RMK handles the organisation of visits at 13 recreational areas of the state forest, 5 national parks and almost 40 other conservation units across Estonia. “Currently, almost 2000 km of hiking trails, 309 covered fire places and 41 camping areas have been built for visitors,” said Marge Rammo, Head of The Nature Management Department, when introducing the possibilities. In addition, RMK provides accommodation in 24 huts and 18 forest houses.
In order to assist nature visitors, all RMK information points are open from May 15 to September 15, every weekday from 10.00-18.00. The Information points provide advice and informative materials for planning a nature holiday that is full of experiences. In total, there are 27 information points across Estonia, with three additional points established last year – in Viimsi near Tallinn, in Tooma in Jõgeva County and in Otepää.
