This trip was more challenging than others because of the locations the organizers chose for us. How we handled the challenge, take a look at the pictures below.
Another project on an Estonian island? Sign me up!
The Rumpo peninsula is the habitat of unique and rare lichen communities and the only habitat of the curled snow lichen (Flavocetraria cucullata) in Estonia.
The InstaTrip Pt. 4, which is the one the article is going to be about, was organised by the Latvian travel agency again (meaning – the first one, to which I went and covered in my blog, was also organised by them).

During the #EUGreenWeek European countries participate in the project (find out more), also we – Latvians had something in mind. The Nature Conservation Agency (Latvian – Dabas aizsardzības pārvalde) partnering with World Wildlife Fund for Nature (WWF Latvia or Pasaules Dabas Fonds) did an interesting project for Saulkrasti White Dune conservation. Find out more below.
How to preserve the nature with non-traditional methods?
After the contest (which I should have covered here but didn’t) which was organised by the Pasaules Dabas fonds (WWF for Nature Latvia) and Tetra Pak Latvia, I received an email from the Turiba University. At first, I thought that it must be related to the contest in which I participated in. And as a matter of fact, it wasn’t. I must admit – this was the first time when University, reaches out for me to talk about the subject in which I am really interested in and I felt honoured to be recognised at all.
I was invited as a blogger and environmentalist
Had an awesome time with yet another hiking group!
Beautiful river, cliffs and nomadic vibes.
Around 18km in total.
