Enjoy a trip on an unique set of wheels
The kickbike trip sets off from the Taevaskoja Holiday Centre. The participants will be given their bikes, safety helmets and thoroughly instructed. After which you will head off towards the Ahja river valley nature reserve. You will pass several interesting sights and some thrilling descents as well.
Unlike riding a bicycle, a kickbike puts no pressure on the back, because you are standing up whilst riding. It is advised you switch legs after every 3-10 kicks. That makes the ride less tiring. We offer two different routes for kickbike trips.
1. Kickbike trip along the trails of the Last Relic (Viimne Reliikvia) movie
You will visit the filming locations of the Last Relic movie in the Ahja River valley nature reserve, the Suur and Väike Taevaskoda and various other beautiful places. Along the route the trip guide will tell you interesting stories about wildlife and what makes the Taevaskojad (Heaven’s Halls) so special. With any luck you will encounter interesting birds and animal trails on the route.
The kickbike is very easy to master. The pace for the trip is very relaxed and breaks will be held every 10-15 minutes. The route is a total of 8 kilometres long and takes approximately two hours. The kickbike trip on the routes of the Last Relic movie is suitable for children from nine years of age. Unfortunately the kickbike is simply too big for younger children. However, they are very welcome to join the trip on their own bicycles.
The price of a kickbike trip is 18€ for an adult and 12€ for students.
