Rebasmäe spring

Rebasmäe spring is the biggest spring of its kind in Põlva County. It is accessible via a boardwalk, although before you reach it you need to descend a long set of stairs into the ancient valley and cross the bridge over Rebasmäe Creek. The trail ends by the spring, which has crystal clear water rich in iron compounds. It has a unique flavour and red tinge and is well worth trying. Water pours from the spring at a rate of 30 litres per second.
