Boat routes

Rivers, lakes and the sea are the oldest transportation lines to connect Latvia with closest and furthest countries. When there were no roads on the ground, travelling on water was common for merchants and raftsmen.

Salacgrīva district has always welcomed those who are friends with water and sailing and gives a chance for sailors to familiarize themselves with the district from the side of water  testing strenght and endurance. Here you can sail from east to west and from north to south. The main thing is – for sea sailing choose the right direction so that the wind is at your back, and when you sail in the Salaca, Svētupe or Vitrupe rivers, just pick the right starting and finishing point. Don’t miss your adventure on the waters!
