Kaali Meteorite Crater, Saaremaa

(2.8/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
Somewhere between two and nine millennia ago, a piece of an enormous asteroid hit the earth and created Kaali Meteorite Crater, which you can still see today. Surrounded by thick forest, this gaping hole in the earth is filled with water, with depths ranging from 1 to 6 m (3 to 20 ft), depending on the amount of rainfall. Walk down a small flight of stairs to the edge of the crater to admire its nearly flawless circular shape, keeping in mind that this uncommon lake was formed by an impact of a 1,000,000 kg (1,000 ton) space rock. Put Kaali Meteorite Crater on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Saaremaa trip generator.

  • Kaali Meteorite Crater is one interesting nature place in area. There is all together 7 smaller craters and the main crater. This is bigest crater field in Eurasia. 
  • Mielemnkiintoinen attraction. A lot of info about the environment. Fit to derogate from the summer or winter. Now, in January, was the only shop open. There is a restaurant, a coffee shop/Café, or even WORK.
