Summer season

Near the Ski Center “Žagarkalns” in Cēsis, on the river bank of Gauja, we have equipped a tent and trailer campsite with a water tourist center. The campsite’s territory is large enough, so that the tourists may enjoy there time undisturbed. Rest or overnight stays are very pleasant as the camping is situated on the river bank and it is inside a natural undamaged environment.

For a leisure and safe trip along the Gauja we offer the hard-bottom rafts made of plastic tubes with the hard plywood bottoms which may hold a quite large group of people. The rafts are easy to row with two oars and are equipped with folding roofs, tables, benches and grills. Each water tourist is given a life vest for safety.

Canoe boats are the most popular sailing charters favoured by the water tourists both in our country and throughout Europe. A canoe has the optimal speed therefore a trip may not become boring, it slides easily through the water, is simple to paddle and quite safe.
