Northern Orchids Excursion


The family of orchids (Orchidaceae) is one of the richest in the world with 20,000–35,000 different species of these wonderful plants. There are more than 100 species growing in Europe and 37 species are native to Estonia. Our islands are full of them in spring and summer. To find Lady’s Slipper (Cypripedium calceolus) in the woods is an unforgettable experience. You’ll find different species depending on the season.
