The best way to get around in Estonia's bogs is by bogshoeing. Bogshoes are like snowshoes – except you wear them on bogs when there's no snow! The soft, squidgy surface, the amazing landscape, the dark pools of water, the fascinating plant life and the legends of the bogs make bogshoeing an unforgettable experience. Anyone who is capable of an ordinary hike can give it a go!
We hike in Viru bog in Lahemaa National Park, where there is good infrastructure and a viewing tower. The hike is perfect for those who want the ultimate bogshoeing experience kogemust without having to put in a huge amount of time or effort.
