Luhasoo Landscape Protection Area
Luhasoo Landscape Protection Area was placed under protection in 1981 as the largest complete bog area in Southern Estonia; it covers about 800 ha and is almost untouched by human activity. Luhasoo is very valuable in terms of environmental and landscape protection both as a uniform ecosystem and the habitat of protected species. The bog is unique for its 15 mineral islands that are on average 1 metre high and have sandy soil. Luhasoo nature study trail runs through diverse raised bog, migratory and low bog communities.
