Themes of trail

is taking care of the Estonian nature and Estonian people. This is the reason why Aura is supporting the nature trail and its maintenance in Tabasalu Nature Park. You can enjoy bird watching or discover the diversity of fauna and flora while walking or training in the park. To give a good overview to the visitors the study trails provide a lot of guide-posts and signs about the landscapes, plants and animals living in the area of steep limestone coast or nearby forest. The trail is open year-round – this gives a good opportunity for walking and sport activities with a family, friends, or alone. Aura is inviting you to enjoy nature, but always in a way which leaves nature clean and intact.

Tabasalu Nature Park is located in Rannamõisa Landscape Protection area which was formed in order to protect steep limestone coast and broadleaf forest. Rannamõisa coast became a protected area already in 1959. The height of the cliff is 33-35 meters and it provides a good view on the limestone, sandstone, clay and shale. In 1999 the Estonian Fund for Nature initiated the formation of Tabasalu Nature Park in the landscape protection area. At present the park area is developed and maintained by a non-profit organization Tabasalu Nature Park. The nature study trail was opened in 2006 under the subsidy of Tartu A le Coq Brewery. While making the trail it was kept in mind that it can be used by all nature lovers and also by schoolchildren together with their teachers, families, or by tourist excursions. All stands, signs, and guideposts are easily noticed for their yellow-white color.
