Snowshoe hikes in the Marimetsa bog

The best (and safest) way to hike through Estonia's bogs is using snowshoes. But you don't have to wait for the snow to set in before you use them – even when it's dry, they are the perfect footwear for the soggy terrain of bogs and marshland. Hiking through this unique landscape, which its myriad of plant life and local legends, is a truly unforgettable experience – particularly the squelchy, sponge-like surface beneath your feet! Anyone who is capable of hiking is capable of snowshoe hiking. Marimetsa bog's rolling panorama of inky black pools is the perfect place for lovers of nature to explore.
