Last year we discovered the spectacular valley of the Gauja river. This year we decided to listen to you and organise the hike in the early autumn when the sun is still warm, but nature is beginning to cover in gold.
The new hike area is known as Latvia’s Switzerland – therefore it is the most challenging Trektours hike. Gauja Hike will let you experience the mountains in the Baltics!
This time we will meet you at the new start and finish location – one of the most beautiful and most visited cities in Latvia, the ancient capital of Livonia – Cesis.
See you in the Baltic mountains!

All the routes are circular – you will start and finish at the same place. No matter which route you choose, the old town of Cesis, its medieval castle and beautiful park will be part of your hike. No route is suitable for a hike with a stroller.
The main highlight of this route is the Cīrulīšu nature trail, where you can explore the evolution of the Gauja river since the ice age. By choosing this route, you will be able to see the impressive 10 m high and 140 m long Cīrulīšu cliffs, which are also called mirror because they reflect on the crystal-clear water of the oxbow lake. You will also have a chance to visit the man-made Ligavas Cave, built during the Livonian War.
The main highlight of this route is Ērgļi cliffs. It is one of the most beautiful places in the Gauja National Park. Being 130 meters long and 22 m high, these are the largest cliffs of the entire Gauja Valley. The scenery takes your breath away not only while you stand on top of them, but also when you get down and look at them from below.
If you want to see everything, this is the best choice. Cīrulīšu Nature Trail, historic Liga Cave, spectacular Cīrulīšu cliffs – all of these highlights are waiting for you together with the spectacular Ērgļi cliffs.
