Trip to Soomaa: come enjoy its special 5th season by canoeing on flooded fields

Saturday, April 8, 2023, 8:30 AM – 5:00 PM UTC

Soomaa in the Southwestern part of Estonia has its own special season. In spring, when the water floods the fields and forests you can have an unique experience on canoes. This season lasts only for a short time and is magical! This year's high water is said to be the most beautiful of the last 10 years. Come on a small roadtrip and explore it for yourself!

About this event

Think bogs, marshes, and wetlands but think in a completely different way!

Think of the water flooding the most unusual places, such as fields and forests.

Think of yourself inside all this magic, sitting in a canoe, paddling around.

All this is possible. Soomaa National Park has its own special season, also called the 5th season. This year, the water is exceptionally high, so it's definitely a great time for a visit! And we're going there!

When? We'll leave Tallinn around 11.30am to be at Tõramaa at 2pm. 

What to bring? From there, we'll get the canoes and go wandering. Life jackets and paddles are also provided. The water's not too deep, it's fields and forests anyway. However, do bring a change of clothes because you could still get a bit wet! Wear waterproof shoes/rain boots. Bring a snack with you, we'll be on the water for a few hours!

How much? The canoe is EUR 25 per person + maybe some overhead booking fee. We'll collect money and discuss it in a separate Telegram group. It needs to be booked beforehand. That's why... if you commit, please transfer the money to secure your spot! Numbers are limited! Soomaa is currently very popular. Another cost: car rental cost-sharing (if we need Bolt Drive cars) or paying some money for the gas to whoever is willing to drive their own car there. It's about 150 km from Tallinn.

What else? After lots of fresh air and spending all that energy, we can enjoy dinner together. Maybe in Pärnu!

If you're coming RSVP as soon as possible! Will close the registration on April 5 at the latest!
