Laskevälja cycling trail (43 km)

Make a fire only in a place prepared and marked for it. The need for firewood in our campsites is very high during the summer, therefore firewood may be out. To avoid disappointment, please take firewood or barbecue coals with you when traveling by car. Do not leave a burning fire unattended! When using a charcoal grill, pour the coals on the fireplace, not under the forest. Extinguish the fire properly, when leaving.
Laskevälja cycling trail introduces the military history and cultural heritage of the Värska area. The trail goes along the former military shooting area used before WWII. On the 43 km trail, it is possible to experience the charm and the challenge of the largest and most elevated kame area in south-eastern Estonia – the Mustoja kame area.
