The hike starts in Vainupea, which was a popular summer resort as early as during the tsarist era, by the romantic Vainupea Chapel located right next to the sea. We will walk along the coast right on the beach and have a small break with a picnic in Mustoja (bring your own sandwiches). We will cross the suspension bridge in Mustoja and continue with our hike.

The hike ends in the coastal village of Altja, which has a colourful history and has been restored to its former glory by the Lahemaa National Park. Altja is also known for its boathouses and tavern, which offers traditional meals of Estonian coastal people. There is also a village swing and a bonfire site for celebrating St John’s Day.
