Overview of Hostel
Kalda Farm is a holiday centre located in Iigaste village on the bank of Emajõgi river in Valgamaa county. We are members of 'Eesti Maaturism' - Estonian Rural Tourism - and 'Eesti Noortehostelite Ühendus' - Estonian Youth Hostels Association - and offer accommodation according to their high standar
The airports Riga and Tallinn are 180 km and 280 km away. We recommend to travel through Riga because public transport to Valga is more convenient.
For guests from Western Europe the 'classical' land route is like this:
Berlin - Frankfurt/Oder - Poznan - direction towards Warsaw. At Kutno turn northward towards Augustow and Suwalki. Cross the border to Lithuania: Kaunas, Panevezys and into Latvia. Take the ring road of Riga and follow the highway to Pleskava till the exit towards Valmiera. The border crossing point into Estonia is at Valka/Valga.
From Jaani Kirik in Valga take Kuperjanovi street, cross the traffic lights towards TAMBRE, cross the railway and follow the forest road for 16 kilometers. Cross VÄIKE-EMAJÕGI, turn right after the bridge and follow the sign posts.
There is a bus line Valga - Antsla three times a day. It leaves at Valga station. Get off at 'Iigaste tee' and follow the sign posts.
If you take the Valga-Otepää bus, get off at Laatre. It is 6 kilometres to the farm.
In case you just missed the bus and need our pick-up service just give us a call!.
Kalda Talu Puhkekeskus is situated in the border area towards Latvia, 20 km away from the border town of Valga/Valka on the road to Otepää and Tartu. Riga and Tallinn are about the same distance away - what should be of interest to clients of Ryan Air and Easyjet. The village of Iigaste is part of Tolliste community, the nearest hamlet being Laatre. There are a GP's surgery, a pharmacy and grocery shops. The local administration is situated there, too. Iigaste is an agricultural area, surrounded by thick forests. To the west is the town of Valga/Valka, divided between Estonia and Latvia, to the east is the winter sports area around Otepaa, to the south stretches the Karula National Park, a landscape of wooded hills with numerous small lakes. Predominant activities are all about roaming the countryside: in summer by walking, jogging, biking, swimming, canoeing, in winter cross-country skiing, tobogganing, ice-skating and ski-jumping. At any rate there is a lot to discover in fauna and flora all year around.
