Setomaa guide tour for gourmets

REQUEST INFORMATION View on map

The Setomaa guide tour introduces the characteristic way of life and culture of the Setos through food, sights, and nature.
The journey from Tartu takes you to Põlva and then to Värska, where we will get acquainted with Seto culture (Värska Farm Museum, Seto flavours at the Cafe Tsäimaja, you can order a performance of Seto leelo, a polyphonic singing tradition) and business (Waterpark and sanatorium, local handicrafts, and souvenirs), as well as history and proximity to the Russian border (Northern Camp, Saatse Boot).

We will enjoy Seto-gourmet in Maagõkõnõ on the Estonian border (possibility to order a workshop on sõir, a quark cheese made of unaged cottage cheese).

We will then have a look at the Koidula border checkpoint and finally, return to Tartu.
