Lonely Planet review

Sigulda’s 1200m artificial bobsled track was built for the former Soviet bobsleigh team. Today, the track hosts a portion of the European luge championships every January. In winter you can fly down the 16-bend track at 80km/h in a five-person Vučko tourist bob , or contact Karīna at the Makars Tourism Bureau for the real Olympian experience on the hair-raising winter bob (ride per person 35Ls). Summer speed fiends can ride a wheeled summer sled (ride per person 6Ls; 11am-6pm Sat & Sun May-Sep) without booking in advance.
