Springtime Boating in Dviete Floodplain


Experience a boat ride along the floodplain of the Dviete River. The Dviete water-meadows nature park is among the largest and best-preserved examples of natural water-meadows in Europe. With the Daugava floodwaters flowing into the ancient Dviete valley, the water level in the lower reaches of the river can exceed the level of low-water periods by over 6 metres. The most breathtaking views of the Dviete water-meadows can be seen during spring floods, when the waters from the Daugava River cover the ancient valley for up to 20 kilometres. Keep an eye out for migratory birds as well as wild horses and cattle.
