Car route along the right bank of the Gauja with various natural and cultural-historical sights, including Sigulda county.

The route (between the right bank of the River Gauja and road A3) crosses the whole Gauja National Park in the direction from southwest to northeast. It covers the most excellent nature monuments, and most scenic spots. To diversify, the route includes also the most significant culture and history monuments, which are often closely related to the nature. For example, Ungurmuiža Manor Park is a significant place for several endangered species of Europe, while in the pond of Turaida Museum Reserve grass-snakes can be seen in spring having a tasty meal – the green frogs. Road pavement. Gravel roads in Vaidava–Sietiņiezis Rock vicinity. The rest of the route runs on asphalt.

Good to know! Following long rainy periods, the gravel road can be of poor quality at some places. Prior to the trip, check the working hours of museums and other sites. A visit to the local Tourism Information Centres is recommended (for information and local maps). The activity is at one’s own risk.
