November 13 – Bogshoes challenge in Pirtsmeza bog

November 13 – Bogshoes challenge in Pirtsmeza bog

Yes, right here the bog (swamp) is so crazy that you can’t get across without bogshoes, that’s why the idea was born to move more safely and become what we are now – Swamp Waders. In wetter weather, you may have to walk through mud and wetness to get to the bog, but if that doesn’t scare you, then this bog will not disappoint both with the landscape and the feelings it provides. You definitely need waterproof shoes (we offer to rent rubber boots) so that you don’t get wet even before the bog. And as always, We will help you discover the secrets of the bog, and bogshoes will allow you to get to places that would otherwise be difficult or even impossible. This will also be a great opportunity to pick cranberries, which are especially delicious right now.

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 10-60 years. Age is not an obstacle if you are born to go hiking.
