During the segway tour we enjoyed the stories about the history of Riga.
After that we spend the rest of the day and evening with Toms. We had a drink on the terras, visit a hockeygame and had a bite to eat. Toms recommended some great places in the City and made our stay in Riga so much more fun!

Brilliant way to see night time Riga
I would highly recommend this activity. Our guide was excellent and great with me and my friend who had some navigation issues at first with the kayak but once we got the hang of it then it was great. You are picked up from St. Peter’s and given a full explanation about the kayak and where you will go. I felt really safe during the whole tour and in control of the kayak. We saw Riga in a completely different light and got to see beavers along the canal. My one thing I would say is if you are not interested in kayaking or think you will tire easily then this may not be the trip for you. My friend had never kayaked before and has no upper body strength whatsoever and she found it hard.
You should definitely add this to your to do list whilst in Riga.
Highlight of the Trip
My experience with the Night Kayak Tour through Riga's canals was one of the highlights of my trip to the city. Fresh air, a good workout, great company, and some notes on the city's history made the experience memorable.

The tour is friendly towards beginner and new kayakers. Keep in mind that the tour does take a couple hours, so be prepared for an arm workout. That being said, the pace of the tour adjusts to the speed of the participants, so there is no pressure to race through.

All in all, I would highly recommend Riga Night Kayak Tour to anyone looking for a unique tour of Latvia's capital.
magical experience
Well organised Really good instruction. Interesting snippets of history and stories. Seeing the city by night is actually different experience really enjoyable. Our group was 11 people and 1 guide. We were in double or triple canoes. The guide was very experienced and kept the group together. We were given drybags and lifejackets and taken back to the drop off point highly recommend it. We were experienced canoists and the evening was perfect the river was totally still no wind.
Daugava and Riga canals at night!
This is a chance to explore the old city's perimeter on a boat, and it's clearly illustrative of the medieval maritime city's life while being a thrilling adventure. This was my first kayaking in the night, and the lit canals are a great photo op. The tour guide was a very experienced hand and very accommodative. It was a great experience, thanks!
Fantastic experience
After spending a few days seeing the sites of Riga during the day, getting to see them at nighttime and on a kayak was a brilliant experience. Guide was really good at giving a quick update on how to use the paddle and generally some important safety tips. Their knowledge of the city was really good as well. Travelling across the Daugava and up the main canal of Riga was really good fun and gives the city a new perspective. One note of caution is that there were loads of mosquitoes at the boat house so look to go protected or use some deet/mosquito spray in advance. I would still highly recommend this trip though.
