Western Estonia & the Islands

Western Estonia & the Islands Overview

The long days of mid summer are ideal for walks on forest paths, meadows and sand dunes of the Baltic coast to discover a variety of natural habitats and many species of wildflowers and birds. Accompanied by a naturalist guide, we visit town and country including the cities of Tallinn, Parnu and Haapsalu and the islands of Hiiumaa and Saaremaa.

The country emerged from centuries of foreign domination in 1991 with its national identity intact or as an Estonian historian put it in an opening to his book, ‘Estonia exists’. One of the last pagan countries to convert to Christianity, Estonia was literally on the warpath of a variety of Imperial and Regal powers from Russia to Sweden and the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, once the largest state in Europe.
