There are many bogs in Latvia, and they are a significant part of our environment. Bogs occupy more than 10% of the territory of Latvia. And there is only one way how to fully experience the beauty of the bog.
Bog-shoeing is a very interesting activity to do in Latvia, every bog has its own story, shape and its own magic. To move around a bog you don’t need previous knowledge or experience, but you will need special footwear that makes walking comfortable and safe. Bog shoes are designed to be moved around the bog to leave as little impact on the environment as possible.
The guide will educate you about how the bog has formed and what plants and creatures can be found in it. In the bogs, it’s also possible to find small bog-lakes where you will have the chance to swim (usually from May-October) if you are brave enough to dip in the dark water. Enjoy the silence and beauty of mysterious bogs in Latvia.
