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.
