program

Tuesday’s hike brings you along the banks of the Loja River and the Gauja River. The Gauja is the longest river in Latvia, many songs and poems are dedicated to this beautiful body of water. The Loja has a second name – Klinšupīte, which translates as the Cliff River, on this hike you will understand why. Don’t worry, no rock climbing involved!

What is waiting for you on this hike? Lovely paths through the woods, magnificent sandstone outcrops, evergreen rough horsetail jungle, almost mountain-hike feelings on the side of a steep bluff, a bit of bushwhacking, typical Latvian countryside landscapes, a breath of history in several abandoned sights, a Soviet atmosphere in a small village, wide open scenery over the woods, the peace of the Gauja, and hopefully – a lot of adventures! Oh, and let’s not forget – approximately 20 km and eight hours of fresh Latvian air!

Highlights

  • Banks of the Loja and the Gauja rivers
  • Inčukalns Devil’s Cave (Inčukalna Velnala)

Level of dificulty

A quite easy hike, only in some places there is steep ascent or descent, but in a few – walking along the side of the bluff. Mostly small foot paths through the woods or countryside roads and a very short distance of bushwhacking.

What to bring with you
  • 2 l of water per person as a minimum 
  • Snacks and lunch for breaks and picnic
How to dress

Please, dress accordingly to the weather forecast! Comfortable hiking shoes are the best option as a little bit of bushwhacking is waiting for you on this hike, but if you are not afraid of snakes, any comfortable shoes or sandals work just as good.
