Eastern Adventure: Rakvere

Day Trip • 9-10 hours • 59 EUR

A most intriguing look behind the former Iron Curtain awaits, with a hint of medieval grandeur and natural beauty.

Eastern Adventure is our most extensive tour, covering the most distance and taking in the most diverse range of scenery. We head to the Eastern-most county of Estonia, and you will see beautiful castles and manor houses, as well as Estonia’s industrial heartland. Very few tourists travel this far from Tallinn, which means that you will have a range of wonderful sights to yourself. You can stroll around Toolse castle, built on the sea to ward off pirates. We will stop for lunch at the magnificently restored Vihula Manor, where you will feel like real nobility as you dine. After exploring Purtse stronghold we leave the beautiful buildings behind for a short while and visit Kiviõli, a soviet industrial town. The grim apartment blocks are best viewed from the biggest artificial hill in the Baltics, oil-shale mining waste piled 120 metres high. Our final stop is Rakvere castle, where you can try your hand at archery or sample some Estonian wine. This tour is co-operated with our friends from EstAdventures.
