Viti observation tower

Make a fire only in a place prepared and marked for it. The need for firewood in our campsites is very high during the summer, therefore firewood may be out. To avoid disappointment, please take firewood or barbecue coals with you when traveling by car. Do not leave a burning fire unattended! When using a charcoal grill, pour the coals on the fireplace, not under the forest. Extinguish the fire properly, when leaving.
The observation tower on one of the highest hills of the Vitipalu esker field in Elva Landscape Reserve offers a beautiful view of the varied landscape of the surrounding area (access on foot only)
