Hiking alongside the Amata river

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.

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!

InstaTrip Pt. 2 – Explorers

So basically, I had this idea to document a rare phenomenon of when the seashore departs and uncovers an interesting view all around the Latvian seashore. It last happened in 1986. The destination of the trip was the farthest northern point of Kurzeme – Kolka (region of Latvia) where this phenomenon is easiest to see. Kolka is a special place because it’s a meeting point of two seas that never mix – Gulf of Riga and Baltic sea.

Despite having little hope of success, I invited people on Facebook to join me on a trip and in just a few minutes we formed a group of four people – enough to fit in a car. We were ready for the next Instagram trip!
