Otepää is widely regarded as Estonia’s winter capital and we are proud to bear this honorary title. A small town nestled in southern Estonian hills and valleys, the picturesque domed landscape and winding lakes make the Otepää region an enjoyable experience for everyone.
Otepää is first and foremost known as a ski resort with undoubtedly one of the best winter sports centres in Estonia – Tehvani Sport Centre. Here You can practise winter sports, hiking and camping. Today Kääriku Sports Center has also become the center for the Estonian athletics.
In addition to sports centers, we are proud to have a well-established infrastructure – there are winter resorts, luxurious spa hotels and other accommodation facilities, shops and many restaurants with opportunities to enjoy good estonian cuisine.
There is something special about Otepää that brings our guests back again and again. Be it an echo of distant times – Otepää is the cradle of the Estonian national flag, because it was here that the first Estonian national flag was blessed, or a meaningful symbol of our region – the bear, because Otepää’s name means “the bear’s head”.
Every guest will always leave with wonderful and bright memories!
We are waiting for you to discover the possibilities of Otepää and enjoy the beautiful nature!
The Head of Council – Chairman
