Practical information

Duration: 8 – 10 h

Start: Kolkasrags Information and Visitors center, 

Finish: Ģipka

Itinerary: Kolka – Melnsils – Pūrciems – Ģipka

Road surface: A hard sandy beach, a forest trail next to the pine trees washed into the sea

Difficulty level: 

Obstacles: You can wade across the brooks, the Melnsilupe River (a bridge around 1,3 km away from the sea) and the Pilsupe River (a bridge 0,3 km away) during low water.

Dangerous places: None

Good to know! Tents can be set up and campfires can be lit only in public rest areas designed for this purpose.

In case of strong NE and E winds, the coast may be bathed by the waves in some places. Then it is necessary to choose alternative forest trails. There are no ATMs in Kolka.

Alternatives: Between the Melnsilupe River and the Pilsupe River a forest road-trail stretches for 6 km alongside the sea.
