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.
I have joined many hiking groups before, but this was my first time hosting one.
It all started with an innocent Instagram story post where I invited people to join me on a hiking adventure. It took me by a surprise how many people applied.
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.
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.
Had an awesome time with yet another hiking group!
Beautiful river, cliffs and nomadic vibes.
Around 18km in total.
The Amata river is considered to be the fastest flowing and the wildest river for boating in Latvia. It’s not recommended for amateurs to boat there with no professional in charge. So, every adrenaline seeker and adventurer who reads this article, keep that in mind when visiting Latvia! But this time the article won’t be about boating but instead about hiking along the Amata river. Slippery trail, challenging but nevertheless – awesome!
Had a really great time with these awesome folks!
This time we held our Wild Life Fund (Pasaules Dabas Fonds – WWF/PDF) meeting in a Latvian forest house called “Ķemeri – Forest house”. To be exact, the seminar was about volunteering movement improving in Latvia, Estonia and Finland. The participants came not only from these countries but we were also joined by a Hungarian exchange student and a French student from Homo Ecos project.
