Soomaa (the Land of Bogs) National Park in Estonia joined the PAN Parks network of European wilderness areas as it proved excellence in combining wilderness protection and sustainable tourism development. To get the PAN Parks certification the Estonian park was subject to independent international verification according to the PAN Parks Principles and Criteria, including environmental and sustainable tourism aspects.


Only couple of days ago Soomaa was awarded by the European Commission as the European Destinations of Excellence (EDEN), being among natural areas that are off-the-beaten track represent some of the most stunning and pristine environments on the continent.


These two labels recognize the work of all stakeholders in Soomaa national park towards sustainable tourism development.
