Additional information

Travel to one of the most fantastic places in Belarus - Yelnya bog. We will visit the ecological class, go hiking in the swamp lightly, and before returning home on the lake we will organize a delicious picnic lunch of local products.

You will learn interesting information about the life of the "lungs" of Belarus, truly walk into the swamp, breathe clean (!) Air, swim in local lakes. See the sundew, walk on the soft sphagnum, inhale the aroma of wild rosemary. Surely, after this day, the swamp will be for you one of the favorite places to relax!

Our guide will be a local man Valery Kovalenok - a professional photographer of wildlife. It can be said that it is adjacent not only to people, but also to birds - he knows very well who nests where and at what time of year and day you can catch feathered houses. Is the keeper of the swamp Yelnya, perfectly oriented among its picturesque expanses. He will take us to his favorite places, along the way he will tell about the bog and birds.

On Yelna we learn what is called a lake, and explore these mystical places by swimming! Peat lakes in the swamp are shallow, and the water there is a pleasant summer temperature. Especially on a hot day, it's just an incredible pleasure to plunge into a lake with a peat bottom. Take our word for our tourists: swimming in Yelna is one of the most vivid impressions of the trip!
