Hikes on kicksleds by soomaa.com

In winter, when the rivers and water meadows of Soomaa have frozen over and the weather conditions are favourable, you are welcome to try riding on a kicksled!

The Finnish sleds or kicksleds make it fun to hike on frozen flood areas or forest roads. When planning the route of the hike, we will take into consideration your wishes, experiences, and the weather conditions.

The sled hike will last for two or three hours and is also suitable for children!

In the Riisa village in Soomaa,  the time of early spring floods is known as the fifth season. During that time, there isn't enough room in the river basins of the Halliste and Raudna rivers and their tributaries due the water from the melting snow. As a result, it inundates the floodplain meadows and even the floodplain forests. This is an interesting time, the beginning of the water hiking season when you can go about canoeing in the forest. The biggest floods are during late March and early April.
We organise regular canoeing trips every day in the forests, meadows, and rivers of Soomaa during the flood period. You can join the guided group at a certain times every day.

Time moves differently on the river...
Come and see where the Navesti and Pärnu rivers meet. Enjoy a canoe trip on your own to the picturesque Tori Hell or even go to the site of Estonia's oldest human settlement, Pulli, to take a picture with an ancient dog.
If you're not partial to undertaking a long journey, there's the opportunity to come to shore at Levikivi after Levi's old mill dam.
Put up a tent, spend the night in your motorhome or in our summer camping house, have a barbecue, fish, swim in the river or just relax on the edge of Soomaa. Levikivi farm has something to do for both young and old.
The offer includes two canoes, paddles, life jackets and transport.

Samliku Matkamaja arranges canoeing trips on Pärnu River.
We are located 25 km downstream from Türi and 60 km upstream from Pärnu in the former Samliku school house. Situated next to the river, it makes a great start and end point for canoe trips and an ideal place to bed down for the night during trips lasting several days.
You can camp here as well as swim, fish and have barbecues.

Soomaa offers good and diverse opportunities for canoeing with its multitude of rivers. Before the cold arrives and the rivers are coated with ice, you can enjoy the autumn colours and tranquillity while drifting on the calm rivers of Soomaa. You will choose the length of the trip and thus also how much time it will take. You can also take breaks to stretch your legs and breath together with nature. If you are lucky, you will also meet animals during the hike!
You can book a sauna after the hike for extra fee!

Popular canoe trips take place on the picturesque and quiet rivers of Raudna, Halliste or Lemmjõgi. The duration of the trip depends on the complexity of the trip and the river conditions during different seasons.
