Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

What you will visit:

The area of Suurupi Lighthouse
The Suurupi front lighthouse, built in 1859, is distinguished by being the only wooden lighthouse still functioning in Estonia.

Pakri Lighthouse
The first lighthouse built on Pakri Peninsula, the location of this limestone structure, is believed to have been chosen by Peter the Great. The bright-red structure has been restored after damage in WWII, and guests can climb to the top for breathtaking views.

Lower Old Town
Inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List, Tallinn, Estonia's capital, is a jewel box city showcasing a rich history and special ambience. Its lower town, the larger part of medieval Tallinn, was built between the 13th and 19th centuries and is an enclosed neighborhood of colorful houses, half-hidden courtyards and churches. The town is dotted with ancient guard towers, its streets and shops are full of old-world charm, and Town Hall Square retains the ambience of when it was the hub of the Hanseatic League, trading goods from around the world in its central marketplace.

What you will see along the way:
Through the motorcoach window, take in views of Paldiski, a small coastal seaport town with a long history. The landscape along this stretch of coastline, although stark, is studded with such landmarks as Peter the Great's unfinished sea fortress, the original lighthouse and buildings that reflect its role as one of the most powerful Soviet naval bases in Estonia.

Photo Opportunity:
Keila Joa waterfall
From the jagged, limestone cliff top, focus your camera on views of the cobalt-blue Baltic Sea.

Special Notes:

There are approx 290 steps to the top of the Paldiski lighthouse. If the guests don't want to climb up, they can still walk around on the territory of the lighthouse and take some photos. Please note that there is no inside visit to the Suurupi lighthouse.
