Sutlepa – Hosby – Österby – Einbi – Paslepa – Hara
Noarootsi used to be an island, but over time the land has risen and connected it to the mainland. The Swedish settlement was established in the middle of the 13th century, and the villages there have parallel names in both Estonian and Swedish. The route takes the cyclist through small fishing villages and introduces the history of coastal Sweden.
The St. Catherine's Church in Noarootsi, which stands out against the background of the Swedish red houses, served as a fortress in the Middle Ages. Saare Manor and the Lyckholm Museum display the history of the village, exhibiting former agricultural tools and household items.
Those interested in nature can meet around 206 species of birds on the hiking trail, and another 7 km long hiking trail that partly runs on a boardwalk through reed beds starts at the observation towers.
Österby Harbour and the pier are built by local farmers. The pier offers a view of the city of Haapsalu. Paslepa Manor and many interesting beach areas are also on the way.
The trail passes through many fascinating and little-known places of this interesting part of the country and offers a lot to discover.
Almost half of the route runs on paved roads.
You could start your trip from the main road by Sutlepa, Hosby or Pürksi.
