Võru County, with its untouched nature, interesting history, distinguished cultural heritage, and lovely people, is hoping to offer memorable experiences for young and old alike. We would like to suggest some sightseeing tours which will help you put together your own tour. The end of each tour marks the beginning of the next, which means that you can actually use the tours to travel all around Võru County, if you like. To do so, you will need to reserve quite a few days, and there are plenty of options for accommodation provided on the map, so you will always have somewhere to rest at the end of each day. The map also includes places to eat. The contact details for the sights and service providers included in the tours can be found in this guide or on the Võru County tourism website: www.visitvoru.ee.
We have divided Võru County into four different tours: the Urvaste-Antsla- Mõniste-Varstu tour, the Rõuge-Haanja tour, the Misso-Vastseliina- Meremäe tour, and the Lasva-Võru- Sõmerpalu tour.
There are several options available when getting acquainted with Võru County, either by car, by bike, or by using public transport. It takes about three hours by car or four hours by bus to reach Võru County from Tallinn, the capital of Estonia. Riga, the capital of Latvia, is roughly 210km from Võru and you can get there from Riga by car or by public transport via Tartu or Valka. Having arrived at Võru Coach Station, you will be welcomed by a painting by Navitrolla, a well-known Estonian painter, on the wall of the building next to the bus station.
