There seems to be a superlative for every lake in Latvia and this one is simply the deepest – Latvia's Baykal, so to say. About 25km northeast of Krāslava, the gracefully shaped elongated lake features a nice resort. Take Rte P161 leading to Dagda to reach Dridži, the perfect spot for families, featuring volleyball nets, tugboats, rafts and a lovely hillside dotted with wooden gazebos. Each cottage comes with a fully equipped kitchen. It is open year round.
