Hinni Canyon

Located in a specially managed zone of Haanja Nature Park, the most protected area of the park, Hinni Canyon is the only one of its kind in Estonia. 

Carved into sandstone from the Devonian period; Hinni Canyon is a 15-20 m deep, 300 m long, steep gulch with the rapidly flowing Enni creek cutting deeply into its sandstone bottom. 

Intertwined layers of 5-6 m high white and yellow sandstone outcrops are exposed along the steep sides of nearly 200 m of the gulch. The fallen trees criss-crossing on the ground, the small cave spring nearby and the rapidly narrowing trail add to the ancient feel of the area surrounding Hinni Canyon.
