However, the true beauty of nature lies in its duality, hilled reaches come with the splendour of valleys. As with the nation’s hills, the most beautiful valleys of Estonia can be found in the South. The “dramatic” nature of the Rõuge primeval valley, the beauty of Ööbikuorg (Nightingale Valley), or the Kütiorg hiking trails (Hunter Valley) and the Hinni canyon are all, definitely, worth a visit.
Additionally; canoers, fishermen, hikers and lovers of silence will find another paradise in the primeval valley of the Võhandu river. Up to 30 m deep in some places, it shows off Devonian sandstone banks and rich meadows of flowers and butterflies. Likewise, the primeval valley of Ahja river, home to the magical place of Taevaskoja, and the banks of Suur Emajõgi (the Great Mother River) are quiet, peaceful places to reconnect with your roots and find stillness.
