Romantic town, green dune, bog and sulfur water in Kemeri

  • 6 h
  • ~22km
  • Ķemeri National Park

This trail brings you to Ķemeri – a former sulfur water and mud resort town, once famous, it has fallen from its former glory, only architectural monuments are left to speak of the former splendour of the Ķemeri resort. Ķemeri is a very lovely town with romantic wooden architecture, perfect for all those who are artists at heart. Ķemeri is located within the Ķemeri National Park which is known for its great biological diversity, especially, bogs and swamps. 

What is waiting for you on this hike? Exciting walk around Ķemeri historical resort sites with a breath of history, lovely wooden architecture, wet broadleaf forest and the Black Alder swamp boardwalk allowing you to see absolutely wild nature without getting your feet wet, peaceful hike along the Green Dune on a nice path leading through the woods and the swamp, colorful sulfur water ponds in the Swamp of the Witches, and hopefully – a lot of adventures! Oh, and let’s not forget – approximately 22 km and five hours of fresh Latvian air!

  • Ķemeri bathhouse, hotel, rotunda on the Love island and other sites of the former resort
  • Black Alder swamp boardwalk
  • Forest trail
  • The Church of St. Peter-Paul
  • Ķemeri wooden architecture
  • Green Dune

I love the atmosphere in the group and the offered trails. They show a part of the countryside that is still not yet... well know but definitely worth seeing. With woods that look like the one from a fairy story book and really good company it's definitely a suggested tou experience for the lovers of outdoors activities..The guide is super available and offer explanations and curiosity. Particularly useful is the description of how to reach the starting point with public transport (even with the specific schedule time). So I definitely recommend it 😉read more

I am very grateful to Valdis for leading our hike through the Gauja National Park near Sigulda. It was the perfect... combination of the city sightseeing and enjoying nature. Valdis made stops at the most remarkable objects both in the city and in nature and told the most important things, which were neither too much nor too little. He really took good care of the group. Thank you for this day! Highly recommended!read more
