Gaujiena air field is an abandoned airfield along the E77 highway, 152 kilometers east-northeast 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 and consisted of a small runway, a taxiway and a medium sized platform to the southeast of the runway.

From what can be seen in Google Earth, the airfields runway and platform were already deteriorated before 2003. In 2011, Latvian Airfields listed the airfield as 'Uncertified aerodrome generally not suitable for flight operations'. In July 2017, sucessor site MyAirfields described the airfield as 'bad', stating "There are many bushes along the runway and there is growing grass and misc obstacles on the runway. Usable for emergency only."
The airfield is uncertified and therefore officially closed to all traffic.
