Tallinn: Coastal Cliffs and Rummu Submerged Quarry Day Tour

Tallinn: Coastal Cliffs and Rummu Submerged Quarry Day Tour

Begin your tour with a light hike along the forested coastline not far from Tallinn. Visit an abandoned naval fortress which is tucked away in the forest, where it is still possible to explore the dark underground tunnels and the massive concrete structures above the ground. From there your tour continues to the Keila Waterfall, located in a peaceful manor park with charming bridges and walking paths. Drive through the mostly Russian-speaking city of Paldiski, getting a feel of its industrial Soviet-era neighborhoods. Following that, visit the local Russian orthodox church to learn about the contrast between Estonian and local Russian cultures. A break for lunch at a local restaurant is then provided, during which you can order Estonian food for lunch. Continue the tour to the Pakri coastal cliffs where you can observe the red lighthouse looking over the vast Baltic Sea. Whilst there, it is optional to buy a ticket to the lighthouse to climb to the top, or walk all the way to the Pakri Waterfall. For the final stop on your tour, drive to the Rummu submerged quarry. Whilst there you can climb up the sandy hills for a view over the entire crystal clear lake and the submerged houses. As you return to Tallinn, you can reflect back on your day filled with nature, alternative off-the-beaten sights, and secret history.

Tallinn: Off-Road Estonian Forests and Coast Safari

You will be met by your guide and minibus at the exit gate from the custom port. Following a 30-minute guided ride on the minibus, you will meet the off-road club members and change into one of their cars. On the way to the meeting with your off-road driver and guide, you will receive a general introduction into Estonian history, as well as highlights of the day’s itinerary. In the off-road car, you will explore the area of Pakri and former Soviet military town of Paldiski.

You will soon stop for a short snack by the seaside and a glass of wine, after which the powerful cars will take you to the former tank training site (which is 15 miles away) to show you what your car is truly capable of. Following your roller-coaster-like drive through the sand pits, you will be taken to the port (or the old town).

We had the privilege of getting a private tour with the Guide (just the two of us and her). She explained very interesting facts about all the toursights. All in all it was a relaxed and fun day, having great conversation about any topic imaginable! Thank you for this great experience!

We had a really wonderful day discovering the beautiful places in Estonia. Our guide was fantastic and very, very friendly. Thank you so much for this tour! (I am soooo sorry, I forgot your name but we went with you on 3rd Oct. 2023...).We would really recommend this tour.

Very nice tour. We were the only ones so it was a private tour for us. The tour guide Nele was incredibly friendly and knew almost everything about the region and the places we visited. It was completely snow-covered and that made it extra magical.

I was guided to places that I would not be able to go to on my own. It's not cheap, but it's worth it. ,

i would 100% recommend. such a good time. really nice tour guide. best tour in estonia most likely
