We are going hiking away from all too touristy sites and trails. The main draws for northern Estonia are the Lahemaa National Park and Kõrvemaa Nature Reserve. Perfect for a day trip out of Tallinn, these serve as an authentic taster of natural and cultural landscapes in Estonia. We are going to drive through the park, visit some picturesque small villages and see some beautiful old manor houses on the way. Afterward, there is a chance for a tasty lunch in an authentic local tavern.
Located south of the Lahemaa national park, the large forested Kõrvemaa area is home to a variety of animals. Many hiking trails combine so many different landscapes that it seems like you travel through different countries. Most people come to Kõrvemaa for its forests, lakes, and marshes. Here you can wander across the wooden trails in local bogs, climb the hills and go hiking on sandy roads in the wilderness. There are over 100 different lakes in Kõrvemaa alone.
The hike will take up to 2-3 hours and require moderate physical preparation. It's a good place for some amazing nature photography or just relaxing by the lake in a pine forest.
