Canoeing with torches in the twilight of August 17 offers a very special experience. Together with the fire dancers show, it can become your brightest experience this summer. Come and discover the water world of river Emajõgi!


The cheerful and adventurous series of river trips “Discover the Emajõgi river” invites you to take part in the water world of river Emajõgi from June. You can get to know the beautiful and fragile river basin of the Emajõgi better on themed river trips that take participants to untouched places. The trips invite you to discover river life in all four seasons – spring, summer, autumn and winter, and also encourage you to contribute to maintaining the ecosystem there.

Canoeing in the twilight of an August evening offers a very special experience. Together with the show of fire dancers, it can become your brightest experience this summer! The colors of the sunset, the light of the torches, the sounds of nature in the evening, the veil of fog over the water and the city lights reflecting back from river Emajõgi – all this helps to step out of the everyday and turn a gloomy August night into a magical one.

Under the guidance of experienced canoeing guides, we drive as a single group through the nature upriver on the edge of the city to Kvissental, turn around there and head back to Tartu. Torches are attached to the noses of the canoes for lighting and creating the mood. The canoe ride ends with a show of fire dancers.

The difficulty level of this adventure is easy and it is suitable even for complete beginners.

Night canoeing is well suited for a romantic experience to come with your partner.

The adventure lasts about 2 hours.

The number of participants is limited, early registration guarantees a place in the group.
