Top springtime Insta destinations

The spring is finally here and what better way to explore some of the most scenic seasonal destinations than through a visual journey through #VisitEstonia's Instagram account. Since most of us have smartphones equipped with cameras, you too can capture and share your springtime moments with us.

Tuhu mire

Oidrema-Tuhu mire is one of the biggest in West Estonia. It is located only 10 km from the sea (making it a young mire) and it has a 900-metre long boardwalk, offering many surprises at a closer look.

The mire also has an observation tower to offer views from higher ground.

Walk in a forest in Saaremaa

Saaremaa is the biggest island in Estonia. Usually, around March, you can start feeling the change in the sea winds and in the coastal pine forests: the spring is near.

Keila Waterfall

As the third most powerful waterfall in Estonia, its gushing waters will definitely remind you that spring is arriving.

Winter swimming in Noblessner District

Tallinn's Noblessner District has undergone a total transformation from an ex-submarine factory to a vibrant community of cultural venues and restaurants. There is also a designated area for winter swimmers - what better way to welcome the new season than with a dip in spring-cool waters!

Altja fishing village

Altja is a typical Estonian seaside village, with all of its houses stretching along one street. Getting close to the sea when the seasonal tides are turning makes for a beautiful trip.

Soomaa National Park

Soomaa National Park is the only place in North Europe with a unique fifth season. The spring floods arrive every year, signalling the end of winter. You are welcome to explore the otherworldly landscape on your own or join one of the canoe trips to celebrate the arrival of spring.
