Jägala Waterfall

Jägala Waterfall is a waterfall in the lower course of the Jägala River, approximately 4 km before the river flows into the Gulf of Finland. The waterfall is approximately 8 metres high and more than 50 metres wide. It is the widest natural waterfall in Estonia.

The waterfall is a peculiar sight to see in winter, when the water freezes in cold weather and becomes a glistening ice wall with large icicles. A tunnel surrounded on both sides by ice sometimes forms in between the ice hanging down from the edge of the waterfall and the wall of the waterfall.
Interesting to know: in terms of fishery, the lower course of the Jägala River from the waterfall to the mouth of the river is one of the most valuable ones in Estonia – large trout and salmon resources can be found here.

  • Could be better

    Jagala waterfall could be better attraction if river have more water. Unfortunately, this summer is very dry and without rains :(

  • Worth a look

    Went here on the way back to Tallinn to catch flight home. Definitely worth going it's like a mini Niagara falls, the water probably drops about 8 metres when we were there it was only going over...

  • Really beautiful waterfall

    It is not Victoria or Iguazu falls, but it is worth stopping. The waterfall is just 50m away from the carpark. It's very accessible. It is possible to walk down and admire the waterfall from below.a
