Gauja National Park is the most popular tourist destination in Latvia. Visitors are brought in by the glorious ancient valley of River Gauja with the largest Devonian sandstone rocks in Latvia and their mysterious caves. Pine forests mix with shadowy spruce glens and white stands of birch, the riverbanks are decorated by the silver of willows and the whiteness of blooming bird-cherries. The colours of the scenic meadows create bright contrast with mighty alleys. There is a myriad of hiking and bicycle trails, scenic views and camps for water tourists.
