Peter's cave

A narrow gap in a red sandstone wall. The cave is 6.5 m/21 ft, deep, 2.2m/7ft wide and 5.3m/17 ft high. Legend has it that a farmer named Peter was hiding in this cave during the Swedish War.

The steep valley walls and deep ravines with their forested creek areas add to the charm and mountainous feel of the Gauja valley. The Vējupīte valley cuts the left bank of the Gauja uncovering impressive bedrock reveals, small waterfalls and a cave.

On the left side of Vējupīte River is a hidden cave named Peter’s cave.
