Soomaa National Park was established in 1993 to protect untouched bogs, glades rich in species, wooded meadows, and a variety of forests. Its diverse nature, unique suspension bridge, distinctive skiff culture, and five seasons have made it a very popular attraction.
A nature centre has been established to Tõramaa, the place where the old stable roads crossed. There, visitors can inquire information about the hike trails and local services, and visit the permanent exhibition.
The most popular sights in the national park are the Beaver Trail, the Riisa and Kuuraniidu nature study trails, the Ingatsi boardwalk leading to 8 metres on the highest bog in Europe, the watchtowers, and the suspension bridges.
