Lahemaa rahvuspark, Vihula

4.7
#1 of 35 in Nature in Estonia
Home to thick forests, bogs, and long stretches of coastal landscape, Lahemaa rahvuspark represents the largest of its kind in the country. Originally founded in 1971 as the Soviet Union's first national park, the reserve historically was an important fishing zone. Many boardwalks here allow you to explore the more than 72,520 hectares (179,201 acres) of forest and marine foliage, including areas of cliffs and rocky shorelines. Watch for some of the area's buildings from its military past, as well as baroque civilian country manors. You may even spot a few animal residents, including lynx, bears, and wolves.

  • The forest is thick and tall, beautiful coast, marshes. Unique plants and animals. Small towns and villages. Maximum of nature, at least human presence especially in winter.
