Join us for a beautiful day down the Western coast of Estonia to the lovely city of Haapsalu. Explore with us the Estonian countryside that is home to towering pine forests, picturesque coastline, and mysterious castle ruins. Discover with us stories and places you would never stumble across on your own.

It’s hard to find an area of Estonia that is any more relaxed and easy-going than the Western coast. Fall in love with the local countryside by taking a moment to relax by the seaside and by admiring the lonely farm houses. Learn about the Coastal-Swedes in Noarootsi and about Estonia's medieval history at Padise monastery ruins.

Discover Haapsalu, probably the most romantic city in Estonia. We’ll visit the medieval castle ruins in the middle of the city, walk between unique wooden villas and down the picturesque seaside promenade. Before leaving behind the city we’ll visit the local train museum at a beautiful wooden train station. Haapsalu might be a small town but it has much to offer, don’t miss out on any of it.

In Haapsalu we also stop for a lunch at a local restaurant or cafe. Kindly let our guides know if you have any special dietary needs that we should take in account. Location of the lunch is subject to availability and the meal is not included in the price of the tour.

Rated No. 1 Tours in Tallinn by TripAdvisor

"Day at the coast"

Lovely to venture beyond Tallinn to see a little of the Estonian Countryside and the west coast. We stopped at Nova Beach and Spitham Point - very pleasant. Saw Haspsalu castle and the railway station, but was disappointed we had no free time for a wander around Haapsalu on our own - especially as weather was beautiful.

"Relax by the sea"

Marju was great explaining and answering our questions and looked after our needs as my wife has angina. There was just the two of us. This tour was recommended by another guide as it was very relaxing but took in lovely countryside and sea. Marju took us to a lovely cafe for lunch which was inexpensive but great choice and quality of food

"Interesting"

Guide was excellent and took us to many places. She was very helpful and knowledgable. Unfortunately I can't remember her name.

"A great itinerary, enhanced by a fine day with blue sky, and an intelligent and good guide"

Marju took us on a tour of Haapsalu and West Coast. The weather was beautiful with blue sky and a brisk wind (Wrap off warm against the wind!) First stop was the rail station with abandoned Soviet trains, which was a reminder of the control and grandiose of the past, as well as the Soviet regime. We saw some lovely landscape at the North West of Estonia, and a picture postcard town of Haapsalu. There were some interesting medieval forts and ruins with ghost stories (The White Lady!) too. Marju took us to a fabulous cafe in Haapsalu for lunch. Here we were served the dish of the day and the loveliest cheesecake by a patient and friendly lady manager. We liked this tour - it was enhanced by Marju's personal experience of the Soviet, and her passion and interest in the state of the country and the EU. We thank you for a great Estonia experience!

"Great tour!"

Despite the cold and rainy weather this was a really fun and interesting tour. Haapsalu is beautiful.

"The trip was very beautiful and complete."

We saw a lot of things that we can't see without your trip. We saw a part of Estonian land different from Tallinn. Our guide Marju was great and very professional, she told us a lot of things about history, people and tradition of Estonian country. We also had a very good lunch in a very beautiful small restaurant in Haapsalu. Congratulations for your organisation of the trip and for the best guide MARJU!!!! I'll suggest TRAVELLER.EE to all my friends that will come in Tallinn.
