Ever wondered what it must be like to hurtle down an Olympic bobsleigh track at speeds of up to 80 kmh? This unique and thrilling stag weekend activity is only available in Riga, but we must warn you that once the bob starts rolling down the track there is no turning back! Your bobsleigh will speed down the 1.4km track, descend 120m and include 10 butt-clenching turns and a bridge.
The track is open in both summer and winter with two different bobsleighs for each season. The summer descent is performed in a bobsleigh with wheels and piloted by an Olympic team instructor, whereas the winter bobsleigh is made of soft padding and rubber, does not require a pilot and can carry five people at a time. This is one of Riga's most popular stag weekend activities and will appeal to anyone with a need to speed.
