Slitere National Park

Slitere National Park is located in the Northern Kurzeme peninsula washed by the Baltic Sea. The park is known for its incredibly beautiful vista – courtesy of the sea, broadleaf forests, bogs, wetlands, boreal forests and swamps.

For public convenience, there are:

  • several nature trails;
  • cycling paths;
  • routes for motorists, boaters, and hikers;
  • observation towers to discover the diversity and cultural history of the park.

Outdoor recreation:

  • Kolkasrags Pine and Evazi nature trails are good for any walker, while Peterezers nature Trail and Slitere nature trail will entail climbing steeper hills – but the views they afford will be well worth the effort;
  • The sandy beaches of the Baltic Sea are excellent for walks;
  • cycling paths to choose from: Mazbanitis (Choo-choo) Trail from Mazirbe to Sikrags, Slitere Circle (along the beaches of the Baltic Sea and Gulf of Riga) or the route through Liv fishing villages from Kolka to Sikrags;
  • experienced sailors are definitely recommended sail to Kolka Lighthouse at least once;
  • visit Sliteri during the bird migration period or take part in the annual Bird Days;
  • sample the traditional cuisine of Northern Kurzeme shores – sklandrausis and smoked fish.

What to see at Slitere National Park:

  • Cape Kolka – the horn where waters of the Sea Inlet (Gulf of Riga) and the Great Sea (Baltic Sea) meet;
  • Slitere Lighthouse on top of the Blue Hills;
  • Mazirbe (Ire) - visit the Liv People’s House, see a collection of ancient Liv items at Sturisi, the boat cemetery;
  • A collection of antlers in Vaide’s Purvziedi includes over 550 items.
