On a canoe in the “jungle” of the River Kõpu

A canoe trip on the River Kõpu starts like most others do – a narrow running river, a few fallen trees lining the water, and some maneuvering around rocky shores.

In this canoe trip though, the environment changes suddenly – large reed fields begin; there are river banks with no trace of human activity, and in some places, the river is barely wide enough for the canoe to pass. In a mere moment, you have arrived to a tiny waterlily and nuphar filled “lake”.

This is the jungle of the River Kõpu.

During the second half of the summer, the vegetation of the lake form a true labyrinth – canoers on this expedition must follow the correct waterways to reach a picnic area destination, where they will be greeted with warm pancakes and jam.

For groups of at least 12.
