What to do?
- Canoeing. The territory of the park is famous for its annual floods that cover forest and roads and reach quite a surprising level. But even out of the flooding season, having a small canoe ride can be spectacular. Wrapped by the noises of nature and only nature, enjoying the peace and follow the traces of animals – what a joy!

- Visiting the bogs. Don’t hesitate to make the tour with a guide who’ll tell you more than you’d like to know about the nature of the bogs, history of the park and who’ll show you the traces of… little bears and plants that actually eat insects.
You agree, that the view is fantastic, don’t you?

The plant eating the insects. Nice!
Fancy picking the berries? Help yourself!
We took a guiding tour for several hours and a meal, which was traditional Estonian porridge and homemade bread and fruit dessert. Delicious and so good!
Anyway, the park is opened for visitors, and make sure that Soomaa is on your list of things to experience in the Baltics, as it is definitely worth it.
