Autumn break in Estonia

The heat of summer, the carefree long evenings, and the vitamin D caught from the sun will keep us going throughout the dark autumn nights ahead. Despite all of this, there is still time to relax and take a break. Although the weather gets colder and the days shorter, Estonia still makes for a wonderful autumn getaway destination. 


Allow nature to relieve your stress
