Lahemaa rahvuspark, Vihula
(4.9/5 based on 95+ 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, Laane-Viru County holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Lahemaa rahvuspark and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • A trip to the Park worth anyway. The Moor is the absolute highlight of the Park. But also the coast in Käsmu pays off.

  • In Lahemaa National Park, are in addition to the wilderness and beaches, small villages and mansions. Sea beaches around the many points are usually Rocky and it is permitted to use a spinning rod, to catch salmon and sea trout off the rocky coast. Wild animals such as bear-Moose-wild boar and many other kinds of animals are found in the forests. While ornithologists are happy to be in Lahemaa! There are also campsites with restrooms and finished carved wood, in some places! Nice National Park!

  • Rahman is only the old town of Tallinn and one day enough because in the suburbs-National Park Tour. I take 1人旅 people like me could not understand English well, so tours are recommended is. Viru bog is really nice. Value space surrounded 360 degrees, in good weather, the temperature was just right, and legs to stretch your body is.

  • 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
