Skip the artificial ice rinks this winter and opt for the real deal. Frozen bays, lakes and ponds across Estonia make for fantastic ice fields to skate on. What better way to explore Estonia during this beautiful time of the year?
It might take a bit longer for the sea to freeze over, but if that's the case then you can easily replace that walk on the beach with skating on the frozen bay. One of the best places to do that is in the Bay of Pärnu where you'll feel transported. Going more north, a skating trip in Haapsalu is a great way to explore the quaint historical town adored by Tchaikovsky, and you might even get a glimpse of Europe's longest ice road while there.
