Kartavkalni is a wide area with a number of walking routes that stretch through the hillocks overgrown with forests for a distance of more than 3 km. The name Kartavkalns comes from gallows (latv. - “karātavas”), which were built here 300 years ago to protect the area against robbers. An ancient Semigallian settlement used to be here in the past.
The first stretch of the trail – the impressive larch lane – is also accessible to people in wheelchairs. It is possible to reach the resting and picnic area, as well as see the ancient hillfort and the reproduction of the ancient latvian settlement. Further trail stretches are not accessible.
