What to see and do

Discover our area

The village is a favorite spot for migratory birds, and it's not uncommon to encounter white-tailed eagles in the fields.

Deer, moose, badgers, hedgehogs, cranes, squirrels, and wild boars are the local inhabitants in the surrounding forests, marshes, and fields. The untouched nature in the vicinity has captivated many visitors and won the hearts of foreigners.

It's worth taking a pleasant walk or a bike ride to explore the surroundings. We have created a Google Map with cultural heritage highlights, so that you can visit the main nearby places. Check the map here.

Read more about various visitor attractions in the Western Harju Parish here.

Certainly, explore the RMK hiking trails: Nature Together.

Among our top recommendations are:

* The beautiful Tänavjärv for swimming and canoeing (a lovely sandy beach in the middle of the bog). For those who prefer warmer water and want to splash around, especially with children, there are several swimming spots in Vasalemma quarry. Additionally, you can go for a walk on the health trail, exercise in the outdoor gym, and practice balance in the adventure park for children and toddlers. Next to the health trail is a disc golfi course with 10 baskets.
* At Alliklepa beacht, you can find small fossils.
* For hiking enthusiasts, there is a very enjoyable RMK hiking trail along lake Valgejärve.
* Everyday hikes are pleasant in the woods behind Kõmmaste Kõmmaste (ideal for modern-day hiking - good wide forest paths). You can start, for example, near the Harju-Risti store, and make a detour at Kõmmaste. If it's the time for blueberries, you'll probably already have a full stomach on the way.
* Definitely Keila-Joa, climb Rummu hill, and explore Padise monastery.
* Rätsepa Tourist Farm's animal park and café are worth a visit (open from Tuesday to Sunday).
* On a clear day, Nõva beach is a nice place to sit on the sand and watch the sunset.

* Other points of interest can be found on commonly used maps.

* And don't forget to just be and relax – Uneallika is perfect for that :)

Personally, we enjoy the early mornings on warm days when the sun is already shining but hasn't heated everything up yet – that's just wonderful!
