Kicksledge (Finnish sledge) hiking marathon on Otepää lake Pühajärv
On Saturday, 08.02.2020 we are organizing for the fifth time hiking marathon on kick-sledges on Otepää lake Pühajärv.Hiking marathon is suitable for everyone. If you don´t want, you don't have to race for the podium medals. Our schedule leaves enough time to enjoy the ride (two hours to kick ten kilometers).
Difference between the event and our everyday hikingtrips is that we don't lead or guide you on the trip. So every hiker makes his/her own trip - slow or quick, alone or with a group, sporting or enjoying the nature.
Pühajärv is always a lake that amazes You with it's picturesque and variable nature.

For more information or registration please contact with Imre Arro, +372 527 2701, imre@loodusturism.ee
