Estonia is full of dozens of hiking trails that take you through forests and wetlands and along the banks of rivers and lakes.
While you might see different animals or take different paths, one thing always remains the same - the hunger that comes after a long hike in nature! Thankfully, Estonia has a lot to choose from and plenty of great spots to stop and cook something tasty while you're out in nature.
Where to Camp
Estonia remains a dream destination for anyone looking for a calming walk through nature. The numerous trails offer something for every hiker.
To help you better understand the best places to go camping in Estonia as well as the best ways to take a break and enjoy the food, we've put together a few ideas for camping sites. Most of these campfire sites have a fire pit, rain canopies, dry toilets, and rubbish bins. However, you should find out what you should bring in advance, such as firewood or charcoal, and remember that waste must be taken from the wild if there is no bin available.
So, let's find out which campsite sounds best for you so can start planning your own visit!
