The Vidzeme coast.

Section 28. Lauči - Tūja.

Practical information

Length: 15 km

Duration: 5 – 7 h

Start: Lauči. Near the sea: 

Finish: Tūja before the estuary of the Zaķupīte River, next to 

Itinerary: Lauči – Lembuži – Tūja

Road surface: Gravel, sand, stones of different sizes, pebbles.

Difficulty level: 

Obstacles: You can wade across the Liepupe River during low water (there is a bridge around 0,7 km away from the sea). The other rivulets (brooks) can be waded in.

Dangerous places: The sandstone outcrops are composed of an unconsolidated and unstable material, which is why it is not safe to approach them from the top and the bottom or to crawl into the caves washed out by the waves.

Good to know! The stones overgrown with algae are slippery. A lot of stones “move”. You will need suitable (closed) footwear and walking poles for support.

Alternatives: Lembuži Village and Tūja are connected by a small forest road stretching across the upper part of the coast (2,5 km) that can be used in case of strong wind. Vigorous walkers can combine this section with the one from the previous day and start in Saulkrasti.
