The bogs are places very dear to all Estonians and have been part of our culture for centuries. Therefore one mustn’t leave Estonia before visiting a bog. The bog-shoe hiking in a bog takes you to places what otherwise would be inaccessible. We hike around the bog pools, admire the wildlife, climb the watch-tower and listen to mysterious stories and legends our tour guides tell about the bogs. Bog-shoe hike is doable all year round and offers different discoveries every season. Have an unforgettable adventure in Estonia and come to a bog-shoe hike in the picturesque Kõnnu Suursoo.
In wintertime, we organize the same tour as a snow-shoe hiking tour.
PRICE INCLUDES: pick-up and drop off to your hotel in Tallinn, guided hiking in a bog, bog-shoes.
PICK UP PLACE AND TIME: hotel, as agreed.
Great Experience, very friendly and competent guide, got to learn a lot about the bog and its plants. A must if you like the outdoors.
Beautilful Estonian Countryside and a Fantastic Tour.
We did the Bog Shoe Hiking Tout with Prangli Travel in January 2023. It was a fantastic experience walking on the Estonian Bog. Our tour guides Keidi and Epp were extremely knowledgeable about the local area. The combination of the snow and greenery on the frozen bog made the Bog Hike a truly fascinating and memorable experience. I would strongly recommend using Prangli Travel and to venture out of the city of Tallinn to do this tour to see the beautiful countryside/nature that Estonia has to offer.
We have very enjoyed the activities and Keidi was fantastic!
Thank you very much for helping with the organization! The group was very happy, everything was perfect.
I will definitely remember about you in the implementation of the program for other groups in Tallinn.
Thank you for organizing a very interesting bog-shoe walk with Helen and her charming son, Orm. We really enjoyed all of it – including the bath in a bog pool and Helens tasty lunch snacks 😀
Yesterday we went on a bog hike with Helen and we want to say what a wonderful trip it was. Helen was a great guide. She made us feel safe even though neither of us had ever walked on a bog in bog shoes before. She was very knowledgeable about the bog and its flora and fauna, as well as aspects of Estonian history and legends. Helen was so friendly and outgoing that the trip was not only exciting but really fun. We’d recommend this trip to anyone visiting Tallinn as it gives such a contrast to simply seeing the (also impressive) old town.
Epic bog trip
It was such a great and unique experience to do the hike. We had a great guide, Triin. She knows so much about the bog and the and the plants and creatures. The tour was exactly long enough cause it is very intense. Would recommend to do this unique experience.
My podcast featuring bog shoe hike with Helen is live HERE!
Anne and I had a fantastic trip.
Thank you very much for organising it for us.
I recommend everyone who is visiting Tallinn to do this trip. It was a really great experience to hike in this beautiful landscape. You should take some waterproof shoes with you, because you probably get a little wet, if you are not careful where you set your foot 😉
Bog-shoeing and husky-sledding: BEST DAY EVER!
My boyfriend and I had the best day ever with our wonderful guide, Helen. We were interested in doing some winter activities whilst we were in Estonia and enquired about bog-shoeing and husky-sledding. Prangli Travel suggested that we could do both in the same day in a combo-tour, which is what we ended up doing. It was so much fun! Helen was great and we learned so much about Estonian life – as well as about the bog and the huskies! Would highly recommend – it was the best day of our holiday! Thanks Helen and Prangli Travel.
Excellent day out!
We spent the day with Helen who took us on a beautiful snow shoe hike in the morning which was lots of fun! Me and my girlfriend had never been snow-shoeing before but both thoroughly enjoyed it.
In the afternoon she took us to us a local Husky farm and we loved getting to meet all the dogs and give them lots of fuss. We then went on a great husky sleigh ride and also got to meet some of the puppies.
We both loved the whole day and had a great time. Helen was an excellent guide and had lots of interesting facts and stories about the area to share with us!
We would both highly recommend this to any other travellers.
Made a bog hike with Helen. Was a very nice experience for me and my (teen) kids.
And also the Secrets of the Soviets tour with Annika was very interesting. We did learn a lot about the history of Estland. I can only say when you visit Tallinn you surely have to go on these kind of trips to see what you normally would not see.
I’m sure next time when I am in Estland I will call Prangli team to show me more nice places.
