Cycling in Saaremaa

8 Day Tour, from £925 per person

Cycling in the Baltics is a rewarding and easy experience, especially out of the major cities, where deep forests, quiet country lanes, telegraph poles with giant stork nests perched on top and fields scattered with small wooden houses await exploration. This itinerary begins with a few days relaxing in Tallinn before continuing southwest to the beautiful island of Saaremaa. Saaremma has preserved all that is best about old Estonia. With little traffic and flat roads Saaremaa provides the perfect rural setting for cycling.
