Haanja–Karula Recreation AreaThis recreation area with its varied landscape and biodiversity lies in the area between the Haanja, Karula and Korneti uplands. The rolling terrain is rich in rivers and lakes – it offers ideal opportunities for versatile recreation, for example walking or cycling, water adventure, fishing, picnicking or nature observation.
The recreation area is subdivided into three parts: Tõrva, Pähni and Taheva. The Taheva subdivision offers visitors opportunities for active nature recreation: cycling, walking and car tours. The single objects in this area are interconnected with cycling trails. Pähni subdivision with the Nature Centre primarily provides nature education activities on nature study trails and classroom. The third subdivision of Tõrva consists of single objects and is intended for car travellers interested in the cultural assets and heritage of Estonia, with some rest stops in the nature.
