The lake has 14 islands, and there found a total of 200 species of birds. The richest diversity can be seen during the spring season and in early autumn.

A heavily overgrown Lake Kaņieris is a lagoon-type lake and is a protected nature object located in Ķemeri National Park. The lake is one of the richest in Latvia in bird and plant diversity, therefore it is favoured by anglers and ornithologists.

The suggested starting route point is at the sign to Bird watching tower (Putnu vērošanas tornis) at the road Lapmežciems-Antiņciems. The tower allows to enjoy some truly spectacular views over the lake.

Afterwards the trail continues to the wooden boardwalk, which is installed on pontoons and links two islands, allowing to observe the beauty of the lake landscape with dry legs.
