Ligatne Nature Trails of Gauja NP were established in 1975 in order to acquaint visitors with nature, wild mammal species living in Latvia, nature diversity and environmental protection.
On the banks of the Gauja River, in the area rich in wooded glens more than 5 km long trails are laid where you can observe wild animals and birds characteristic for the fauna of Latvia. You need 2-2.5 h on average for a visit.
