Join us for this small group day trip from Riga to Cesis, one of the oldest towns in Latvia. A medieval gem, the town of Cesis draws visitors for its rich heritage and culture, historical monuments, and natural environment perfect for outdoor activities. It is also home to many natural treasures, including the stunning Gauja National Park. Despite a history of war, the old town has remained almost unchanged. Charming ruins of medieval castles invite you to explore the history and feel the medieval spirit!

We will pick you up from your hotel in the morning, and drive to Cesis. Once we arrive, we’ll first take you on a city tour to see such highlights as the City Hall, Merchant House, Princess House, and St. John’s Church. Hundreds of years of history are visible not only on the streets but also in the Cesis Castle complex, which we will also visit. Inside the medieval castle, you will receive a lantern and climb up its towers!

After the tour, nature is waiting! We’ll take you on a short hike (about 6km) to see the beautiful red sandstone cliffs along the ancient Gauja River Valley and enjoy the wonderful views, fresh air, and natural environment.

At the end of the tour, we’ll bring you back to your hotel in Riga.
