August 20 – With swamp shoes at the Tourism meeting

The tourism meeting will be held for the fifth year, this year on August 20 in Ergli. This is an event where Latvian tourism professionals and amateurs will come together to demonstrate active tourism skills and give everyone an opportunity to try different types of active tourism.

Few people know that in the depths of the forest of the Ergli region there is the Road of Millions, and a little further – the completely inaccessible Palsu swamp. We will go straight to the Palsu swamp in bog shoes to enjoy the untouched natural landscape and swim in one of the many bog lakes.

The central venue for events and meetings is the platform of the former Ergli railway station – the center of active tourism “Ergli Station”. The complex is an ideal training ground for endless challenges and experiments in nature, where other outdoor activities will also take place, more information can be found on the website stacija.eu.
