When vast amounts of water run down the Sakala Upland, the rivers of Soomaa cannot contain it all. The water flows over meadows and forests, and covers roads, disrupting connection with the outer world.


The floods are called the “fifth season” by the people of Soomaa, because floods occur nearly every year. The fifth season, however, is the best time to explore the landscape of Soomaa, using a canoe.
