“We booked the trip to Lahemaa National Park with Prangli Travel, and am I glad we did. The day was wonderful from start to finish. Our excellent tour guide Mikk met us and we then went by minibus from the tourist information centre in Tallinn. Our first stop was Jägala Waterfall, and throughout the journey, Mikk told us much about our surroundings, nature in Estonia and interesting facts about the countryside and its people which would only be known by locals.
Jägala Waterfall was amazing. Although not anything like such well-known sights as Niagara, Iguazu Falls or Victorial Falls, it is nevertheless wonderful to see and is the highest waterfall in the Baltic states. To see it frozen was something I had never expected to see. Following this, we all went on to the Viru bog for a walk in the forest, which was lovely. Much of this walk was on wooden boards as the whole area was a lake many thousands of years ago, and the light fall of snow which we had as we began our walk, made it a perfect picture postcard scene.
Lunch was taken at very nice country restaurant, quite new to Prangli Travel, called Lahemaa Kohvikann, situated in the willage of Palmse. Here, we enjoyed absolutely delicious homemade traditional Estonian dishes. ur next stop was the old fishing village of Altja and then Sagadi Manor.
I cannot recommend this tour highly enough. Mikk was a very good guide, very friendly and with a good command of English and I thought it was very good value for money. Although Estonia is largely a very flat country, it is heavily forested with pines and silver birches and with the abundance of junipers and ice in the forest, you would have no trouble geeting drunk quite quickly if you were a fan of gin and tonic ! We will never forget the beautiful Jagala waterfall and we certainly hope to return.“
