In order to experience something incredible, one does not have to climb Mount Everest or go diving in the ocean. Sledging down a snowy hill in Haanja, running along the Lake Tamula Promenade, or swimming in a lake can also create memorable experiences to be cherished for a long time... A family trip is an ideal opportunity to escape the everyday hustle and bustle and satisfy your love of adventure because, in Viru County, it feels as if the clocks have stopped and all kinds of fun-filled and exciting activities are just a stone’s throw away.
