Nature trail “Rīvas loki” (Riva bends)

The nature trail "Rīvas loki" starts at the Ulmale-Labrags Lutheran Church and winds 3 kilometres up and down the picturesque ancient valley of the Rīva River. The Rīva River here flows into a canyon-shaped ravine, the depth of which reaches 12 meters. The view opens up to countless river meanders and steep bank outcrops.

From the highway, a directional sign to the trail can be found following the directional sign to Ulmale-Labrags Lutheran Church, the beginning of the trail is marked with a specially designed trail name sign. The route continues in the direction away from the sea, and winds up and down along the picturesque ancient valley of the lower reaches of the Rīva River. During the walk you can see gorgeous scenery, and you can also see the diversity of plants; it is possible to see even a kingfisher or a black stork.

The total length of the trail is 8 km (linear, approximately 2.5 h in one direction):

  • First section: 3 km (one-way, marking - green stripe)
  • Second section: 3 km (one-way - marking - green dot)
  • Third section: 2 km (one-way, no markings - must follow the river shoreline)
