"Altja: Clouds, Water, and Rocks" Altja by Kathrin_E

Altja Travel Guide: 11 reviews and 54 photos

Altja is a former fishermen's village in Lahemaa National Park. Nowadays there are no professional fishermen any more. Most houses have been turned into summer houses and belong to families who live in Tallinn and elsewhere.

The coastline consists of small bays and peninsulas full of granite boulders, erratics the glaciers of the ice age have left behind. A little hike along the shore is a must in Altja. The clouds in the sky put on a show for free.

Outside the summer holiday season Altja is a quiet place. The perfect place to relax, as you see in the photo. This snoring pile of fur is a watchdog on duty...
