We will pick you up from your hotel to drive to the quad bike track, which is located in a forest, 40 km from Riga. Your Riga quad bike off-road adventure will start with choosing the right equipment. You will get a helmet, goggles, boots, motocross pants, motocross jersey and Enduro jacket. Please keep in mind that the Enduro jacket won`t completely protect in case of heavy rain. Then you will read the rules and sign that you take responsibility in the case you damage the quad bike due to ignoring the safety rules, for instance not keeping the distance between your quad bike and the one in front of you.
You get the introduction to quad bikes and the instructions of driving. If you decide to do the off-road ride through forest roads, paths, and small obstacles, then first 5-10 minutes you will drive on a circuit track. That way, you learn the techniques to control the quad bike, so later you can put your newly gained handling skills into practice. No matter if you drive 5-10 minutes on a track, before heading into the forest or have booked a 30 minutes drive on a circuit track, the instructor will spend time near the track to see how you are doing and give you advice if he sees that your driving skills can be improved. We suggest the first few laps to drive slowly to get to know better the quad bike and how to handle the steering. Once you do that, you can increase the speed to enjoy the most of Riga quad biking.
This tour combines the thrill of riding a quad bike over challenging and varied terrain as well as allows you to get out into the tranquil scenery of Latvia and explore unspoiled areas of natural beauty. If you go for a forest drive, for the first 5-10 minutes you will be practising driving skills on a circuit track. The rest of the time you will drive in a forest, following your instructor and keeping the distance between each other.
For the drive through the forest, we can offer 5 quad bikes. What happens if you are with a group of more than 5 people? You will be divided into groups of up to 5 people. While the first group is in a forest the rest of you can either be taken to a Bobsleigh and Luge track for either Olympic Bobsleigh; Skeleton Bobsleigh; Soft Bobsleigh rides (available from the end of October until the end of March) or Summer Bobsleigh rides (available from the beginning of May until the end of September). The Bobsleigh activity must be booked in advance.
If you do not want to do the Bobsleigh rides, you can make a BBQ near the track while waiting for your turn. There are a table, benches and a mangal (barbeque) to grill chicken wings, chicken breasts, sausages, shashlik, steak, etc. You can buy all the groceries by yourselves (please note that you also need charcoal and flammable liquid) or send us the list of food/drinks and we will buy them for you. Please note, the beer or any other alcohol will be allowed only for those who have already done the quad bike activity.
Another option you can choose is 30 minutes of racing around the rugged circuit track. Like with the forest quad biking, also in this case, if you want, you can make a barbeque while watching how your friends drive on a track. In the case of rain, you can stay under the roof in a canopy, equipped with tables and chairs and overlooking the track.
This activity is very often is booked by the couples as you do not need the previous experience and there is an instructor all the time with you (if you book forest quad biking) helping you if there is any need. The drive through the forest, overtaking many obstacles will guarantee that you have a fun and memorable day spent together. After the quad bike activity, you can continue your adventure by visiting Sigulda city which has medieval castles and many hiking options.
Nevertheless, the bobsleigh track is the most popular tourist attraction in Sigulda, as it offers a unique activity you most likely won`t be able to find in your home country. You can visit the Tourism information centre of Sigulda, get a map of the city and hiking routes and ask your driver to drop you off near some tourist attraction. At the end of the day, you can catch a train from Sigulda to arrive right at the city centre of Riga.
If you are a group of friends and are looking for some activity that includes motorsports, then there shall be 4x4 Riga off road drive, outdoor go karting, Fiat 126 Riga city race, Volvo 740 rallycross and drive with a quad bikes on your radar. If you like to feel the adrenaline of overtaking ditches, steep hills, mud, sand and puddles of water then quad biking is the right choice. The closest feeling you would get is from 4x4 off road jeep drive with the difference that you sit in a vehicle while with a quad bike you feel the wind blow, feel the forest, the sounds in it and are much closer to nature. The Riga quad biking activity you can combine with the visit of Sigulda city for bobsleigh rides, hiking, Tarzans adventure park, Aerodium vertical wind tunnel, canoeing and many other activities.
• Please take your ID card (can be a passport, driver’s license, Student`s card or a National ID card) with you as you will have to read and sign conditions of use of the quad bike.
