Let the winter fun begin!

Let the winter fun begin!

The trick to surviving the Estonian winter is to stay active. This is what was told to me when I first moved to Tallinn three years ago. So what did I do? I went out, bought myself a pair of cross-country skis and hit the trails. Unfortunately, last winter had so little snow that the annual Tartu Marathon had to be cancelled. I also heard from a friend who had taken part in another ski marathon, that it had become so mild during the race that the snow was melting under their feet. To complete the race, they had to remove their skis and start running!

Everyone has their fingers crossed for a beautiful white winter season, well almost everyone. There are those who head to warmer climates, but if you are reading this, it must mean you are a snow lover as well.

January is a quiet month in Tallinn, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. If you arrive near the beginning of the month, you can still catch the Christmas market in Town Hall Square. There are also plenty of winter activities to take part in, including skating and cross country skiing, all within Tallinn. Feel like staying indoors? Relax at a spa, or enjoy some of the fine cuisine Tallinn has to offer. All this and more you will find in these pages.

Happy travels!
