Gungas is an Ethnographical holiday resort. We stay and dance in historical Latvian log houses, from the past century or even earlier. It is a place where time stands still. Gungas is located in a typical pine forest on the shore of Dūņezers Lake. It offers great relaxation and tranquility. The sea is 10 km away, and Riga is only 45 km away.
There are approximately 40 sleeping places available on site, so the group will be small.
We are welcome at the venue as of 16.00 on Friday 18/08. We leave the resort on Monday morning 21/08.
Group transport from Riga to the venue on Friday afternoon (16.00) will be organized by us. It is included in the event price. If you can not make it in time for the bus, we will also help organize individual transport if this would be needed.
