Your life river and you in there

With Valdis Vanags (Latvia)

Dates and time: 17.06. 9:00 - 18.06.17:00

Location: Starting point - Cēsis, finish - Sigulda (location will be specified)

Price: 260 Eur

Solo Canoe Adventure Therapy Program is a unique way to experience one of Latvia's most beautiful places - Gauja National Park.

It is going to be unique because meanwhile enjoying the amazing views, you will have the opportunity to learn from a professional how to paddle in a solo canoe.

We will provide you with the possibility to experience individual experiences while being in a group. To make your experience even more valuable, the guides will use adventure therapy methods to help you link your experience on the river with your current life situation - struggles, questions, changes.

We believe that the most valuable adventures are not only about the adrenalin but about the changes that happen in you - thoughts, emotions, beliefs. Combine the possibility of having an adventure in nature and having time and the tools for your personal growth.
