Tour skating is long distance ice skating that takes place on bodies of natural ice. Particularly popular in Nordic countries, it usually involves tours over open ice on lakes or the sea. In the case of Estonia however, visitors can enjoy the even more unique opportunity of ice skating on frozen bogs – definitely one of the coolest winter activities on offer!
The crystal clear ice and stunning landscapes offer skaters an enviable winter wonderland experience. The bog water is pure and doesn’t contain mineral deposits. As such, these bodies of water are the first to freeze. Bog ice skating is a uniquely Estonian activity, taking you to places far off the beaten track.
