OtepÃ¤Ã¤ is one of the palces in Estonia where you can always find snow during the winter. Why? Because OtepÃ¤Ã¤ is situated in upcounty and far from the sea. Once in every season we face a little snow-catastrophy, when the only possible way to get around is by snowmobile. Sometimes even these vehicles aren't enough. The weather you can see from your home window isn't usually the same we have in OtepÃ¤Ã¤. To believe this you better take a look at our webcam, check weather, or call us.
OtepÃ¤Ã¤ is the only region in Estonia with official snowmobile trails. In addition we have been developing a special private area for all snowmobilers - Safari Park, with attractive trails about 200 km long for various purposes, from beginners to extreme snowcross needs.
Trails in Safari Park are maintained constantly and snow conditions can last up till Aprill or even longer.
At spring, when snow has gone from everywhere else in Estonia, we have made last snow safaris at +18 degrees C, wearing only a T-shirt. Unbelievable, but true !
WHERE IS OTEPÃÃ ?
It's a nice little town at southern Estonia where you have many different possibilities to spend your vacation. Population isn't big but during the season weekends it's quite owercrowded. Motorways are decent.
In OtepÃ¤Ã¤ you can find many different places to eat and there are various possibilities for accomodation in wide price range.
Also you can find good opportunities for conferences and seminars.
More special the service you need, more limited is the resource. Therefore, for facilities with limited acess, it's always better to make reservations in time.
