A small island with an abundant food culture

While Hiiumaa might be cut off from the mainland, the local food speaks of a vibrant, connected culture. Mainland Estonians usually travel over to Hiiumaa in August for the famously delicious Hiiumaa Café Days – a community-driven food festival. In the summer of 2020, a 6-story year-round experience center Wind Tower will open its doors in Hiiumaa, paying homage to the three characteristic themes of this rural island – the nature, history, and local living cultural heritage.
