Žagarkalns-Vasara > RAFT RENTAL



For a leisure and safe trip along the Gauja we offer the hard-bottom rafts made of plastic tubes with the hard plywood bottoms which may hold a quite large group of people. The rafts are easy to row with two oars and are equipped with folding roofs, tables, benches and grills. Each water tourist is given a life vest for safety.


A rafts lenght is 6m, width - 3m, one raft freely holds up to 15 people. Travellers may sit on the convenient benches or at a table, take sunbaths or stroll along a deck. Rafts are very stable and safe. Travelling by a raft you don’t need to tie up at the river bank in order to eat, for example. On a raft you can grill, cook and eat at a table. Journey with a raft is comparatively slow as it has the speed of the stream, thought making your travel convenient and stressless.



Rafts are popular for the one-day journeys among families with children wishing to feel secure and cosy on the river, and among bunches of friends having decided to celebrate some event in an off-beat atmosphere as well as tourists having planned to spend a day on the river leisurely and slowly enjoying landscapes of the Gauja.


One of the main advantages of the rafts is a folding roof. Travellers can be sure that, in case of sudden rain, they will be able to continue the journey not searching for a shelter on the bank. In view of changeable weather of our summers this is an essential plus when you are planning a journey along the Gauja.


If there is such a wish or need, a raft may be steered by a guide who will also accompany you during the journey. It is an additional service which costs 35 EUR per day.
