Taevaskoda nature trail

Taevaskoda hiking trail is located in the Ahja River Landscape Reserve. The trail starts in the Saesaare car park and runs along both banks of the Ahja River, where the outcrops of Väike and Suur Taevaskoda, caves with springs and picturesque views catch your eye. At the beginning of the hiking trail, there is an information board with a map of the recreational area, and along the trail, signs in Estonian, English and Russian help you find the way. Visitors in a wheelchair can explore the trail until Väike Taevaskoda (about 2 km back and forth).

Good to know: due to a cave-in at Emaläte, the part of the trail leading upwards from Emaläte is closed to visitors.

    Great walk!
