Seven Forests and Swamp of the Witches
Departure from Riga on mini bus (about 50 minutes’ drive)
An all-day-long journey rich with adventures and impressions will lead you through the pine-tree forest to the ancient dunes, which are located between two swamps – the legendary Swamp of the Witches and the Green Swamp. The landscape is changing on every step. This hike includes some little traditional worshiping rituals of Nature, which old Latvian folk used to practice.
Various types of forests, magical swamps, fields and dark sloughs- an unbelievable variety in the one-day hike. A Lake with a bird-watching tower as an awesome place for a picnic. Food is always more delicious when prepared on the fire in the open Nature. Restaurants pale next to this kind of food! A pond-swamp of sulfur water – Is also on our way – open your mind for colorful and rich experience in diverse environment.
It will be only nature around us that will interact with our inner Universe, allowing us to feel like one and remind ourselves that we are part of nature not opposite of it. Our guides will show and teach how to discover Latvia and yourself. There is no bad weather – sunny, rainy, snow… It doesn’t matter as long as you are ready to stretch your comfort zone! We will walk approximately 22 km. Yes, it can be challenging, but it can also be a meditation of joy, beauty and awareness.
