Description

The bogs are places very dear to all Estonians and have been part of our culture for centuries. Therefore one mustn’t leave Estonia before visiting a bog. The bog-shoe hiking in a bog takes you to places what otherwise would be inaccessible. We hike around the bog pools, admire the wildlife, climb the watch-tower and listen to mysterious stories and legends our tour guides tell about the bogs. Bog-shoe hike is doable all year round and offers different discoveries every season. Have an unforgettable adventure in Estonia and come to a bog-shoe hike in the picturesque Kõnnu Suursoo.

Get outside of Tallinn and visit a bog

Leave the bustling city behind and let your local guide drive you to a bog about an hour away from Tallinn. On your way you will see the real face of Estonia with its vast forest and largely untouched nature. As almost half of Estonia’s population lives in the capital, most of the country is covered with natural habitats as the cities are small and agriculture not extensive.
