Wilderness Day Trip in Soomaa National Park
Guided wilderness experience day-trip combines bog shoeing* (or bog walking on wooden path) and canoeing. First we walk through Riisa village and the forest and reach the largest peat-bog in Estonia – Kuresoo. These footwear allow us access to the places where it is hard or even impossible to reach by foot. We will wear bogshoes and walk on the wild landscape, followed by wilderness lunch.
The trip ends with a relaxing canoe trip along Soomaa meandering rivers. Paddling in 2- or 3-seat plastic canoes of canadian style.It is a relaxing, fun, and easy tour.
