The newest member of Estonian National Park family, Alutaguse National park expands across 43,000 hectares in Northeastern Estonia.
Alutaguse is Estonia’s sixth national park, protecting the swamps, forest and coastal landscapes as well as the traditional culture of Northeastern Estonia. The Alutaguse region expands across the biggest coniferous forests and swamps in Estonia and Estonia's longest sandy beach.
Some of the landmarks of Alutaguse also include Smolnitsa sand dune area on the north shore of Lake Peipus, the Narva River and one of Northern Europe's biggest wetlands in Puhatu. Here you can spot a nesting ground of the Golden Eagle and watch the Siberian Flying Squirrel and Brown Bear roam.
