Daugava river kayak tour

My last evening in Latvia.. a 15k kayak tour down the river Daugava which runs through Riga! I had a hard time deciding wether to take my camera or not I can tell you! We started at a jetty close to where I was staying and proceeded down river along the old industrial sector. Really cool but I did have a bit of difficulty paddling in a straight line haha, the kayaks we had were doubles and didn’t have a rudder like the last one I’d used.

We then progressed into a ship yard and got close and personal with a few of them before sneaking between two in dry dock and ducking under a foot bridge to make it into a beautiful lake as the sun was setting. Magic!
