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.
