Fantastic rafting trip on the Ahja River

Kiidjärve Looduskeskus, Kiidjärve küla, Põlva vald, Põlva maakond


The trip is suitable for groups of friends, families and schoolchildren. The slow waters of the winding river flow by large pine trees and ferns growing on the banks, steep sandstone outcrops covered in forest and caves.

This area is the birthplace of many a folk legend – about underground castles,  Devil's mills, virgins weaving fabric in deep caves, forest elves wondering about the river and water nymphs sitting on large rocks.

Duration of the trip: 1.5-2 hours

We have a raft for 7-8 persons and another for 9-10.

Minimum size of the group: 6-7 people

The trip begins at Kiidjärve Nature Centre and ends at the dam of the Taevaskoda hydroelectric power station. After the trip, you can have a picnic by the river.
