Lakes, forests and beaches make up one of Europe’s smallest but prettiest countries.

Estonians have fiercely defended their culture through decades of Soviet influence, and now it’s celebrated everywhere you turn. Fabulous food, gorgeous medieval towns and a sense of joyful independence set Estonia apart.

How we're giving back

In Estonia, we stay in locally run accommodation including guesthouses, smaller-scale hotels and homestays in an effort to support the local economies. We also visit locally-run restaurants and markets where travellers will have opportunities to support local businesses and purchase handicrafts created by local artisans.
