Horse ranch „KLAJUMI”
That is nice that you are interested in the horse ranch "Klajumi. We are proud that there is almost 100 years history of the farm "Klajumi". In 1936 with the governmental support to strengthen the Latvian eastern border, a young farmer, Janis Stabulnieks, established a farm near the Latvian-Belarussian border and gave it the name "Klajumi" - in translation "fields" - because he did himself made fields free from brushes and built new brick buildings.
Nowadays both old and new generations are working, saving culture and historical heritage and taking care of nature environment values. The landscape is hilly, but very scenery and tourism is more appropriate than agriculture in this region, located in the nature park of Daugava river valley and close to Latvian-Belarussian border. Taking into mind the love the owners of "Klajumi" possessed to horses, nature environment, historical conditions and traditions, in 1998 "Klajumi" started its business as a horse ranch.
Horse ranch "Klajumi" is not a riding centre, sport club or just an accommodation place. There are harmonized, landscaped riding tours organized on smart Latvian, Lithuanian and Belarussian horses. You are welcome to ride even without any riding experience. Nice guest houses for accommodation, traditional dishes of Latgale region and scenery nature will make your tour unforgettable.
In 2007 "Klajumi" was awarded the main award in the Latvian national competition for Ecotourism businesses and an award as the most friendly tourism farm in Latgale region. "Klajumi" has received as well the Latvian eco-label - "Green Certificate" symbolizing nature - friendly farming, saving and promoting culture and historical heritage, using nature-friendly building materials, saving nature resources. "Green Certificate" guarantees clean environment, healthy food, silence, nature, rural surroundings.
In 2007 farm "Ķemeri", enclosed by old apple - trees, has been purchased - homestead of inspiration, dreams and love. This homestead has built in 1932 in accordance with Vidzeme region architecture style by organ - player for his son Boguslavs Lapinskis. In 2011 "Ķemeri" has been opened for recreation at old style guest house and smoke sauna.
In 2010 a new farm "Krasti" has joined "Klajumi" properties - homestead enclosed by fragrant silent pine and spruce woods, springs and meadows, build at 1916. As a symbol for previous owners 3 oak trees have been planted by father Karlis Redobs to his 3 sons: Fridim, Eriks and Janis. Let"s imagine the morning view from the "Krasti" - look down from the hillside - misted Daugava river, on the other side of river - sun shined woods till the view of skyline ends... un horse, amazed on a doe, suddenly jumped near his nose, snorts: "Prrr - surprise!"
Enjoy together with us unrepeatable miracles of Daugava river valley beauties, strengthen your heart, fill your hearts and leave your footprints here!
You are welcome in horse ranch "Kajumi"!
