#Family time , #Nature Trails
Here, the sounds of the city disappear — the sound of car engines, the chatter of people... A primeval silence and nature exist here. To give people a chance to experience one of Latvia's largest moss bogs, which is approximately 8000 years old, plants and animals’ characteristic to it, small bog lakes, puddles and quagmires, a wooden boardwalk has been created. It has two arcs — the great one and the small one. Those who enjoy shorter trips, seniors or parents with younger children can choose the smaller arc that will allow you to enjoy a 1.4 kilometre long walk, but the rest can surely take the 3.4 kilometres long route on the great arc which would not be complete without the observation tower from which the elongated lake or the labyrinth of quagmires can be seen giving it a special scenery. An especially gorgeous scenery will present itself to those that will wait for the sunrise or sunset in the bog. Those who have experienced it, say that it should definitely be experienced by everyone!
