What to Expect?

The owner of Nurmeotsa, grill chef Aare, welcomes everyone with hot coffee and a nice morning bite. After the briefing, we will move to Lake Vidrike, from where we will start a kayak tour passing through 12 Kooraste lakes, connecting streams and the river Pühajõgi. The surroundings are breathtakingly picturesque, all the lakes surrounded by small hills have different vibes and the streams are like jungle rivers hidden in lush nature.. almost ready for anacondas to appear.

You can properly charge your batteries, see Estonia from a new angle, go through exciting canals, get a good workout, experience a bit of adventure and climbing in nature. Everything in just the right amount, not too little and not too much. Without health problems, everyone can do it. People aged 10-65 have successfully participated in this tour in the past.

Having reached the lake Uiakatsi through water and nature, we land again on the bridge of Nurmeotsa and enjoy lunch prepared by the host. After delicious food, a little rest and sharing, we will experience a real smoke sauna, enjoy the warmth, old traditions and let the body recover.

Clean and rested, we will soon sit around a big table in the beautiful summer kitchen to enjoy a wonderful three-course BBQ gourmet dinner and good company.
