One of the most popular swamp trails in Latvia that offers a fabulous walk through one of the greatest raised bogs in Latvia. Visitors may notice the carnivorous plant of sundew, and a variety of birds – wood sandpipers, white wagtails, tree pipits. The bog has been designated as internationally important Bird Area. The key feature distinguishing the Great Kemeri Bog and other raised bogs in Kemeri surroundings and making them unique on European level is the sulphurous mineral waters, which are forming deep underneath the surface of the bog and bursting out on the surface in more than 30 open springs in the vicinity of Kemeri. The boardwalk has 2 loops – a small one of 1,5km and a long one of 3,5km. The overall hiking time is around 1.5 hours. Available whole year through, though the most beautiful scenery in the bog is in spring and autumn, and especially, in early morning watching the sunrise.

Very nice and interesting trail!
