Winter snowshoe hike in Männikjärve bog

The winter snowshoe hike takes the participants to discover Männikjärve bog in the Endla Nature Reserve. The purpose of the hike is to look for bog pools buried under the snow and explore Männikjärv and Endla lakes. In the middle of the hike, we will make a stop by the lake – we will tell stories, drink tea, and make pancakes on the campfire! In addition to the traditional monthly hikes, MTÜ Elamusretked offers the opportunity to order memorable trips all over Estonia! Wherever you are – we will help you find an adventure!
