Foto: Aivar Ruukel Ohtrad vihmasajud tõid Soomaale järjekordsed ujutused ehk viienda aastaaja. Riisal vett juba 2 meetrit üle suvise kokkuleppelise nulltaseme, ööpäevaga on lisandunud 40 cm. Viimati oli selline suvine loodusnähtus 2008 aastal.

Canoeing is one of the best ways to explore the wilderness of Soomaa. Canoeing season usually lasts from April until October or until the rivers are covered with ice. Paddling is relaxing, fun, and easy to get the hang of. We have 2- and 3-seat plastic canoes of canadian style. Before you set off, our staff show you how to handle your boat. One can choose between guided tours or do it on your own.
