Lake Parika observation tower

The 100-metre-long boardwalk of Parika bog is located on the 17th kilometre of Viljandi-Kolga-Jaani road.
It is believed to be about 9,000 years old, which makes it one of Estonia’s oldest bogs. It is a bog with trees, mostly pine trees.
The observation tower on the edge of the bog offers a view of the incredible bog landscape and the birds on the lake.
