With a few days in Tallinn, I decided to venture out of the charming city for a bit with a trip to Lahemaa National Park for a day of wandering around its beautiful greenness.
The highlight was the long boardwalk (around 3.5km) which takes you over the Viru Bog. It definitely wouldn’t be ideal to fall off it though, since it wasn’t clear how deep the bog went!
I also really enjoyed the area around Palmse Manor house, which is peaceful and scenic. There’s a café here where you can have a coffee and enjoy the view.
There isn’t too much to say about the day, I had a nice group who had booked along side me and a chilled out guide showing us around. Lahemaa for me was more just about the natural scenes hence, here are some favourite shots from my tour.
How to get there:
I booked through my hostel, Monk’s Bunk, and thought it was a little pricey at 40 euros as there were no meals included, but we did get an English speaking guide who drove us around to a few various locations through out the entire day.
Lahemaa NP is only around 45 minutes drive out of Tallinn therefore, if you had a car hired I’m sure it would be quite easy to do it independently.
Going independently by bus seems a bit more difficult, from when researching it before I went however, it is possible to get to at least Palmse Manor this way. The further reaches of the park may be more of a challenge or not even possible, via public transport.
