Along the 2.6 km hiking trail, you can take a look at the Lipstu heath and Lake Sõbessoo. The boardwalk is 940 m long and the hiking trail is 1,690 m long.

Sõbessoo with its many swamp pools is a suitable nesting place for typical fen birds. Here, you can spot whooper swans or Montagu's harriers. The local forests are a home to various species of woodpeckers, grouses, hazelhens, stock doves and earless owls.

In the summer, you can admire waterlilies blooming on the surface of the lake.

During hot summer days, it is a great place for a refreshing swim.

The bog offers relaxing moments during any season. Here, you can also go on a bog-shoe adventure!

Take along a picnic basket and come enjoy the silence of the bog!
