This is a large national park west of Riga. We came here for the bog walk. It is very well laid out with boards all round the 3 km or so walk over the bogs. There are board with interesting information but surprisingly no birdlife. Well worth doing if you are in the area.

It's very beautiful trail with a wooden path and it's surrounded by a lot of various swamp plants, little trees and different kinds of birds. It is worth visiting. In the middle of trail there is lookout tower witch provides perfect view of surrounding swamps and plants.

We spent two days in the National park. Beautiful forests, nicely landscaped trails and observation towers. Too bad the trails for hiking are short (everyone goes by car?). We walked from Milzkalne to Kemeri. The big disadvantage and warning: "Recreation Centre" Valguma pasaule- It offers a place for a tent for 11 euros. The place is not suitable for tent,... More

We spent a half day in Kemeri. We prebooked a guide for our tour. She customized a tour for us with focus on birds and bird watching. We walked maybe some 3 kilometers and she showed us nature and told stories about birds there. After that we went to Kemeri Sanatorium, which is unique and beautiful building, but unfortunately it...

Feels like you are transformed to 1930. Still feels the charm of that time... Beautiful an peaceful place. seems like 21th century hasn't got there yet. If you are planning to go there plan at least 4 hours for a walk and enjoying the sites.

If you are like me and like taking photos or different plants and animals and walking in the wilderness without risking to get lost, go there. If you are a bird watcher you will not be disappointed.

A trip here was a highlight. A really beautiful and peaceful area. The area is really remote and when arriving at Kemeri train station you should take the bus (probably waiting) directly to the info center a couple of kilometers north of the station. Here you will get all the info you need for a nice day out. (One of... More

Not everybody coming to Latvia for a short holiday are aware that not far from Jurmala beaches there's a National Park which offers landscapes and colors similar to what you can see in a savana even, in a way it differs, You can walk on wooden paths through the swamps and admire the wilderness and the silence of this quite...

Nice walking at the nature. At summer you should avoid to be there at late evening, because of moskitos.
