Hiking is easy and joyful! We like hiking in Estonia and organize hikes in beautiful landscapes in different regions Estonia. We carry out private guided tours, charter trips and welcome you to open group hikes. We also assist designing a program for self-guided hiking and support to conduct it.

Hikes take us to different types of forest, bogs and to other interesting places. The average length of a guided one-day hike is 5-8 kilometers and is suitable also for families and children. Most often, our hikes are in around Tallinn in Harjumaa as well as in Lääne-Virumaa and Viljandimaa. Privately guided and self-guided hikes can be organised and supported in all regions of Estonia.

In charter trips we offer also multi-day experience of beautiful nature walks with accommodation in cosy nature friendly hotels and guest houses.

Duration of a guided hike is 3 hours in average (plus transport to and from the hiking trail, if necessary). During the hike we will see beautiful views, talk about nature and environmental sustainability as well as introduce the history of the area and the heritage culture. We adjust the pace of hiking with the preferences of the group in order to enable taking photos. Tours are in Estonian and English.

We combine our hikes with forest cognition and offer experience to see and photograph beautiful places together with understanding the past and present of the area.

Hiking in Estonia - Seasonal Diversities

Depending on the time of the year, we have different hiking trails and topic. In Spring we pay attention to rebirth of the nature and visit waterfalls and forests. Summer is the most popular hiking session. Estonia offers large variety of possibilities combining forest, bog, lakeside and cultural heritage hikes. There are a number of National parks, nature reserves and hiking trails to visit and explore! Autumn is nice time for colorful hikes on hills and peaceful walks in bogs. Winter brings mystery with hiking with lanterns and lamps.


Privately guided tours and practical organisation of hiking

Charter trips take us to beautiful forests in Northern Estonia around Tallinn and in Lahemaa National Park. There are also some amazing peaceful bog trails in Central Estonia within one hour travel distance from Tallinn. In Southern Estonia we  introduce beautiful landscapes and permanent forest trails near Pärnu, Viljandi and Otepää.

We can also organize trips to the area of your choice, with the desired focus, length and duration. We can customize the theme of the trip and additional activities based on the specific order. For example, we can combine hiking in natural landscape with anthropogenic landscape and cultural heritage aspects or forest bathing.
