Lahemaa is a national park 80km east of Tallinn that offers beautiful old growth forests, bogs and lovely stretches of the coast. Late summer is the time when the mushrooms go crazy and you see millions of them.
The information center in Palmse has maps and other information material (in english, german & estonian). To explore the diversity either go there by car or rent a bicycle. It is rather tough to explore the park with public transport.
The village of Ksmu on one of the peninsulas was known in the past for the first Captain’s School in Estonia and the renowned ship-building history of Ksmu dates back to 18-19th century. Nowadays the village with its remote beaches behind the forests is just a wonderful place fo enjoy warm summer days away from crowds.
