There’s no bad weather, only bad clothing – it’s a good reminder for the winter months. And we keep repeating it again and again, since looking out of the window reminds us that sometimes the weather does indeed look a bit… uninviting.
However, it is proven that being out in nature as often as possible is one of the best ways to stay happy and healthy, both physically and mentally.
Something quite unusual perhaps, however loved by Estonians, are bog walks. Bogs are the oldest organic landscapes in Estonia, sometimes reaching up to 10 000 years of age. These vast areas feel very much like mysterious wetlands and as such were often feared in the past due to old folk stories. Nowadays you can find wooden pathways built through many of them that bring quite a few people to explore these magical places and helps you to a) not get lost b) stay dry c) enjoy your time in the wilderness.
You can use the “Loodusega Koos” app to find great places to go for a walk in Estonia.
