Ice Age Centre raft trip on Lake Saadjärv

Saadjärve tänav 20, Äksi alevik, Tartu vald, Tartu maakond

REQUEST INFORMATION View on map

The raft trip on Lake Saadjärv offers picturesque views and exciting experiences!

The water of Lake Saadjärv is clear and among the shoal of fish there's a chance to see a rare sight - the lake ball, which is found in abundance in Japan but very rarely in Estonia. In folklore, the Kalevipoeg's slingstones are located here, and there are stories about a treasure, the lake changing its location, and a church sinking to the bottom of the lake. You can learn about the legends of the lake, as well as its inhabitants and spiritual life during the Ice Age Centre raft trips.

The raft departs three times a day from the centre's shore. Additionally, it's possible to book a raft trip, as well as catering and a guided tour.
