4.8
#1 of 19 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.

    It's amazing that this ancient moorland landscape has survived this day until the. A walk across the plank paths that carry over the marshy ground, with page views in dark bog Lakes and silent Heather beds is magical and calming. Deceleration pur!

    A must for those who love the outdoors: from hiking to mountain biking, all surrounded by dense forests near the sea. Fairy some villages. Finally, the concrete possibility of spotting wildlife.

    One of the nation's oldest national parks with plenty of sea and beach vegetation. Suitable for cycling and nature camp but also for hiking!

    Absolutely fantastic! Genuine nature at its natural best. Amazing woods. Great manor houses. Fantastic beaches. Totally recommended for a great vacation. :)

    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.

    An essential visit in Estonia, to see the typical landscapes of the country. A short trip from Tallinn, so it is perfect for a day excursion, but enjoyed better if you stay overnight.

    Very diverse Park, from nature walks to history to the beach. Hard not to like the place.
