During the Middle Ages, around the castle and church of Cēsis, close to each other compacted on all sides, were formed narrow, winding streets with craftsmen and traders’ houses. Although the war and countless fires led to a total loss of Cēsis medieval buildings, the city’s historic centre and its medieval layout to this day have been retained almost unchanged. Currently, you can see the majority of the old town historically and architecturally outstanding buildings, such as St. John’s Church, built at the end of the 13th century, City hall, Merchant house, Harmony house and Princess house. On the first floors of these and other buildings in the Old town, there are small boutiques and a wide variety of workshops filled with creativity. Houses are interspersed with unique courtyards and squares.

Way back to Riga. End of the tour in Riga.
I Highly recommend to do this tour when you are in Latvia! Very nice people and a great experience! 10/10
It was a very nice experience! The people were very nice and the dogs were too. Thank you very much for this lovely day!
We booked the husky sledding, with Jans as our guide. He was great took time to point out various points as we drove to our destination in Cesis, we arrived at the destination where we met with the husky team and their beautiful huskies, we had time to meet each huskie and learn and see their personalities. We were given a detailed instruction on how to steer and mush the dogs. It was a fantastic 5-6km run one way and then swapped with my partner for the return. Its safe to say i enjoyed every minute of todays trip and cannot recommend them enough for this experience. Thank you so much for the memories. And of course to Jans for showing us parts of latvia we may of missed had he not shown us!
We throughly enjoyed the Husky Sledding Tour, our guide Jans was amazing, he is very proud and passionate about his country sharing lots of knowledge with us about the history of Latvia and historic monuments, he took us to many different stops along the way and gave us a full authentic Latvian experience. The Husky Tour is a must do, it’s so much fun with amazing scenery, the people that own the dogs are lovely and you can see the dogs are well cared for. Jans gave us some great recommendations of places to eat and drink which we also enjoyed, the tour with Jans was like being with an old friend and he puts so much effort into taking photos/making a video which is sent across after the tour. Thank you Jans!
The highlight of your Riga trip!
Total joy! An amazing day full of endorphins cuddling the beautiful huskies and then getting pulled through the snowy landscape by six very excited and keen huskies.
Jans picked us up from our airbnb in the centre of Riga and drove us deep into the Latvian countryside for about 1h 10min. We could pet the huskies and take photos before the ride. The sledding took about 20-25 min. Afterwards, we enjoyed more time with the huskies, had a cup of hot tea and tried a few local spirits and snacks with Jans and the dog owners.
On the way back to Riga, Jans was also eager to show us some other parts of the Lativan countryside on the way back and we stopped by really lovely giftshops, caves, and other hidden gems. We didn’t quite have time to stop by Sigulda as we were in a rush but he also offered to do that.
Overall, a really fun experience, definitely worth the price and taking out a day from your trip to Riga!
