How about turning a walk in a park into a time-twisting journey through Riga’s history? Follow in the footsteps of our local creator, an expat who fell in love with the city and wants to share her enthusiasm with you. On this self-guided walk, now maintained by Zanda & Iveta, you’ll discover the most charming green spots of three (!) stunning parks. Along the way, solve fun location-based riddles and learn about historical figures that shaped Latvia, reclaiming the country’s independence from the Soviet Union, and… well, let’s keep it a surprise!

This playful walk across Riga sharpens your senses and encourages you to appreciate the most wonderful – and often hidden – details around you. Whether you know Riga or just start exploring here, this experience gives you a perspective on discovery that will inspire your curiosity wherever you go next.

We know you’ll love our experiences, but if this is your first, rest assured - you can solve up to three riddles and still get a full refund, or in case of the Wonder Walks - all subscription plans come with one week free trial. See our T&Cs here.
