Jõulumäe Päkapiku hiking trail runs in a pleasant pine forest, where a narrow forest trail winds up and down in search of dwarf locations and footprints.
The Dwarf’s hiking trail is marked with a red ribbon all year round. In addition, there are signs on the trees with the image of the head elf Kiikerpäkka. You have to move in the direction where the elf is looking with its swing. The length of the trail is 2 km. The hike can be started right next to the children’s playground, where all visitors to the center are greeted, not at all by the elf size, Kiikerpäkk.
Jõulumäe Dwarf Trail is open year-round for discovery on your own.
There was once a time (1994-2002) when we got to SEE and HEAR the elves living locally here in Jõulumäe (Jõulumäe is in english a Christmas Hill). Many elves with different occupations were busy in the dwarf land of Jõulumäe: Kiikerpäkk, Käbrik, Hingela, Jõura, Kudriin, Helina, Iluri, Trillalla, Virkjalg, Kelkur, Suuskur, Unilane, Kulbi-Kusti, Tohtermann, Tarkur, Kingitaja and others. Päkapiku Bank and Post Office had its own money – Päkk, with you could buy a ticket and try your luck at the lottery, taste a special soup, by the dwarf’ fan stuff and redeem the ticket for a Päkapiku’s fairy tale trip.
Now can everyone hike on the same track. Unlikely you can meet real dwarf’s, but next to each dwarf’s habitat, there is a fairy tale to read with the story.
In December 2017 – 2019, before the Christmas-time, the popular evening walks took place again, introducing the fairy tales of the Jõulumäe’s dwarf’s secret life. They took hikers to a small adventure in the dark forest. Also this year? You can find out on the news.
