Gauja National Park

Gauja National Park was established in 1973, and it was the Latvia’s first national park. Gauja National Park also includes the primeval valley of the Gauja River and together with its tributaries it forms a particularly original landscape.

Covering 91745 hectares, most of it is thickly forested, interspersed with rivers; the national park offers good opportunities for tourism and recreation. Canoeing and rafting is popular, as are cycling, horse riding, and bird and animal watching. With around 900 plant species, 149 different birds and 48 varieties of wild animals it is a nature lover’s paradise.
