There are several accommodation establishments – from simple guesthouses to a bit fancier hotels – in different parts of Lahemaa, located either on the waterfront, deep in forests or near the national park itself. Several of them offer not only a roof over your head, but also catering, sauna and other amenities and entertainment.
House Kärka – cozy and private holiday home at northern top of Estonia
Ligedama Wabatalu – guest house where every room is equipped with a patio

OTHER THINGS TO DO
In addition to fishing, you can have a great time hiking at more than 20 study and hiking trails in the untouched woods or visiting posh historical manors and exhibitions in the surrounding area. The more adventurous travelers can also sign up for bear watching deep in the Estonian forests – the country has the highest brown bear population density in Europe. Taking the time to enjoy the wild nature of Lahemaa and to breathe its fresh air will calm the senses and relieve you from everyday worries.
During the annual salmon run from late October to early December, volunteers are welcome to watch salmon spawns, thus protecting the eggs from poachers. The spawn watch is a great opportunity to spend some time in the nature and to see up-close numerous salmons in their shallow water reeds.

WE GIVE BACK TO BALTIC SEA FISH POPULATIONS
The BSF fishing guides in actively support measures to improve natural production of coastal and migratory fish by earmarked funds derived from fishing tourism to local fish conservation measures. BSF stems from the EU-funded Retrout project that currently are improving the habitats and fishing production in 12 Baltic Sea rivers. Other improvement measures, such as construction of suitable wetlands for fish reproduction and river watch (guarding) activities are also conducted.
