Booked in advance for €50,- each, 5 friends total of €250,-. This includes the hour drive back and forth from Riga city center. We each had 2 rides on the summer track which on the signs there one ride was €10,-. Let's say 2 for €15 as you go again immediately without getting out. So we paid €175,- for the taxi drive which isn't a fair price in Riga. The complete activity took us about 3 hours.

Turaida Castle

Reviewed By Bruce M - Sydney, Australia

Located a 5 minute drive out of Sigulda, it's quite an extensive complex with some interesting exhibits and stunning views from the top of the round turret over the surrounding countryside.
The only downside was that in early spring, about half the exhibits ( and the cafe) were closed which was a shame, but still worth the visit nonetheless.
Couple the visit with some hiking through the woods and a visit to the "caves" made this an excellent half day investment. There is a walking track loop out to Krimulda manor ( now a run down rehabilitation centre and not open. To the public) which takes about 3-4 hours and once the snow and ice have melted in mid spring, this would be one of the better hikes in the area through picture postcard scenery

This path is inside the national nature park and has wild animals inside it. The path allows you to enjoy some picturesque views, specially in the beginning there is a wonderful observation deck. As well there is tower on which is seen all treasury of Latvian Forests. The time spent there is good if you want to enjoy walk in forest with some interesting advantages as views and animals.

Castle of Livonian Order in Sigulda offers explicit and historically active journey within the everyday life of Livonian Order's brotherho

Reviewed By Jellybellydancer - Burscough, United Kingdom

There really isn't much to say about these ruins as there isn't much to see, very little is still standing and there wasn't much information about what anything was.
The tower has recently been renovated to include a viewing platform with wonderful views across the Gauja valley towards Tauraida castle, but there was little else to hold our interest.
We visited en route to Ligatne so it made a convenient break in the journey, but I would have been disappointed if we'd made a special trip to visit.

Aerodium

Reviewed By Danuta2812 - Taipei, Taiwan

If you ever wondered what is the feeling of floating in the air, here is your chance to enjoy it at Aerodium in Sigulda. The instructor was the nicest guy ever, he gave us lots of encouragements and answered all of our questions. The experience was sure one of a kind. Need to make a reservation tough, because if there are too many people looking forward to fly, you might have to wait an hour or two. We made a reservation upfront and everything happened right on time.

We stumble across this sculpture and admired the creativity that went into its design. It's amazing what one can do with various objects. It's on the way to the castle and should not be overlooked.
