Sietiņiezis (White sandstone cliff)

Add to route

The biggest white sandstone outcrop in Baltics – 15 m high and 400 m wide. In the sun it warms up and keeps warmth, hence, wild bees have chosen it as their home, creating the unique honeycomb in the walls of the outcrop. There is a well-established nature trail with several viewing platforms. Places for picnic are available, as well as information stands and a parking lot.
 
The name of Sietiņiezis (fine - sieve rock) comes from the extensive serration of the rock. The rock has multiple extraordinary forms - caves, pillars, alcoves, a forming arch. It is considered to be one of the highest rocks in Latvia, an excellent viewing place is located at the highest point of Sietiņiezis Rock.
