Bog-shoe Hiking Tour at Kodaja bog

Booking: info@purvubrideji.lv

Overview

This is one of the longest and most difficult routes. You can find some crazy good places in the bog and maybe even get to Estonia. The nature will be wilderness with many lakes, wide landscape and intense nerve-racking places, and the hike is quite long (~ 11km). Please evaluate your abilities and hiking experience. The route passes through protected nature areas, it is not marked in nature and is not intended for walking without a “Bog-shoeing” guide.

Trekking boots with waterproof membrane or rubber boots are required.
