***Lahemaa Day Trip***
Discover Estonia’s biggest National Park and its acres of land, ruins of ancient settlements, waterfalls, lakes, manor houses, and primeval forests. Highlights are the Viru bog walk, the Käsmu Captains Village and lunch break in a traditional Estonian restaurant.
Departure: every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday, and cost is 30 Euros.

''Rope Swing Bungee Jump***
Estonians love 'kiiking' (swinging) and they put it to the extreme: you can rope swing from the historical Song Festival Stage, the place where the Singing revolution started. For those who like some adrenaline!
Available: Saturday and Sunday upon request
Price: €25

***Free Old Town Walking Tour***
Get to know Tallinn with our own local guide. Not just boring plain tour, but also funny facts that only insiders know about. Listen to the stories yourself and find out why our little town is so special!
