Five seasons

Flood is called Fifth Season by local village people of Soomaa national park. The spring flood can raise the water levels by as much as five meters. It is not a catastrophe, it is a regular natural hydrological feature, it is a SEASON. Everywhere floods – meadows, fields, forests, roads and even houses.

The floods in Soomaa are a combined result of the flat relief, small height differences in the lower reaches of the rivers and many small streams discharging their water close together. Usually Fifth season comes at the end of March or beginning of April.

Guided canoeing trips are organized every day during Fifth Season. For joining please call us +3725061896 or email
