The old folk saying about this lovely area, known locally as the ‘Estonian Switzerland’ states that the devil wrinkled up the ground in Kõrvemaa.

The landscape is characterised by its ‘mountains’, swamps, swamp lakes, and forests. The ‘mountains’ are actually steep eskers formed by melting permafrost. The largest bogs are Koitjärve, Kõnnu Suursoo, Võhma, and Kakerdaja. There are about a hundred lakes, bogs, and ponds.
Come for a hike, ride a bicycle, ski, or walk. The camping areas and campfire sites are perfect for nature photographers, bird and animal watchers, and berry and mushroom pickers.

The Visitor Centre shares information about holiday options and hiking trails; you can also visit exhibitions, watch nature films, and participate in study programmes.
