Peipsiveere Nature Reserve, resting spot

Protected since 1981, the main assets of Peipsiveere, formerly known as Emajõe-Suursoo Nature Reserve, are its diverse wet habitats and the large bog in the delta of a river. The bog covers approximately 25,000 ha, 7,000 ha of which gets flooded. The site is one of the Natura 2000 Special Areas of Conservation and Special Protection Areas, and it is the fifth largest Estonian bog and the largest bog in the delta of a river in Estonia. In the nature reserve, at the beginning of the Emajõgi study trail, you will find the Kantsi campfire and camping site with a village swing, where bigger groups can spend some lovely time. The area is ideal for birdwatching and fishing.
