Botanical garden's Light in the Dark
Though usually the University of Latvia's Botanical garden is open from spring to autumn, this year, on its centenary, it invites visitors for walks during the dark and cold time. The garden is open every night from 17:00 to 21:00 for a "miraculous walk in the dark".

Viesata River Bends
The nature trail of the Viesata River on the Tukums-Jaunpils road will appeal more to those looking for a longer, more difficult hike. The length of the trail is about 10 kilometers, leading uphill and downhill along the river, crossing it, and leading onto an island in the middle. This trail is especially beautiful in winter and spring, and has several nature objects along the way.
