Riisa Study Trail in the Soomaa National Park

You will find a sign by the Jõesuu-Tõramaa Road that invites you to a boardwalk in the beautiful Riisa bog. The trail passes 8 rest stops and a watchtower.
A motorway, a car park, and an outhouse are located right by the gate at the beginning of the trail.
The hike begins in a spacious bog and briefly runs through the forest. In places like these, you can see the forest turning into a bog and vice versa – dry ground is replaced by wet land, and swamp plants with ancient spruce forests. You can also see some beautiful swamp pools by the trail.
This is perfect location for a family picnic!

Riisa study trail is also accessible with a wheelchair and a baby carriage until the first swamp pool at the 1.2 km mark.

  • Good - but not as good as Lahemaa's Viru Bog Trail

    This is a pretty simple decision - you did not have a chance to visit Lahemaa? Riisa Trail just became a must-see. Otherwise, you will probably find it pretty similar, given that you are visiting in...

  • Nice, short trail

    It's about 4.8km, easy to walk because of the wooden boards, you won't have more than 80 mins for the round-trail. Very quiet, some parts are in the forest, but most of it is in the open bog.

  • Feel the serenity

    This trail is serenity on Earth! Take your time, enjoy every step, fresh air and uniqueness of the surrounding.
