Overview
More
The dunes in Rannametsa have always been a popular place among hikers. Trails and information boards have been built here to protect the delicate nature and still introduce the nature of Luitemaa to visitors.The 2.2 km circular trail, parts of which are a boardwalk, passes through the pine forest on the dunes and Tolkuse Fen, leading to the largest swamp pool of the fen (approx. 96 x 210 m). An 18 metre viewing tower has been established on the top of Tornimagi, the highest dune in Estonia, which takes you more than 50 metres above sea level so you can see as far as 50 km away and even spot Kihnu Island.

This a nice trail through the woods and the old coastal swamp. Easy to follow, as most of it is an elevated wooden walkway.

I was there with my boys, nine and ten, and they both loved it. It may be in part because of the abundance of blueberries but I am sure they enjoyed the nature as much as I did. There is a watchtower that overlooks the...More
