November 14 – Bog-shoes challenge in Pirtsmeza mire

November 14 – Bog-shoes challenge in Pirtsmeza mire

Yes, right here the swamp is so crazy that without bog-shoes you can’t get over it. This is where the idea was born to go hiking across the swamps and become what we are now – Swamp Wanderers. In wetter weather, the road to the swamp may be wet and muddy, but if it is not scary, then this swamp will not disappoint both the landscape and the senses.

Waterproof shoes (rubber boots) are definitely needed to keep your feet from getting wet before the swamp. If necessary, we can rent rubber boots. And as always – guides will help you discover the secrets of the swamp and the bog-shoes will allow you to get to where it would otherwise be difficult or even impossible. This will also be a great opportunity to collect cranberries, which are now especially delicious.

The hike is intended for active participants who like long hikes and challenges, so they must be in good physical shape and the recommended age of participants is 12-55 years. Age does not matter if you are experienced in hiking.
