Go East – Private 1 Day Trip to Russian Border

Being a private tour, it’s built around your interests. You’ll have the freedom to decide on every part of your journey or just relax and enjoy one of the attractions along the way.

We are going to explore north-eastern parts of Estonia during this day-trip. The main draws for north-eastern Estonia are the towns of Narva and Narva-Jõesuu on the border to Russia and industrial landscapes mixed with the newest national park in Estonia.

There are many interesting sites to stop along the route between Tallinn and Narva. Like the fifth largest town in Estonia - Rakvere, the newest member of Estonian National Park family - Alutaguse National Park, one of the more idyllic beach settings - Narva-Jõesuu beach. Narva itself is a melting pot of Estonian and Russian cultures and a great place to stop and relax. Narva these days presents examples of classical Soviet-era architecture with some exciting contemporary developments.

Stop At: Valaste Waterfall, Valaste Estonia

Valaste Waterfall, located on the Ontika limestone cliff, is more than 30 m high, making it the highest waterfall in Estonia.
The waterfall can be admired from the side as well, which offers a lovely view of the layers formed in 400,000 million years. The waterfall is most exciting in spring and during floods. Valaste is most spectacular in winter, when northern winds blow from the sea, creating ice sculptures on the trees on the limestone cliffs with water splashes.
