We also suggest spending a few nights outside Riga. Our team will hand-pick a cozy rural guest house, elegant manor house, or low-key campsite. Should clients wish to enjoy an even closer connection to nature, we can arrange sleeping in tents or hammocks too.

For any experiences lasting longer than several hours, we'll plan meals, hosting them outside when possible and ensuring that they showcase the finest local ingredients, such as vitamin-rich birch sap and rhubarb in spring, and fresh-from-the forest berries and mushrooms in summer.

We'll always start by getting to know you

The first step is to discuss clients wishes, availability and any strict nos. We won't make any bookings before establishing them.
