National Park Nature / Park
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.

  • The bog is a beautiful landscape and a nice walk. We also enjoyed exploring the park in general. We did find we needed to mostly find things for ourselves as the only visitors center was well out of our way.
  • Beautiful place. Perfect for afternoon walk or for long lunch
  • Enjoy the Nordic nature here: forest, swamps, beaches, lakes. There is also a unique Soviet submarine base known for its technologies and R&D. Of course, one can only find just ruins today.
  • Beautiful national park with lots of natural places of interest.
  • Unforgettable place that you need to see to understand why Estonia is so lovely
