Taevaskoja, on the banks of the ancient valley of the Ahja River, is one of the most frequently visited sites in southern Estonia. The sandstone outcrops and ancient river here form the most beautiful part of the Ahja River Landscape Reserve. Legends talk of caves and secret passageways and of demons and mermaids. A walk from Saesaare dam to the outcrop at Little Taevaskoja, Emaläte brook, Neitsikoobas cave and the outcrop at Big Taevaskoja, which rises 22.5 metres above the river, is a good idea whatever the time of year. The beautiful and exciting natural setting attracts hikers in every season - it is a place that every Estonian visits at least once in their life!
