We booked a guided canoe tour and also a walk through the forest and the bog. Aivar, our tour guide was very knowledgeable and was sure to point out edible (and delicious) berries. It is really worth visiting and also if you like book a guide, as you‘re sure to see and get to know more than on your own. And also, be sure to take enough bug repellent;)

We were picked up at Riisa Rantso. The guide was in german and excellent. Very interesting typical estonian meal and a nice trip back via canoe. I would recommend.

We had a great day. Aivar picked us up from Parnu Coach station at 9am and drove us to the lodge. Then we walked along road and fields to the bog. Wearing snow shoes we walked into the bog, guided by Algis who showed us numerous berries we could (and did) eat (bilberries,cloudberries, cranberries, blueberries), and plants such as carniverous sundew. We had a dip in a pool, then a delicious local prepared picnic lunch by a river. Afterwards, we canoed back to the lodge, getting there about 3-4pm. Perhaps we were lucky, but we did not encounter any biting insects today. Then Algis gave us a lift back to Parnu, briefly stopping at the beach there. I arranged it by phoning them a few days beforehand. We did this trip from Tallinn, booking online the ~7am and ~7pm Lux Express coach to and from Parnu (1hr50 each way).

The tour to Soomaa is very well organised with pick-up and drop from the hotel, experienced local guides and fantastic traditional Estonian food!!

The national park itself is breathtakingly good and well maintained. I was able to experience the place in good weather at the peak of summer. Beware of horseflies that can be a nuisance and be well covered if you do not want itchy bumps all over.

Highly recommend this one!

The canoe trip was great.

Aivar was really nice with us.

The trip in the nature is peaceful.
Don't miss additional walk !
