Glamping is a new word in outdoor recreation. You are in the middle of the forest, having breakfast overlooking the lake, cooking barbecue. At the same time, you live in comfortable conditions in a bungalow with a stylish interior, relax in an open-air jacuzzi and sleep on white sheets.
I present to you the top camping and glamping selection of from Anna Greenwald. She personally traveled all these places and wrote detailed reviews in her blog. I highly recommend her Instagram if you are going to travel around Latvia.
By the way, Anna, like me, travels together with her husband and a dog. Therefore, almost all the places on this list are equally suitable for a romantic weekend and traveling with a pet.
Location: Ostmalas iela 12, Pāvilosta
Glamping consists of 6 houses standing on the water. Each house has its own yacht parking, terrace, kitchen and 4 sleeping places. But the most important thing is the stylish interior design and the river view. The campsite is only for the summer season.
On weekends, the house can be booked for at least 2 nights, on weekdays for one (85 euros / night, supplement for a dog 5 euros / night).
2. Senču Sils
Location: Garkalne, Latvia
A unique holiday house is located on a small island 15 minutes drive from Riga. The main thing that distinguishes this glamping from others is its unique design. The exterior of the house is designed in the form of a rock, and the interior is striking in its lightness: white tones, beautiful wooden furniture. There is a small beach 200 meters from the island. You can rent a SUP and a jet ski, and there is a spa center with a swimming pool on the territory of the complex.
A night in the house will cost from 130 to 230 euros at different times of the year (without breakfast).
3. Two Black Cabins
Location: Maija iela, Pabaži, Sējas novads
Cozy house overlooking the river 40 minutes away from Riga. Designed for 2-4 people. The house has everything you need: toilet, shower, refrigerator, dishes, stove, kettle, brazier and barbecue. The interior is just awesome: a spiral staircase, designer cups, an antique gramophone and, of course, an atmospheric fireplace. An outdoor barrel with forest views can be ordered for a fee.
A very popular place. Be prepared for the fact that you need to book cabins in advance. Of the minuses – the proximity to the road, you can hear the cars passing by.
Price per night from 130 euros (depending on the season). Dog supplement – 10 EUR / night.
Website link. You can reserve a house here, through Instagram, or through airbnb.
4. Glamping DiDille
Location: Unnamed Road, Drustu pagasts

Despite the flimsy design of the bubble, it will be equally comfortable in it both in winter and in summer. Inside there is everything you need: 4 beds, a kitchen, a bathroom. But the main feature is, of course, the opportunity to watch the stars while lying on the bed.
An outdoor hot tub can be ordered at an additional cost.
Prices vary depending on the season. On average, it is 125 euros / night.
Location: Ziedlejas Gaujmaļi, Sigulda
The owners call this spa hotel a place of power and unity with nature. This is perhaps the perfect place to reboot. To begin with, there is no connection here and there is no WIFI. Several houses (for 2-4 people) with panoramic windows and a view of the lake have been built on the territory. Inside there is everything for a comfortable stay: tea, coffee, bathroom, board games. You can also visit the bath complex, the menu offers various spa rituals and ablutions.
A night at the hotel will cost 100 euros. The downside is that you can’t take a pet here.
