Pedeli Recreation area

Address: Tartu 2, Valga

The Pedeli River and the light traffic track that runs parallel to the river unite and also separate two countries and two cities. In Valga-Valka, you can walk from one country to another almost without noticing it. Take some time out and compare the flora, fauna and landscapes of Estonia and Latvia. The track is currently 5 km long and you can pass it by walking, cycling and roller-skating or roller-skiing. It is best not to rush here as there are many children’s playgrounds, rest areas and a beach (which is supervised by life guards in summer) right by the track.

Koiva Heritage Culture Trail

Address: Tsirgumäe, Taheva 

Completed in autumn 2010, this 60 km long cycling track and walking trail showcases cultural sites along the banks of the Koiva River, which runs along the border of Estonia and Latvia in Valga County - formerly part of Livonia. It begins at the Tellingumäe car park and has a recreational area and information boards with maps at the point it crosses the border between the two countries. Signs along the way will keep you from getting lost, even when exploring sites off the main track. The information boards provide information in Estonian, Latvian and English. The same car park is also the starting point for another, 18 km long cycling track.

Punda canoeing on River Koiva and River Mustjõgi

Aadress: Sooblase, Taheva
Phone: (+372) 528 6496, (+372) 769 8728 
Method of payment: cash

Punda farm organises canoe trips on both the Mustjõe and Koiva Rivers all the way to Sigulda in Latvia. You can choose between 1-2 day and 3-6 day trips, camping overnight. The Koiva River, which flows along the border between Estonia and Latvia, is a sight worth seeing in its own right for its oak groves, 150-year-old pines and its ancient meadows. It was on the banks of the river that the exterior scenes for the cult Estonian movie 'The Last Relic' were filmed. For an additional fee you can use the Punda farm sauna. Come canoeing - forget your everyday worries, enjoy nature and put yourself to the test!

Koiva - Mustjõe landscape protection

Address: Tsirgumäe, Taheva

At the heart of this protected area on the southern border of Estonia is the Koiva River - the natural boundary between Estonia and Latvia - and the Mustjõgi River that flows into it. The symbol of the Koiva River is the meadows that surround it with their old oak, lime and aspen trees. This is also the only place in the country where you will find the European spindle growing naturally. The meadows are the grazing land of Hereford cattle.

Tellingumäe is home to a 24-metre viewing tower, campsite and barbecue area, from which the area's 6 bike trails all start. The trails are marked with signs and information boards. There are further campsites and barbecue areas along the tracks, which measure between 21 and 60 km long.

Enjoy the area's natural beauty!

Karula National Park

Address: Karula-Lüllemäe and Ähijärve areas

Karula National Park is located in Valga and Võru Counties. It was created to protect the nature characteristic of Estonia, to promote an ecological lifestyle and to revive the South Estonian country culture. Karula Highlands are 5-8 km wide. You can see the grooves left by melting blocks of ice around Koobassaar and the northern shore of Lake Ähijärv. Karula is rich in lakes, there are 60 of them in the highlands and their muddy bottoms make them good growing places for many plants. The picturesque Kaika hills are also in Karula National Park. The highest peak of Karula is Rebasejärve Tornimähi, where you can climb to the top of a 30 metre tower to enjoy the view.
