The place is like nothing I've seen before (ok, I live in the middle east). The views are breathtaking and the walking trail is easy and nice. We met a guy who was one of the trail builders, he said they started it in the...More

Lahemaa is Estonia's largest national park and includes coastline, forest, peat bogs and large Ice Age boulders. An hour away by car, it makes a perfect day trip from Tallinn, although you easily spend much longer exploring. We started our visit at the national park...More

It is just over a kilometre to the main viewing spot but those who are fit and enthusiastic can walk much further on the raised wooden walkways over the bogs. Insect repellent is a good idea. Note that toilet facilities are not available though there...More
