Aerial Cableway in Sigulda

Opened in 1969, this aerial cableway is the only one of its kind in the Baltic states. It was built in cooperation between Sigulda and Chiatura, a city in Georgia.

The ride that lasts but a few minutes reveals a rapidly changing landscape on the slopes of the River Gauja valley, once carved by a glacier, a scenic view on the Turaida Castle, the bridge across the Gauja, the Krimulda manor house, and the Bobsled and Luge Track.

The Bungee Jumping Club of Latvia offers an opportunity to jump off the cable car.
