About
Soomaa national park has few roads, that is why canoeing is a great way to explore the wilderness of the park. You will paddle downstreams by slow and quiet river, that runs through natural meadows, and floodplain forests. This one day self-guided canoe trip gives you the option to stop along the route and explore two walking trails near the river. These represent typical landscapes of Soomaa national park – alluvial forest (Lemmjõe keelemetsa Nature Trail), floodplain meadows and Estonian biggest peat-bog (Ingatsi Nature Trail).

Peace and quiet in amazing scenery
Sep 2021
We only decided we wanted to go on a canoe trip a day in advance, but this was no problem. Communication with the rental company was quick and easy. We received clear instructions to the starting location, where we could park our car.

The driver was kind and told us some interesting facts about the park and its wildlife. He also gave us good instructions about canoeing and the route.

The trip itself was amazing - we didn't encounter a single other person or boat on the water. I'd definitely recommend stopping for the short walk on the peat bog trail.

Overall, it was a great experience with lots of amazing scenery. Highly recommended!

a day to remember
we enjoyed our day in the soomaa national park very much. even though it was a self-guided tour (canoeing and bog walking) the soomaa stuff was very helpful. they not only arranged a canoe, gave as a map and shared useful information but also recommended us in advance a wonderful place to stay and picked us up from there at a set time and date. we owe them a debt of gratitude for making our day great. we hope to come back one day and we shall use the soomaa services again.

Great experience with Aivar
Jun 2021 • Couples
We were canoying on beautiful Halliste river. It is calm river with few short rapids and sometimes obstacles (like fallen trees) you have to get over. Banks are full of grass and vegetation, so it's little bit tricky to find some place to get out and camp there. In Soomaa you can observe nature and have a nice time. Aivar was very friendly and nice guy, he told us about nature in Estonia, lent us boat and paddles and took us to the start of our trip.
We very recommend this company to enjoy your trip in Soomaa national park!

Our highlight of the trip to Pärnu
Jun 2021 • Couples
The organizational part was extremely easy and the hosts are super friendly and nice. I contacted Aivar a day before our trip and he answered instantly welcoming us for the next day.
The canoe trip itself is 12 km long which takes about 3 hours. There is a possibility to stop along the way for a break.
The route is picturesque, however be ready for insects. They are not aggressive and don’t sting, but there are plenty.
Totally worth it👍🏻
