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 the Onion Route tour!
The day trip, which can last up to 8 hours, includes visits to museums that introduce the three cultures along the Onion Route (Museum of Juhan Liiv and Kolkja Museum of Old Believers), as well as a visit to Alatskivi castle. You can 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 do another activity.
And be sure to enjoy local food!
