RMK to open their easternmost information point in Narva 14.06

State forests are now closer than ever to the citizens of Ida-Virumaa through RMK’s newest information point in Narva, that offers its guests information about state forest and vacation opportunities in them.

Today at 15:00, a new RMK information point opened in Narva at Peetri plats 3. Anyone interested can visit the RMK here to learn about vacation opportunities available in state forests.

Marge Rammo, head of the RMK Visitor Management Department, said that the Narva information point needed to be opened, as the Penijõe-Aegviidu-Kauksi hiking trail was extended from Narva-Jõesuu to Narva. RMK also wishes to guide tourists from Ivangorod to visit our hiking trails and other tourist objects in Estonian forests.

“Our information points usually exist as parts of RMK visitation centres. Narva’s, however, is located in a rented space that provides rooms and conditions for disseminating information, organising events and promoting eco-friendly attitudes,” said Marge Rammo. The RMK has compiled a list of events for the upcoming six months, including educational film screenings, nature evenings and hikes.

The most popular visitation objects in Ida-Virumaa are: Oru park, Selisoo hiking trail, Kotka hiking trail, Peipsi northern coast camping area, Iisaku watchtower and Kurtna’s lakeside recreational areas.

With Narva added to the list, the RMK now has 18 information centres where anyone interested can learn about the recreational opportunities provided by nature.

The RMK, aka the State Forest Management Centre, manages almost 30% of Estonia and 45% of all Estonian forests. The RMK is the keeper, protector and manager of all forests and other diverse nature biomes belonging to the Republic of Estonia. The RMK grows forests, maintains the values associated with nature, earns income for the government by managing its forests, creates opportunities for physical activity in nature and spreads knowledge about nature.
