Multi-colored sandstone cliffs on the Ahja River. Swallows nests in the wall. A small maiden's cave with many myths. Natural spring water to drink - bring your bottle.

Well-constructed and ecologically sensible paths (circuits of different length) through forested area including medium-sized lake, rapids, meanders, an open meadow, impressive sandstone cliffs and caves, etc. Highly recommended. Great for kids, too.

If you plan to visit Taevaskoja, then be sure that you have enough time to enjoy it. Views are very beautiful hiking roads are pretty good and interesting, but no chance to get lost.

A very nice 3km walk - really beautiful. The signs were not the best but enough landmarks to keep you aware of where you are and where to go. Lots of information signs about the history and nature

This is one of the most known landmark for South-Estonia. The name "Taevaskoja" means Heaven's Hall and that's how you'll feel there - it's a very calming place where to walk around and enjoy the beautiful nature with it's sand walls and rivers. Challenging for...More

Taevaskoda and its nature trail is something I definately suggest to anyone looking for something special in South Estonia and Otepää (where I live now). It is a wonderful place which consists of River Ahja and red sandstone cliffs and a nature trail that follows...More
