Ferry to Saaremaa: € 14,50 for a one way ticket for 2 people and 1 car. The Landcruiser was charged as a normal car here.

Highlights or not

Laheema NP: We just drove through the area and stayed 1 night in Vosu. So we cannot judge the area very well. You probably need to do some activities. Just driving through you mainly see forests which for us was quite boring.

Vosu: small not very special village but the bar is nice.

Tallinn: For us the most beautiful city of the 3 Baltic capitals. We really loved this place. There are so many small streets, squares and amazing buildings to discover. Best to get here with public transport as parking is quite expensive (€ 1,50 per 30 minutes).

KGB museum: located on the top floor of the Viru hotel (opposite the old town). You need to book a tour in advance to visit it. We did not go here. Must be good from what we heard.

Muhu & Saaremaa: Islands just of the coast of Estonia. We liked driving around the island and visit some small villages and enjoy the views.

Paldiski: Known for its steep white cliffs. Finding them was a hassle as they are not signposted. To us the cliffs were dissapointing as they were nothing special. The cliffs at Panga at Saaremaa island are nicer.

Kiipsaare lighthouse (on Saaremaa island): old tall lighthouse at the northern tip of the island (due to erosian it is now located in the sea). To get here you must drive an offroad track untill about 4 km from the lighthouse. There you can park your car and walk the last 4 km.

Angla Windmills (on Saaremaa island): Some traditional wooden windmills. You can pay a fee and visit the inside onaoyou can see them from the road (which is for free)

Koguva (on Muhu island): small but very beautiful countryside village at Muhu island. The houses made of stones, wood and with thatched roofs covered with mosses perfectly blend with the lush green surroundings.

Kuressaare (on Saaremaa island): Nice village with some beautiful old houses. One of the 3 major spa retreats at the East Sea coast. During sovjet times a popular holiday location for members of the communist party.

Panga Pank: Seaside area known for its cliffs. Not sure if it is allowed but this would be a good spot for wild camping especially in low season (you will probably have the place for yourself then).

Rummu underwater prison: visiting is at your own risk but the place should be very special (see info on atlasobscura). We however did not succeed in finding it. All roads that we found had a dead end or closed gates.

Restaurants & accomodation worth mentioning

O'Korts in Vosu: Nice bar to hang out. On the terrace you will have sun untill just before the sun sets.

Ku-Kuu restaurant in Kuressaare: Famous restaurant in the area. We had lunch here. The food was good although not the best we ever had. Special was the atmosphere though. We had a nice table in a corner with the tainted windows.
