Description of the trail:
Kalnansi bog trail is located 34 km from Kuldīga, near Kabile. It is a 1 km loop-type bog trail with really beautiful landscape – a bog forest, lake and bog-specific plants. The lake is credited of having a very soft and healing water. In past, stories were told that it could be the deepest lake in Latvia and because of that it had been named Bezdibenis (Bottomless) Lake. Later it turned out that its true depth is only 7 m. Kalnansi bog is a protected high moss bog.
