Bog shoeing on the edge of Europe

VEEKESKUSE, Väike-Rõsna küla, Setomaa vald, Võru maakond

REQUEST INFORMATION View on map

A bog shoeing (snowshoeing) trip that stimulates your fancy will take you to the frontier where European and Slavonic cultures meet in a swamp area on the border between Estonia and Russia. We can hike through diverse landscapes and habitats in the diverse Lämmijärve wetland. We will pass through thick reeds, jump over ditches, wakj over bog islands and pass swamp lakes and rivers. We will also take a look at a beaver habitat, places where roes sleep, catch a glimpse of Russia, visit the giant burial mounds of the ancient inhabitants and talk about the local culture and its primeval origins. If we are lucky, we can also see grey herons, predatory birds and water fowls, beavers and foxes.

Accommodation and sauna: in Mäe Nature House or Värska Spa and Hotel.
