Bobsleigh with the pros on Sigulda, the only Olympic-standard bobsleigh track in the Baltics. As the home of the Latvian Olympic Team, the 1,200 metre track is super professional and often hosts training sessions and big sports events.
The bobsled track has an epic fourteen curves and one bridge, and each descent in the bobsleigh can take three people. The speeds you can reach are mind-blowing – up to 115kph on ice and 4g around the final corner, covering up to 1km in 48 seconds. And, you are in safe hands as you hurtle down the track, as your instructor is an ex-Olympic team member.
This action-packed experience is not just about the exhilarating ride, you can see across the stunning Gauja national park and river. For an even more authentic experience, you could try a cup of hot Black Balzam, Riga's famous herbal liquor, whilst you take in the scenery and warm up, as the track can reach -25 in the cold months.
