About
Jagala Waterfall is a waterfall in the lower course of the Jagala River, approximately 4 km before the river flows into the Gulf of Finland. The waterfall is approx. 8 metres in height and more than 50 metres in width. It is the widest natural waterfall in Estonia.The waterfall is a peculiar sight to see in winter, when the water mass frozen in cold weather becomes a glistening ice wall with large icicles. A tunnel surrounded in both sides by ice may be formed in between the ice hanging down from the edge of the waterfall and the wall of waterfall.Interesting to know:- In terms of fishery the lower course of the Jagala River from the waterfall to the river mouth is one of the most valuable ones in Estonia – large trout and salmon resources can be found here.

A nice place to visit if you love nature

A picturesque waterfall, worth a visit on a way somewhere. We stopped there for 20 minutes on the way to Tartu, there were only a few people visiting. Beautiful surroundings to have a walk or a picnic.

Wonderful day at Jagala Waterfall. We went in the summer on a warm day. You can see people enjoying a picnic and enjoying the water. It’s easy to access the waterfall from the street. Just walk down a few stairs and you are there. There is also ample parking. Highly recommended if you are visiting Estonia.

Not very large waterfall, but nice. Good background for selfies. Also surroundings of waterfall Lake and Jagala River is attractive for nature lovers.

A waterfall

A nice but not spectacular waterfall. Maybe in spring after a lot of rain it will be more impressive. The third star is for the good path and stairs to the waterfall. There are also some benches with view of the waterfall.

This place is easily accessible from Tallinn. Either a 30-minute car ride or 40-minute bus ride.

We went here during winter and although it was already melting, some parts are still frozen and looked really beautiful. Be careful walking around though, it's a bit slippery.

Great break from the city

We caught a bus from Tallinn, missed our stop and ended up walking over 1.5 hours in snow but it was well worth it! Most of the waterfall was frozen over and we were able to walk behind the frozen falls.

Gorgeous!

Don't visit during dry season.

We got the bus from Tallinn to the waterfall. It cost €2 for a single journey and took 45mins. The bus stops on the main road and it's a 1km walk to the waterfall. There is a walking path that leads directly there and it took us around 20mins to walk there. In the car park there is a portable toilet.

There are a few wooden steps to walk down to get to the bottom.

We went during the summer following a number of months of unseasonably warm weather and no rain so it was not as impressive as it usually would be.

The buses are infrequent (less than one an hour) so check the timetable before setting out.

There is a little shop on the main road where can purchase snacks and drinks. There is not an extensive selection and mainly just crisps and ice creams but nice to sit on the benches outside in the shade whilst waiting for the bus. The owner also let us use their toilet.

I would not come out of my way to visit during dry season if passing then stop by. I would also recommend checking what the weather has been like before hand as if warm like today and the past few months it's not actually that impressive to see and your time can be better spent exploring elsewhere. There isn't anything else to do here other than visit the waterfall.

We had an early start and arrived at 8.40am. The next direct bus to Tallinn was not until 11.35am. There was a 10.07am which went in the right direction but we didn't realise this till later.

We visited the waterfall and spent some time walking around the local area due to our bus not coming till 11.35am but even then we still had an hour to wait until the bus.

Having seen the pictures when the waterfall is in full flow it looks very impressive and shame it wasn't like this on our trip.
