Vilsandi hiking trails

The Island of Vilsandi can be accessed by boat from Papisaare harbour or, in the summer, by foot.

The marked hiking trail that is almost 5 km long starts from the tip of Kuusnõmme Peninsula and runs across islets to Väike-Vilsandi.

Two hiking trails on Suur-Vilsandi start from the lookout tower in the centre of the island. The 8 km study trail leads you down the southern shore line along the coral reefs to the lighthouse and then back through the woods on the northern shore. The second hiking trail goes to Vesiloo island and passes an ICP integrated monitoring zone surrounded by a fence.

The Vilsandi National Park is the oldest nature reserve in the Baltics as well as closest to the sea. It would be sensible to visit the Vilsandi information point in Loona first.
