Dundaga air field name was an airfield 120 kilometers northwest of Riga, Latvia.
The airfield was built by the Soviet Union in the 1975-1985 timeframe. It was used for agricultural activities by state-run Aeroflot. It consisted of a small runway and a fairly large platform and hangar like structure to the west of the runway.

In 2010 Latvian Airfields listed the airfield as:
(...) in a good state in terms of surface quality: asphalt of runway, taxiways and apron is good.
(...) If you find that runway is clear of obstacles and consider landing, make sure that your aircraft has a good climb performance, since there are trees at both ends of the runway (~250m) and electricity line just 140m S of the field.
The airfield is uncertified and officially closed to all traffic.
Its taxi track seems to have become part of the local road system. Otherwise the airfield appears to be relatively intact.
