ADVENTURES in Tallinn

Get your friends together and go for a walk in the trees, take a hot air balloon ride or rock climbing.

 

The number of activities in Tallinn continues to grow. For example, walk along the edge of the viewing platform of Tallinn TV Tower, take a ride in a hot air balloon or try your luck at escape games. If that’s not enough, a day at an adventure park or rock-climbing without safety gear are other options to keep you entertained. Here are five interesting activities if you want to try something new.

Hot Air Balloon Ride

Balloon Tallinn opened last year to offer visitors a view never seen before of the port area and Old Town. The balloon can take up to 30 people and goes 120 metres above ground. The balloon only goes up with the weather is good, so be sure to check their website before you go. You can also rent Segways nearby. Balloon Tallinn is located close to the A Terminal of the cruise ship port.

An Adventure Among the Trees

There are four adventure parks near Tallinn in Pirita, Nõmme, Viimsi, and at the zoo. Try your hand at different trails, and when we say trails, we mean hanging “trails” among the trees. That’s not all, the adventure parks also include ziplining, hanging bridges and more to get your adrenaline pumping.

A Walk on the Edge

The TV Tower is a landmark of Tallinn though few have experienced the walk along the edge of the viewing platform at 175 metres high! With safety harnesses, the walk along the tower’s edge takes about half an hour and gives a stunning view over the Gulf of Finland and surrounds.
