Crossing the bog by foot takes a whole day. On the bog ranges you will see the tracks of wolf, elks and in every spring we have found a bear wintering hide.

There are many hidden treasures in Soomaa similar to Toonoja. Toonoja is an island in the bog, where people have been escaping and living since 2000 years BC. There are no real roads to Toonoja's smoke sauna and the route from Karuskose takes you accross Kuresoo bog. 
 
We can guide you on longer trips that can last up to 5-6 days. Usually we do it combined using bogshoes, canoes and skies.
