Alutaguse National Park covers the vast majority of the Alutaguse Lowland. The region’s distinctive feature has been the sparse human settlement and the high proportion of natural landscape. The core of the national park is made up of extensive bog and forest landscapes. In general, the area is covered with flat swamps, but there are also kame fields, esker systems, and dunes. There are many rest places and hiking trails in Alutaguse National Park and the long hiking trail of RMK runs through the landscape.
Various nature and environmental study programmes are commissioned by the employees of the Iisaku Nature Centre.
