Winter Fun in Tallinn

Winter Fun in Tallinn

You don’t have to go very far to keep active this season.

 

Providing we actually get some snow this year, (or even if we don’t), there is plenty to keep you busy outside this winter. Did you know that there are beautiful forests and serene landscapes, all within a quick bus or train ride from Tallinn? Or, that you can skate right in the centre of the Old Town? Whether you like skiing, skating, tobogganing, snow tubing, or simply hiking, you won’t find a dull moment here.
