Velnezers lake aka Devil's lake 😈 in Latgale, Latvia.

Velnezers Laka aka Devil's lake in Latgale Latvia

Velnezers lake also known as Devil's lake can be found in Latgale, a region in the East of Latvia.

It got the nickname Devil's lake because it's surrounded by legends and mystery. There are stories about people disappearing in the forest, about not a bird that sings and that it's bad luck and dangerous swimming in the lake.

It's said that people don't know how the lake came to be. Some say it's because of a meteor impact, others claim it's because of an earthquake. One thing's for sure though, it's not like any other lake you've visited before.

As mysterious as it is it's also absolutely beautiful! The water is crystal clear and the silence surrounding it makes it the perfect place to find some peace and quiet.

This Devil's lake was the playground for our first Destination Challenges in Latvia. Muhahahaaaa 😈.

Paul (Passport Diary) and I were tasked to find it and take a walk around and that's exactly what we did...

Paul and I made our way to mysterious Devil's lake with our vans and enjoyed a little hike in the forest and around the lake. Watch it all in the video below ;-)

Where we stayed in Latgale

The Klajumi horse ranch
Paul and I stayed here for 3 nights and had an absolutely fantastic time.
Everything at the farm is organically grown and that results in delicious meals!
The cabin we stayed at was an oasis of peace. Perfect place to recharge the batteries ;-)

    "Papá? Como correu a reunião com a Câmara Municipal hoje?"

    "Perfeitamente bem, claro."O papá respondeu com a sua voz suave e profunda. Em vez disso, vão montar a casa do pecado em Mercerville."O papá continuou convencido.

    A desilusão inundou-me. Emocao. E finalmente, orgulho.

    Claro que o papá conseguiu o que queria, sempre conseguiu. E agora ouvia a Evelyn cantar todas as semanas! Mas não seria capaz de ver a terrível casa assombrada com a Evelyn. Provavelmente foi melhor assim, lembrei-me. E se eu me entusiasmasse e fizesse algo lamentável? Não, foi melhor assim.
