Description
The Pape Nature Park in the south west region of Latvia is a birdwatching paradise, and home to some of the region’s most unique and majestic species found in the wild. In addition to being a home for some 50,000 migratory birds each year, the Pape Nature Park is now renowned for its reintroduction of several large herbivore species into the wild. Most notably was the reintroduction of wild horses, who had been driven from the area by human agriculture and settlements.

Spreading over some 51,000 hectares, the core of the park is the Papes Lake and the Nidas Marsh, along which there are several walking and hiking trails that allow park visitors to get up close and personal with the diverse nature found there.
