Enjoy a relaxing ride along the picturesque Gauja River, just outside Riga. No need for the hard labour involved in white water rafting, this chilled-out journey will see you calmly drifting past the tranquil forests and cliffs of the Gauja national park. Sit back in your large 12-seater inflatable raft as you float along, sipping on beers, soaking up the sun and admiring the views.

Don't let the picture fool you, this is entirely lazy rafting. We expected more excitement and some rapids but no, it was all the way lazy and chilled out. Great hangover cure but a bit boring. Fantastic scenery too but a long drive out that seemed kind of wasted

The picture does not look anything like the rafting that occurs. The river was very calm and was not white water. However, as I am not a confident swimmer this was a bonus for me! The only downside was the length of time it took to get to the activity and back, which takes up several hours.
