This is the largest swamp in Western Latvia with a history that began 5000 to 7000 years ago. The site has a natural swamp that is rife with living things, but also a degraded landscape that can be seen at the very start of the path. There visitors will find ditches that were once installed to prepare the swamp for peat extraction. Now they have been dammed up to restore the water level. The Vasenieku swamp trail passes through small and lovely swamp lakes and forested areas, beaver dams, and then turns onto an earthen path along the side of the ditch. At the end of it, the visitor will see the wooden boardwalk that leads back to the start. At the centre of the pathway is a viewing tower which opens up a magnificent view of the swamp’s landscape.
