Wildlife Holidays in Latvia

Latvia lies between Estonia to the north and Lithuania to the south and, in common with the other Baltic States, is relatively undeveloped, with extensive forests, wetlands and coastlines that are rich in birds. Our tour samples the spring migration at Cape Kolka (where many thousands of seaducks, raptors and passerines are funnelled into this narrow point of land before crossing the Gulf of Riga) and also Kemeri National Park, where the wetlands host flocks of migrating marsh terns and waders, and the forests are home to woodpeckers.

Travelling to the east of the country, we end our holiday with a visit to the Lake Lubāns Wetland area, a ‘Natura 2000’ reserve home to Bluethroat, Citrine Wagtail, Booted Warbler and Red-necked Grebe.
