Full day tour to Lahemaa National Park

Detail description

This is a full-day excursion to Lahemaa National Park. On the way to the park, you will see one of the biggest Estonian waterfalls – the picturesque Jagala waterfall. Estonia's largest national park is an exciting mix of coastal bluffs, dense forest, 7000-year-old bogs, 18th-century manor houses, and numerous lakes, rivers, and rock-to-sand beaches on the Baltic Sea shore. Palmse manor is the showpiece of Lahemaa. The 18th-century baroque house, open to the public, is filled with period furniture, and you can wander the landscaped grounds to see 17th-century distillery, hotel, and granary. At Palmse Manor you can taste Estonian berry wines which are quite attractive, especially black currant. A few kilometers North of Palmse, on Kasmu Bay, are the old Soviet Coast Guard barracks at Kasmu which now house a maritime museum with excellent exhibits from the Soviet era and the village‘s history. In addition, the 400-year-old fishing hamlet of Altja, in the North - West corner of the park, has been beautifully preserved.
The tour covers intact and cultural landscapes of different types – coastal lowlands, pine forests, steep banks of the limestone plateau, stone fields, waterfalls, and rapids.
