Alūksne is special with a fact, that all four seasons can be enjoyed here with confidence! In the summer season, Lake Alūksne and Castle island (Pilssala) turns into a real idyll for lovers of relaxing recreation. It is so great to catch the sun and the waves of the lake, wind and speed, positive emotions or going for a refreshing walk.
Resting on Lake Alūksne – it can be an exploratory adventure on Raft “Kaija” or Boat “Marienburg”. It can be a relaxing stay together, drive by Paddle boat around the island and watching the bird families, living in the lake. It can be a romantic date, rowing to the Lovers island “Hat”-wrapped in legends. Maybe it will be a new experience for someone learning to row a kayak. For adrenanaline- drive on a motorboat or jet ski! Swimming in Lake Alūksne provides real refreshment. A swimming area is located near the Summer cafe, picnic area and next to the kids playground.
