Estonia

Estonia is Northern Europe’s road less traveled, which makes it a great destination for well-traveled incentive and meeting groups seeking something new and different. Bordering the Baltic Sea, Estonia encompasses more than 2,200 islands and vast, dark forests around cool shimmering lakes, ancient castles, churches, and hilltop fortresses. Tallinn, its 13th-century Gothic capital, is the best preserved city in Northern Europe.

Key Locations

  • Tallinn
  • Parnu
Its Old Town, museums and medieval houses mingle with Soviet architecture, quaint cafes, and the modern attractions lining its cobbled streets. Estonia’s sparsely populated countryside is dappled with captivating old-world towns yet it offers surprising urbanity; open-air cafes reside beneath crumbling castles even as the dark forest beyond beckons like a siren. An impressive display of nature lies with its two large national parks where bears, wolves, foxes, deer, rabbits, and even lynxes still roam.
Hikers seeking an adrenaline rush head for challenging trails on the Baltic Klint, a 745-mile ridge of steep limestone ridge connecting Sweden to Russia. Estonians are hearty, independent, and among the best English-speakers in Europe. Most are multilingual; five languages are commonly spoken—Russian, Finish, German, English, and Estonian (a language so melodic that J.R.R.Tolkien used many Estonian words to create
the “High Elvish” language he used throughout his Lord of the Rings trilogy). Speaking of its melodic mother tongue, Estonia is known as “the singing nation.” Their annual signature event, the Estonian Song and Dance Celebration, earned a place on UNESCO’s prestigious list of Intangible Cultural Heritage sites.
