Recreation

Pastaigas

Walks, bike rides, skiing

Those who are tired from the city rush may find some peace in longer walks through the forest or hiking to one of the most unique and energetic places in Latvia – the source of 80 springs or castle mound of Mazsālijas. The area is full of wonderful views, and the charm of Courland here may be found on every step regardless of the season. 

When walking or riding a bike through the nature trails, you can meet the local residents: deer, wild boars Hansel and Gretel, or guests from the bird and animal world like black storks and others.

In the summers you may enjoy the beautiful scenery of the guesthouse by taking bike, boat, or catamaran rides, while in the winter you can enjoy the snow covered fields, forests, and tree-tops on ski trips. If you don’t have your own equipment, we will help you to rent one.

Work Therapy

The ones tired of the city rush and dust may set their minds free from troubles and worries and find connection with nature by enjoying an interesting type of meditation and taking part in physical work activities: 

  • Garden works (weeding, seeding, fruit and berry picking),
  • Potato harvest,
  • Landscaping (lawn mowing, raking of leaves, cleaning of deer paddock),
  • The big cleanup of fish ponds.

We create individual work therapy programs which will easily allow you to forget the daily stress. The work therapies are available to adults only.
