Lahemaa rahvuspark, Vihula

(4.9/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
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. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Vihula holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Lahemaa rahvuspark and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • 从塔林出城,经过皮里塔海滩再向东就算进入拉赫玛国家公园的范围了。其中最有名的景点是帕尔姆斯庄园,公园的面积十分广阔,需要自驾游览。深秋季节森林逐渐换上“冬装”很是漂亮。  more »

  • If you're visiting Tallinn and fancy a trip out of town, this is easily a one day trip. Rent a car and go here in summer or winter and enjoy hiking in the striking forests and marshes. Beavers to lynx and moose are plenty here.
  • National Park. Nice forrest en Manor Houses to visit. Nice vieuw on the sea shore.
  • Really beautiful area, massive too. Plenty of hiking trails, picnic spots and conservation areas. Along the coast there are some lovely quiet beaches, dome have basic facilities, others have snack bars or shops. RMK do a wonderful job of keeping the place tidy and pleasant. Camping is generally free (basic) and fires are allowed in designated areas. Be sure to pick up a map and consult guides before starting your adventure. Be sensible, and remember to take any litter away with you.
  • Big National park with many different paths. Signs will guide you throughout the whole area and give information about the nature.
  • One of the best kept secrets of Estonia with the special "Viru bog " that worth a visit and a walk around
