The host will take visitors through the garden to show and tell them about the plants and their uses. The excursion will end with a tasting of healthy green smoothies made from the plants in the garden.
  • Depart Avotiņi herb garden for travel to Sidrabiņi country pub. The pub is located approx. 15 km from Avotiņi and the journey takes approx. 20 min.
  • Lunch at Sidrabiņi. This family-run pub is located near to the Riga–Tallinn road. It is a renovated historical wooden building. The owners have a meat processing facility next to the pub, so there are always fresh and tasty meals on the menu made from smoked meat products. Smoking is a traditional Latvian method for preserving and preparing food. The meat (usually pork, but others too) is treated with spices (salt, pepper, garlic and others) and smoked on wood. The pub serves traditional Latvian foods.
