Gliding across the Rummu lake with a SUP board is pure joy.

It is a relaxing activity that, after a little practice, is within the reach of most people. At Paekalda, there are both regular and large XXL SUP tables, which can accommodate the whole family at the same time.

Rafting or canoe trips

Rafting and canoeing are fun team activities that are affordable for everyone.

Raft and canoe trips with different structures are organized in the Rummu quarry, where you pass over the underwater world, and as a stopover you can also visit the famous Rummu ash mountains and the area of the prison walls.

Some hikes also include an exciting tour of the old buildings of the Murru prison.

Lighted raft tours

At dusk, you can explore the water depths of the Rummu quarry with a lighted bottom motor raft and/or rubber rafts.

These trips are ideal for anyone who wants to spend an evening exploring the nocturnal Rummu quarry lake. You can sit comfortably on the raft and enjoy the views while the raft travels around the lake. However, if you are interested in moving the oars yourself, you can go on a trip with lighted rubber rafts.

In the darkness of night, we get to know the underwater prison ruins, the sunken forest and other exciting things that lie in the depths of the water. With the help of lighting, the lake can be seen from a completely different side than we are used to during the day.

Padis monastery 5km

Padis Monastery was a Cistercian monastery built in Padis in the 14th century, founded by monks from Dynamünde. Padis Monastery is an architectural and historical object of great importance both in Estonia and throughout Northern Europe.

The construction of the Padis monastery went on for more than 200 years with breaks. Around 1250, the Dynamünde monastery built an early Gothic limestone chapel in Padise.

In 1305, the Danish king Erik Menved gave permission for the construction of a magnificent fortified monastery complex, which began to be built in 1317. The establishment of the monastery was probably already planned in the 13th century. The monastery was built near the ancient fortress of Padis of the Estonians.

By 1343, the first or basement floor and part of the walls of the main floor were completed. Then the Jüriöö uprising began and the monastery was burned and 28 monks in the monastery were killed.
