Hiking in Estonia comes naturally to the locals who go to forests and bogs all year round to pick berries, mushrooms and go camping with friends and family.
Looking to feel one with the nature? Estonia’s majestic pine forests and ancient bogs are popular nature getaway destinations among the locals and international alike, suitable for beginners and skilled hiking enthusiasts. Estonian nature is also home for many different animals - here you might see for example a moose, a bear, a fox or a wild boar and listen to birds singing.
The most extensive long-distance hiking trail in Estonia is 820 km long, passing camp sites, huts and cottages, perfect for spending a quiet night under the Northern sky. In bogs you will find towers, where to catch a view of the horizon or have a nice picnic.
