Riga is the Latvian city that is so beautiful it has even been deemed as a UNESCO world heritage site. Located at the mouth of Daugava River and on the gulf of Riga, the stunning city also doubles as a perfect destination for water loving students. Any students on a class or society trip to Riga can anticipate activities like water rafting, canoeing, water tube riding and even a dolphin aqua jetpack experience. Riga’s strategic location, not only sees it as a hotspot for students fond of water sports, it is also close to a famous bob sledding track which is perfect for those who want an alternative experience on the Riga student, class or society trip.
As aforementioned, Riga itself claims fame as a UNESCO world heritage site and when it is also the largest of the Baltic states, it is no surprise that your student, class or society trip will have no shortage of incredibly stunning landmarks to visit. Some intriguing landmarks include St.Peter’s Church and Freedom Monument while some awe inspiring museums to visit include the Museum of the Occupation of Latvia, the Latvian War Museum and the Latvian Museum of National History.
If you’re hoping for something more so physically stimulating, some of our extreme sports like bungee jumping, clay pigeon shooting, escape rooms, karting, laser tag, paintball, rock climbing and skydiving should definitely help to keep everyone on the Riga student, class or society trip entertained. When students can take day trips out to some incredible pistes during the winter, Riga also makes for a convenient launchpad for any skiing / snowboarding student clubs and societies.
A quick spin to a nearby national park is another popular activity for outdoors loving students when stunning lakes, white water and forests make for popular camping trips with lazy river activities and some astonishingly, stunning locations to pitch tents overnight.
The beauty of Riga doesn’t falter as night approaches either and when a series of rooftop, terrace bars are also popular camping spots to watch the sun go down, Riga caters to a maze of enticing nightclubs and late bars for after hours. Once voted as the top stag destination in Europe, student friendly venues like Studio 69 and La Roca are also known to spout out some enjoyable europop and dance music to cater to any taste. If you want to sample all that the enchanting city of Riga has to offer in a short space of time, a pub crawl of all of Riga’s finest is highly recommended.
