Luite campfire site

Viljandi County, Sakala Recreation Area
The campfire site is on the historical Sakala Road and is suitable for hikers both for a brief stop or an overnight stay, even for larger groups. The sandy dune ridge is a remnant of the Baltic Ice Lake. When you walk barefoot on the sand, you may easily feel that the sea is not far. The pine forest with its well-groomed undergrowth offers joy of discovery for gatherers, who pick loads of berries and mushrooms there. Lovers of medicinal herbs can find here relief for kidney problems – the bearberry.
