It is an amazing place to go hiking and spend some alone time with nature. The river valley is beautiful and the hills won't disappoint you.

Beautiful Gauja river valley with several sandstone rocks, medieval castles, walking and bicycle passes. There is a possibility to rent a boat.

Nothing much to do there, but even just walk and see the woods and flowers definitely give you a real good time. Suggest to go to Turaida castle first, and leave this park to the last for some healing and rest.
