Active leisure

If you are among those who love to spend their leisure time actively, in Latvia you will never feel bored. Here you can find adventure parks, horse riding, sailing, sport activities, orienteering, skydiving and even such entertainment as flying in the vertical wind tunnel that is not found anywhere else but only  in Latvia!

If you are tired of lounging in hotel and your body longs for action, then one or another opportunity of leisure activities is available just at your fingertips. Just make some steps out of the hotel restaurant. You can start with a modicum and go for a little walk (to look at environs of Sigulda or to stroll along the nature trails of Ligatne, or you can bike tour, or enjoy horse riding – a lot of farmsteads near Riga and all over the Latvia offer you such types of leisure activities.

You can also try something more extreme. For example, adventure parks will let you feel like Tarzan overcoming a wide variety of obstacles in cords suspended in trees. Latvia has several adventure parks, some of which are even near the centre of Riga – „Mežakaķis” in Mežaparks or "High Rope Park" in Jaunmarupe.

Orienteering sport is a very popular entertaining activity in Latvia. But, for the enthusiasts of wind sports, Latvia is the place to expand.

The wind and waves storming in the seaside of Kurzeme is the paradise for windsurfers and kaitsurfers. Also the biggest lakes of Latvia are the favourites of sailing sport lovers. For example, you can find several sailing sports facilities offering active recreation for any interested person on the banks of Kisezers in Riga.

If you want to jump with a parachute – here you are! Such possibilities are provided by the small Latvian airfields, such as Spilve airport in Riga, or airports in Jelgava, Daugavpils. You will get particularly sharp feelings from rubber-jumping. The bravest people can try out such activity on the Funicular cable car of Sigulda (in height of 43 meters) during summer season each Friday, Saturday and Sunday, but the vertical wind tunnel "Aerodium" is a completely new entertainment. Feel free like a bird and enjoy the free flight!
