As an initiation into Estonian life, Austin and his friends tried the traditional smoke sauna, part of UNESCO’s list of Intangible Cultural Heritage. They even completed the task with a brave plunge into a frozen lake!

The second day was mainly spent on wheels; the morning began with a wild ATV/quad safari through the snowy forest of Jõeküla before continuing at Rummu, an abandoned prison and quarry. Here, Austin and the team explored the ruins with off-road fat bikes.
