Ķemeri National Park (Latvian: Ķemeru nacionālais parks) is a national park west of the city of Jūrmala, Latvia. Established in 1997, Ķemeri is the third largest national park in the country by area, covering an area of 381.65 km². The territory of the park is mostly occupied by forests and mires, the most significant of them being The Great Ķemeri Bog (Latvian: Lielais Ķemeru tīrelis). There are also several lakes, that are former lagoons of the Littorina Sea. Lake Kaņieris is a Ramsar site. The park also protects the famous natural mineral-springs and muds, used for centuries because of their therapeutic nature. The springs led to development of many resorts, spas, and sanitariums in the 19th century.Make Kemeri National Park a centerpiece of your Jurmala vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Jurmala trip itinerary planner.

The bog is pretty eerie and beautiful to see. The “long” route on the main trail takes about an hour if you’re fast. There’s an observation tower you can see great views from. Be warned, the trail is difficult to get to from the train station—takes at least half hr just to walk to/from it (but it’s not a bad hike).
Calm place ti have a nice nature walk. Long loop is around 3km an in the middle of it there is a watchtower. Nice views whatever the season.
