Hiiumaa Islets Landscape Reserve
Hiiumaa Islets Landscape Reserve information
Saarnaki, Hanikatsi, Vareslaid and other islets off southeastern Hiiumaa form the Hiiumaa Islets Landscape Reserve. This is a breeding place for some 110 bird species including avocets, eider ducks and goosanders, as well as a migration halt for swans, barnacle geese and other species. Over 600 plant species - more than half of Estonia's total - occur here.
It's possible to spend a night on deserted and peaceful Saarnaki or Hanikatsi provided permission is sought first from the reserve centre at Salinõmme on Hiiumaa.
