Lake Suurjärv, or as the locals call it, ’Witch’s Lake’, which is located in a deep primeval valley, forms part of a chain of lakes in Rõuge valley. Lake Suurjärv in Rõuge is the deepest of the Estonian lakes – 38 m. There is a public sandy beach near the lake and the hiking trail in the Rõuge Primeval Valley runs along its shore.
In the middle of every year, Rõuge Water Party and Boat Race take place on the lake. Saarsilla Farm, which is located in the immediate proximity of the lake, rents boats for up to 10 people.
