I came here with a friend during winter in December. We arrived shortly after sunrise and the ambience was simply ethereal. It was especially pretty as the swamp and wooden path/ bridges were covered in a light sheen of snowflakes. I would really recommend taking the longer route when you're on the wooden path as you'll pass by a lookout... More

I go to this park about once a week for nature hikes and photographing birds and small mammals. It is a lovely area and well maintained. There are trails, wooden walkways through the swamp and some towers for seeing above the trees. All very nice. I recommend this for anyone interested in a nice nature walk.

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.
