Hiking Adventure Training
This is the best adventure for real wilderness and nature lover. This is a challening yet beautiful two day hike across Estonian largest peatbog system. In colder seasons we gather in the evening, pack and enjoy the somesauna and hot tub of Karuskose Basecamp and start off in the morning, a full day hike (8 km) into the bog island, set up the camp for the night, cook and enjoy campfire. On the second day we cross the bog and find our ways along the forest. This can be done either on foot, with bog- or snowshoes or by backcountry skis - depending on the conditions.
This package takes place in the wild heart of Estonia - Soomaa National Park. The activity is suitable for all healthy adults interested in hiking and the well hidden secrets which are away from the beaten track.
The base fare includes two days of hiking with experienced local guide, equipment if needed (rubber boots, bog- or snowshoes, skiing equipment). Food and accommodation in the wilderness hut for the first night and the saunas can be ordered as recommended extra for 70€. The group size is 6-20 people and for groups more than 10 people we offer group discount. Contact us for the discount code.
