Vapramägi Nature House and Elva landscape protection area

The nature house was intentionally built to be modest so it would fit in the surrounding nature. Here, both old and young visitors can visit an exposition, get to know nature through different games, or use learning tools for their research work. Information is also available on other hiking trails. The nature house is located on mountain Vapramägi, which is special for the varied topography and the meadows preserved and restored on the valley flat. The hiking trails are made more interesting by the sites related to numerous folk tales and legends.  Vapramägi and the Elva-Vitipalu area belong to the Elva landscape protection area.
