Why should I go for a hike in a bog at all? Because it is a place where peace and quiet, and untouched wilderness still prevails. Have you every stood in the middle of a bog and heard... nothing? Exactly. No cars, people, bells and whistles surrounding you. It is the best antidepressant in the world and a great place to recharge.
2. Year-round beauty and charm
Autumn and winter are said to be the best time for bogshoeing, however, just like every season is different, bogshoeing can also offer fun experiences during each time of year. Come in the winter and admire frozen bog lakes and discover animal tracks in the snow. Come in the spring when the nature is awakening and bog plants blossoming. Come in the summer to search for cloudberries and bathe in bog lakes. Come in the autumn and enjoy vibrant colours and pick cranberries. You will surely experience something special if you come bogshoeing during sunrise on an early morning. At that time, the bog landscape acquires a particularly magic and enchanting aura – bog lakes are steaming and thousands of spiderwebs are covered in dew drops. Once the sun rises, they magically disappear. No, it is not a fairy tale, it is completely true!
3. Trust yourself in the care of your hiking guide
You can also rent bogshoes and go to the bog on your own, but it would be best to go with an experienced hiking guide. They will provide you with bogshoes and take you to the most exciting places. They can also tell you great stories of bygone days, bog monsters and legends, as well as share knowledge of bog flora and fauna. Hiking guides can draw your attention to places you might just walk by on your own. Since the air in the bog is always clean and the water always fresh, you should not be surprised if your hiking guide makes you tea from bog water. A fire is often set up after a couple of hours of hiking and hikers are offered a refreshing meal. What could be better?
