Great route to combine a hike in the swamp with a picnic near swamp lake. There are tables and a campfire place for picnics, also an opportunity to lie down in the sleeping nets or try SUP on the swamp lake. During the hike you will be able to see the world of moss, small pine trees, deep pools and smell wild rosemary. The trail 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.
