The ecological reserve was established in 1957. The area of the ecological reserve constitutes 1873 ha. Different forest types can be seen here, from swamp forests to high pine forests. The Burgundy snail, the biggest land snail in Estonia, lives on the grasslands and greenwoods. The wooded meadows, semi-natural biotic communities that are typical for Saaremaa but almost extinct, are preserved in the Viidumäe ecological reserve by means of traditional maintenance methods.
Good to know: The Viidumäe ecological reserve is located in the highest and oldest part of Saaremaa. 85% of Viidumäe are covered with woods.
