Estonia is the northernmost Baltic state and has borders with Russia and Latvia.

From May to July, temperatures range between 15 and 20 degrees Celsius. The remainder of the year it is significantly colder. Estonia is a sparsely populated country with vast historical landscapes and is a wonderful destination for hikers and cyclists. In the north, the long coastline is characterised by spectacular cliffs, in the west by sandy beaches. One of the natural highlights of Estonia is Lake Peipus. Estonia’s capital, Tallinn, dates back to medieval times and still is mostly surrounded by an ancient city wall.
