Järvselja Nature Reserve

Järvselja Nature Reserve that was established in the south-east of Tartu County in 2006 offers a possibility to enjoy nature and a primeval forest. The forest, that was placed under protection as early as in 1924, has been growing without human interference until today; this has allowed it to acquire a real primeval forest feel. The birds you can observe here are gray-headed woodpecker, pygmy owl, Ural owl, black grouse and great grouse.

Of the single objects that are under protection in Järvselja, the 360-year-old magnificent Kuningamänd pine tree with a thick trunk is worth finding. There are other awe-inspiring old trees here as well. The tallest firs of the Järvselja forests hold the record among Estonian trees with their tops reaching over 40 metres.
