Onion Route tour - a day trip departing from Tartu

View on map

If you have reached Tartu, but would like a day in the country exploring a mystical region, then we would like to invite you to Onion Route tour!

The day trip, that can last up to 8 hours, includes visits to museums that introduce the three cultures along the Onion Route (Museum of Juhan Liiv, Kolkja Museum of Old Believers), as well as to Alatskivi castle; we will also walk in the village streets along the coast of Lake Peipus, and explore Kallaste sandstone outcrops and graveyard.

You can try your hand at local handicrafts, participate in a heritage culture hike or another activity.
Naturally, you can enjoy local food!
