Thanks, Ainars, for your comments. It's being a fantastic trip.

When we were going to see the seals (actually sea lions), we had to wait for a guide to take a large group of Latvian tourists first!! So it can't be that far away!

Glad to hear You are lucky with Your trip! :)

About tourists from my country? Why not? Sure, it is not cheap trip like ones to our neibhour countries. /: After your comment I seek Internet agencies how available there are to arrange such trips at all. Found, than there are more than one travel agency who often do trips via London.

Meanwhile, I found a trip schedule which touches this Olgas mountains too. In local language this place are named Kata Tjuta. Right?

Good luck You ahead and I will try follow Your next uploads, when available!

With greetings from far away Lettland - ainars. :)
