Soomaa Wilderness consists of four peat bogs, connected by rivers and floodplain meadows and forests. Because of this, Soomaa Wilderness is internationally known as a Ramsar Site.

Interestingly the area is known for having five seasons – the fifth is the ‘high-water season’, which usually comes in March or April.  The whole region floods, and it is necessary to use a boat to travel! Because of this, the local villagers have a tradition of making dugout canoes, and the knowledge is passed down through the generations. You can read more about Soomaa Wilderness below:
