A 4.8km boardwalk through Sooma National park bogland with stunning surroundings and plenty of peaceful resting places to contemplate the surroundings. You can’t get lost and there is even a shorter wheelchair accessible boardwalk. Easy to find, signposted and not far from Tori village. Recommended...More

Viru Bog in Lahemaa in the north of the country is great, but Soomaa is even better. There are some fantastic boardwalk-based walks around the national park, as well as specific tours, but it's easy to navigate on your own, and depending on the season,...More

Soomaa National Park was amazing. There were some minuses, but you can’t change the nature and the world. Nature, there is beautiful. Visit that place.

We decided to book 2 of their trips. A beaver safari and a wilderness day trip. We tried the night safari to see beavers. They are shy nocturnal animals and it was a great opportunity to see them in their natural habitat. One of them...More

We walked the 4.8 Km Riisa study trail. It is a fantastic "floating" boardwalk loop trail that takes you a little way into the bog. It is an utterly amazing environment. There are a few benches along the way to sit down and just drink...More

If you're in the area and love nature this is your place. About 45 mins from Viljandi. You may not see any animals cause they normally are most active at night but you will enjoy being outside and walking around with healthy air. Huge park!...More

Really lovely place(s) .... large park area (forests and bogs) that cater for the walker / visitor very well. Good tracks/paths, duckboard walks across bogs. Wildlife (birds and mammals) quite superb, AND QUIET, very few people around.

Though very used to this landscape, I thought the park is amazing. If you have the time, spend some hours there, even a day, and explore it. Sunset and sunrise are even nicer. The only remark: the long gravel road (but in good conditions), that...More
