In European countries bogs have preserved only fragmentarily due to intensive human activity. We offer you an opportunity to visit Estonian unmolested nature by going to Rannametsa-Tolkuse hiking trail just about 20 km from the fifth largest town in Estonia.
You can enjoy the splendid Rannametsa dunes, the sandy and stony coastal zone that consist large meadows and reed beds. From the high ancient coastline covered with pine forest you descend to discover wilderness in the middle of exotic fauna and genuinely pure water of hags. About 6500-years-old Tolkuse bog is unique in the whole Europe being one of the few lagoon mires that have developed to bog stage.
To enjoy this example of primeval nature, you take adventurous walking tour in the bog on 2.5 km nature trail consisting around 1 km wooden pathway in the bog and some staircases and wooden platforms in sand dunes.
The tour is hardly debilitative; on the contrary, you get extra energy by just acknowledging what a special landscape you are walking on. (You are advised to dress warmly)
You get fantastic self-realization being encircled with ancient wilderness.
