Penijõe - Laiküla Around the Largest Wetland in Northern Europe

The Baltic Coastal Hiking Route takes you on a stroll around the Kasari River delta where it flows into Matsalu Bay and where one of the largest wetlands in Northern Europe has taken shape with large reedy fields, coastal meadows, oxbow lakes and water from the shallow bay, being a notable nesting and stopover site for migratory birds. The itinerary mainly leads through farmland landscapes and small villages. In the surroundings of Kirbla, you can see an elevation of the terrain, which is a former Baltic Ice Lake Island with its ancient coast in the north.
