Viru bog study trail

Viru bog, one of the most accessible bogs in Estonia, passes through the forest and bog landscapes characteristic of Lahemaa National Park. The trail is 3.5 km and the lap is 6 km long. The study trail introduces the bog's flora, former sand dunes, eskers, and heath forest. There is a boardwalk with an observation tower in the middle of it.
The trail is marked and there are signposts.

Good to know: the boardwalk leading to the observation tower (1,400 meters) is accessible to wheelchair users and families with strollers. The entrance to the first viewing platform was also designed with accessibility in mind.
To preserve the flora and soil, only walk on the boardwalk. Not suitable for cyclists.

  • Nice enough

    Not quite sure what all the fuss is about. Was a nice enough walk but wasn’t blown away. Wish the signage on the walk had been more detailed. Wouldn’t go out of my way to visit but worth a stop if...

  • Beautiful boardwalk hike in Northern Estonia

    A well kept boardwalk in a beautiful swamp scenery. Walk starts close to parking and makes a loop. This should definitely be on your itinerary. Take your swimmers with you!

  • Must visit when going to the National Park

    Stunning trail with very diverse things to see. Not often you can visit and explore bogs in that way and just walk through. Definitely recommend stopping by when in the area.
