Kayak tour in Tallinn
Pick a day and have a great kayaking time with us!
A harbour tour with a sea castle! Suitable for beginners as well as for experienced kayakers.
3-4 hour kayaking tour in Tallinn will offer a waterbird’s-eye view of Estonia’s capital and its „medievally modern” skyline, plus a slice of history, from its days as a major trading port in the Russian Empire to its prominence in the Danish era, and its more recent Soviet occupation.
As we paddle past 8 ports, with a collection of military vessels, we’ll get a glimpse of Peter the Great’s marine castle and Patarie – the seldom visited but infamous NKVD prison.
A welcome next stop will be Paljassaare Peninsula, with a walk on sandy Pikakari beach, Tallinn’s closest bird watching area. From there, we’ll paddle back to the city – enjoying the sweep of graceful architecture – towers, spires, and the onion dome of the Russian Orthodox cathedral – that still punctuates the rapidly changing skyline.
