Airfield Vārme was an airfield 115 kilometers west 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 taxiways to a medium sized platform to the southeast of the runway.

The airfield in 2013 (MyAirfields)

MyAirfields (formerely Latvian Airfields) listed the airfield as 'fairly good' in 2011. In 2013 that changed to 'Average'.  RWY surface is average, occasionally small stones and sand, small pieces of grass. Small bush at NW side of RWY approx at RWY mid length. Minor asphalt pitting in front of that bush on RWY close to RWY centerline. Apron and taxiways unserviceable. Runway can be used for takeoff and landings. Obstacles may be on the runway!!!
The airfield is uncertified and officially closed to all traffic, however.
