Pühajärve Hiking Marathon on kick scooters
The Pühajärve Hiking Marathon on kick scooters will take place in the Sports Mecca of Otepää for the fourth time.

If you do not have a personal kick scooter, you can buy or rent one from the Loodusturism.ee team by submitting the relevant forms.
Pre-registration is required on the website of loodusturism.ee!

Leigo Lake Music Festival
The Leigo Lake Music Festival is a perfect example of how to bring together nature and music to create unique and truly memorable experiences. Concerts on a variety of stages showcase music from classical to rock, with the summer's evening culminating in a Leigo-style display of fireworks - both traditional and of the floating tea light variety. The performances and the venue both add to one another to create something very special.

Sangaste Rye Day
Rye has always been the most important food product for Estonians. Bread meant hard work and lots of effort. The cold-hardy and highly productive Sangaste rye, developed by Fr. G. M. Berg, the owner of the Sangaste castle complex, is the first knowingly developed rye variety that is still being cultivated in the world.
To honour rye, Sangaste Rye Day is celebrated during the first weekend of August. In the courtyard of the Sangaste Castle, you can attend a fair, participate in various workshops, a scythe race, and several competitions. An annual running competition will also be held.
Local performers will perform so you could dance and sing along.
Come and visit us!
