Green travel information


Estonia is not the most accessible country for those who would like to come from central or western Europe by train or other more sustainable modes of travel but it is possible and we already know some people are planning to take the time and explore the region in the "slow travel" way. Here are some guidelines for arranging your trip and possible routes. 

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact Matt Tips, IROICA Sustainability Officer,
