Riga

Canal & Riverboat cruises

25 Jul 2018
A leisurely boat tour of the River Daugava or Riga canal is a must when in town, but unfortunately this is only possible from April - October as both waterways usually freeze over in winter.

Canal boats Climb aboard a unique 100-year-old wooden launch (or a replica) and take a one-hour tour of the city from an unusual perspective - the Riga Canal and Daugava river. You can start your journey at Bastion Hill and the boat trip takes an hour before it returns to your original embarkation point. Price: adults €18, children (5 - 14) €9, children under 5 free. More information at www.rigabycanal.lv.

Riverboats Take a riverboat cruise on the Daugava and enjoy unique views of Old Riga and the left bank. An hour tour usually costs around €10/person and snacks and beverages, not to mention toilets, are also available. Choose from half a dozen ships that depart roughly every hour or so from 11.novembra krastmala. Pedal boats and row boats on the Riga canal can also be rented by Bastion Hill and near Kr. Barona for €3 - 5/20min.
