We start the day in the morning with something special for breakfast in the bus and we hit the road towards Rakvere, a small town 100km from Tallinn. In Rakvere, we will visit the medieval fortress. Together with the fortress guide we will have an opportunity to practice for knights battles, mix gunpowder, see & hear the cannon shot, visit torture chamber and the hell.  After all this, it is time to relax in the bus for a moment and see the city of Rakver by bus tour. Our next stop brings us to Käsmu – a small fishermen village with a very special museum – very well know Käsmu Maritime museum. A place that shows the life of this small village, life of sailors and boat construction tools and methods. Here, it is time to eat our lunch in open air and after we will continue to drive by Sagadi and Palmse manor houses.

There are two more things to see and visit in this area during our DayTrip – Oandu beaver trail and Viru bog in Lahemaa national park. These visits will bring us to wild nature and first, we are going to see, how beavers live and what they can cause with their lifestyle. A must-visit place for everyone in Estonia is Viru bog. It is popular among locals and also visitors of Estonia and this is where we head next. So let us check out, how does it look like during our trip… After the hike, it is time for hot home-garden herbal tea and Estonian snacks to enjoy before we arrive back home in the evening.
