Day 4 - Parnu

Soomaa Private Day Trip

The perfect way to explore the Estonian nature and wilderness, with our wonderful local guides on a day trip to Soomaa National Park. Meet the locals, learn about nature and simply enjoy being in some of the most stunning, tranquil, unspoilt nature in Europe. You can meet your guide at Soomaa, or be picked up from your accommodation if you need a transfer.

Day 5 - Parnu to Saaremaa

Parnu To Saaremaa (With Sightseeing On Muhu) Private Transfer

Our driver-guide will pick you up from your hotel and drive you (via the ferry) to Saaremaa Island. On the way, you will be shown some of the highlights of Muhu Island including Muhu ethnographic museum and enjoy lunch at a local restaurant (food and drink not included). Saaremaa is the largest of the Estonian islands, but it is still a small, charming rural retreat well worth the journey to simply feel like you have escaped modern life and all its trappings. Well almost all, as this is Estonia even remote islands are hi-tech. During Soviet times travel on Saaremaa was restricted for 'mainland' Estonians (nevermind Western travellers) due to the radar system and rocket base stationed there - resulting in very little development on the island. Today Saaremaa has retained its rural charm, and visitors can glimpse an image of 'old' Estonia, treasured by locals and foreigners alike.

Day 6 - Saaremaa

Highlights Of Saaremaa Private Tour

Our driver-guide will pick you up from your hotel and you will explore the island of Saaremaa, it is an idyllic island full of natural and cultural sights including Kaali Meteorite Craters, Angla Windmills, Karja Medieval Church of St. Catherine and Panga Cliff. Return to your hotel for relaxation in the spa, evening drinks before a delicious local, seasonal dinner, or a stroll around Kuressaare town.

Day 7 - Saaremaa to Tallinn

Saaremaa To Tallinn (Via Eco Farms) Private Transfer

Our driver-guide will pick you up and drive you to Tallinn (including the short ferry ride). On the way you will visit some Estonian eco-farms to get a glimpse into rural Estonian life and local farming. In the afternoon, check-in to your hotel in the medieval city of Tallinn. Fairytale towers, colourful Hanseatic houses, glorious views across the Bay of Tallinn, meandering cobbled streets lined with local arts and craft market stalls, cosy cafes in quaint little squares perfect for a mid-morning coffee all make for a relaxing and cultural break. Whilst Tallinn can be enjoyed by simply wandering about and soaking up the enchanting atmosphere there is also plenty to see and do for those that like a full itinerary. There are many museums and churches to visit around old town, then further afield to Kadriorg Palace and KUMU art gallery, or Lahemaa National Park. There are some excellent restaurants (Michelin) in Tallinn, many of which get booked up months in advance so please let us know if you would like us to make a reservation for you.

Riga to Tallinn (via Saaremaa Island) Bespoke Tour

This was another excellent hotel in a delightful town (Kuressaare on Saaremaa). SAAREMAA TO TALLINN The journey from Saaremaa to Tallinn took us first to Vaiste Bay. If Ivo was initially hesitant about going to Vaiste Bay, his hesitancy was soon dispelled by the beauty of the place and his fortuitous meeting a friend when we stopped at a local house to see if anybody knew about the submarine that had been wrecked there in 1917. The house turned out to be that of the father of Ivo’s friend and he was able to give us valuable information. The subsequent visit to Rohkula was equally interesting. Throughout, Ivo again drove with care and safety.
