Järvamaa is known as an area of swamps and moors, springs as clear as crystal but also area of fertile soil, vast fields and great agricultural production. Our wealth lies in nature’s diversity and ancient cultural traditions. But not only! Local people value Järvamaa as an improved living environment, shaped by their work and caring attitude. That is the kind of Järvamaa known today as a travel destination.

Our wealth lies in nature’s diversity. The territories of Endla Nature Reserve, Kõrvemaa National Landscape Reserve, Pandivere National Water Reserve extend to Järvamaa. There is also Türi Drumlin Landscape Reserve, Piiumetsa Swamp reserve, Vulbi Rare Plants Reserve, the Pärnu River island in Türi, Rava and Päinurme Oak Groves and Purdi grove of yew-leaved Douglas firs.
Most of the parks under protection are originally old manor parks. There are also single nature objects under protection. There are 44 boulders and stones in Järvamaa, which are mentioned in “The Book of Wild Nature”.
If you are lucky, you might see some rear birds, such as spotted and golden eagles, black storks, let alone a great number of white storks. In Järvamaa you can encounter specimens of most of the wild animals, bears and wolves among them. There is trout and crayfish in the rivers. Plant life is also rich, you will be enchanted by the Estonian orchids.
