The island of Muhumaa is a place where time seems to have stopped and the sea seems to speak. Sleepy fishing villages, working windmills, country houses with thatched roofs, many wild goats, pigs, elk and birds are what characterise life on the island. Muhu St Catherine's Church in Liiva village with its pagan tombstones is one of the oldest in Estonia.
Having arrived in Kuivastu by ferry, start your trip from there and soon you will see the Kuivastu tavern with dolomite columns. Right at the beginning of the route, hikers are directed to a side road for a short while. There was a paved road there once, but it's no longer visible from under the gravel. From Hellamaa, head to the north coast. Kesselaid with its wild nature can also be seen from the seashore.
Ride through the Lõetsa village. Near the coast, there is a protected area of Rannaniidi cliffs.
From the large pastures of Lõetsa village, head to the forest road which will take you past the Muhu wine farm. When you get on the big road again, head to Üügu Bluff. The north-eastern/northern coast of Muhumaa is bordered by smaller and bigger bluffs. Üügu Bluff, which is about 300 m long, is the most impressive of them. In addition to the caves tall enough for adults to walk in, at the foot of the bluff you can find the Silmaallika spring from Estonian folk tales as well as more than 20 different types of orchids.
Riding a little further, you will reach Nõmmküla and Pallasmaa, where the best beaches of Muhumaa are located. Continuing the ride, you will see the Rinsi Orthodox Church and the Piiri granary. A nice smooth paved road will then take you to one of the most famous places in Muhumaa - the village of Koguva. Koguva village is a historically known ancient free village. All the buildings there are under state protection as architectural monuments. The village complex is the most remarkable in the Baltic Sea region. Find out more about the fascinating history of this area in the Muhu Museum located nearby.
Continue your journey through Rootsivere and Nautse. There is an ostrich farm in Nautse, which by now has many more exotic birds other than just ostriches.
You will reach the highway again by the Eemu Windmill. The route ends at the President's Alley, from where the 3 km long dam over Väike Strait that leads to Saaremaa begins.
The route runs mostly on asphalt, with gravel and forest roads making up just over 10 km.
It is best to start the trip either from Kuivastu, Väike Strait dam or Koguva.
