Red cliffs at Salaca

The Red Rocks of Salaca are a sandstone cliff that stretches for more than 400 metres.
The Red Rocks of Salaca are located near the Iron Bridge in Mērnieki. It is a sandstone cliff that stretches for more than 400 m. The cliff is not high - only about 10 metres - but it is high enough to dazzle with its beauty.. On both banks of the Salaca, at least 3 km further downstream from the Red Rocks, there are some sandstone outcrops - on the right bank there is a cluster of rock outcrops and the Upeskalna Rocks, a little further - the Zvīguļi Rocks. After 2.8 km, the 150 m long and 4-5 m high Junči cliffs appear, then the Rostu cliffs with some small caves and outcrops.

To better enjoy these beautiful cliffs, we recommend a boat trip along the Salaca River from Mērnieki to Salacgrīva.

There is a recreation area by the Red Rocks of Salaca, there are 5 shelters with tables, several fireplaces and tents for overnight stays.

The recreation area is managed by the association "SALACKRASTI Fishing Club" and the fishing association "Ūdensroze".
