The canal system in Riga was first built as a defensive feature beyond the cities walls and ramparts. By the end of the 1800’s the Riga’s defences had been pulled down and the canal was landscaped to fit into the grand parks that encircle Old Riga. Your kayaking tour will follow the canal around Old Riga and out onto the open river, allowing you to see Riga in a way most never do, passing under bridges and looking at the city from the inside outwards. Relaxing, fun and a great experience.
If you are lucky you will also bump into some of Riga’s more secretive residents – the Beavers! Yes it is true, Riga has a beaver problem! They are friendly enough – just try not to hit them with your paddles!
