The Walk

Raxoi Waterfalls
River symphony

We begin our journey by descending along a path, surrounded by a leafy forest, which will take us down to the level of the river where we will find the first of the restored mills. A wooden footbridge begins here, allowing us to comfortably walk along this beautiful riverside landscape bordering the Valga River

After walking a few metres we can see the first and main waterfall which drops to form a pool where we can take a bath if the weather is fine. Next to it there is a wooden staircase that will take us to a second mill and the second waterfall, where we will be able to enjoy this small waterfall before heading back.
