December 18 – The final hike of the year with snowshoes

December 18 – The final hike of the year with snowshoes

Together with Māris Olte and Kristaps Kiziks, we will welcome the 4th Advent on a hike with bog/snow shoes in the Palšu bog. We will start the adventure in the capital of Winter – Ērgļi, where Māris gathers tourists at the former railway station of Ērgļi. After a little introduction, we will go along Miljonu Street to the nearby Palšu bog, where we will walk in the snow-covered forests and marsh until the evening hour. We will complement the festive mood with a bonfire, warm drink and snacks.

The walk will be circular. Māris and Kristaps will help you discover the secrets of the bogs and snowshoes will allow you to get to places that would otherwise be difficult or even impossible. This will be a great opportunity to learn about hiking with bog/snowshoes, overcome the fear of swamps (bogs) in a comfortable and safe way, have a great time in nature and listen to fascinating stories.

The hike is intended for active participants who like challenges, so you must be in good physical shape and the recommended age for participants is 8-60 years. Age is not an obstacle if you are born to go hiking.

The number of places is limited and this will be the final hike of 2022.
