August 23 – Bog-shoe Hiking Tour at Dunika bog

On August 23th, you will have the opportunity to hike with a small group to enjoy the magical swamp landscape with countless lakes, small pines and flowering plants. If we are quiet enough, we can listen to the cries of the cranes. We will help uncover the secrets of the swamp, and bogshoes will allow you to get to places where it would not otherwise be possible. It will also be a great opportunity to swim in the deepest lakes of the Dunika bog.
The event is held in Latvian with the possibility of translation into Russian and English.

The number of participants is limited!
