The Gauja River is the most beautiful river of Vidzeme and whole Latvia. The beautiful sandstone rocks on the banks of the Gauja and its adjoining rivers started formation before 370-300 million years during the Devonian era. The Gauja River tends to change its bottom rapidly. Therefore, it has gained the reputation of being deceitful. The bottom of the river is made of unconsolidated sand and gravel deposits, which move along with the torrent.
