Introducing Otepää

The small hilltop town of Otepää, 44km south of Tartu, is the centre of a picturesque area of forests and lakes, scenic hillsides and crisp rivers. The district is beloved by Estonians for both its natural beauty and its many possibilities for hiking, biking and swimming in summer, and cross-country skiing in winter. Some have even dubbed this the 'Estonian Alps' - a teasing reference not to its 'peaks' but to its lovely ski trails.
