Before hand, we wondered if, in this tiny country, there was navigable rivers that was long enough to undertake a worthwhile canoe touring trip. Say, for more then a week.

After ward, we realize that Latvia has a rich canoe touring potential, which is largely unknow abroad.

As far as we're concerned, we've largely got what we've been looking for: that's paddling on mavelous quite rivers, camping in the wild, free about our course and timing (as a matter of fact, the only deadline was the flight ticket to go back home), and free of worry about canoe and gears.
