A representative assembly of springs, related water bodies, forest and bog habitats lay north of Lake Prästvike. Allika hiking trail was reconstructed for nature lovers to get acquainted with this part of the unconventional nature of Vormsi.
As the name states, the trail leads to three different springs, the best-known of which is Suurallikas. A new section that takes you to Lubjakünka or Raviallikas spring was added to the trail. This is a special spring because a small hill-like formation has formed and you cannot see the usual spring funnel due to the settling lime. This type of springs – petrifying springs – are very rare in Europe and in other parts of the world.
Altogether, there are around ten springs in the area of which some open up in Lake Prästvike. The hiking trail is two kilometres long and it is possible to walk on in any weather. Four information boards were placed on the trail and now there is a better view to lake Prästvike from the observation tower because the reed has been cut down. Bird-watching from the tower is especially great during springtime, because you can find lots of birds in the area of lake Prästvike.
