Canoe trip on the outskirts of Tartu

Canoeing on the outskirts of Tartu is a convenient way to get away from the city for couple of hours to enjoy the greenery and calmly flowing river Emajõgi.

The start and end of the canoe tour is only a quarter of an hour’s walk from the Tartu town hall, although formally the route fits within the city limits of Tartu, it is still a nature trip rather than a city tour.

The route runs upstream to village Kvissentali and then heads back to Tartu. This canoe ride is also suitable for complete beginners, the river is calm in the Tartu area and no special preparations or skills are needed to participate this trip.

The trip lasts about 2 hours, the length of the route is about 6 km, this tour takes place during the daytime.
