Summer is the time of festivities in Setomaa. The most church holidays and traditional village celebrations just so happen to take place during the warmer months. Several important events are held in summer, including the Seto Kingdom, Seto Pop-up Cafe Day, Seto Folk, concerts, theater productions, and most of the important church holidays. Some well-known swimming places are the beach at the Värska Sanitorium, Lüübnitsa Beach, and Obinitsa Lake. Seto Line ferries depart from the sanitorium beach for nice, summer excursions. Setomaa is also known as a paradise for berry picking and mushrooming: in summer, chanterelle and boletus mushrooms as well as blueberries and lingonberries are ready for picking.
