Bike Touring the Baltics – Estonia
Immediately upon arrival, we could tell that Estonia would be a good country for cycling. In fact, all three of the Baltic States (by their current definition) possess many of the elements that make for superb cycle touring. We immediately noticed that there were more people doing what we were doing (however fewer were camping; most were staying in the inexpensive lodging that dots the countryside). Estonia was shockingly inexpensive – especially when you consider the quality of the cycling. While Estonia possesses fewer “big” tourist attractions (and almost all of them are located in the capital of Tallinn). Regardless you can have a great time visiting smaller, more rural attractions.
Outside of Estonia, our route took us mostly on quiet and flat rural roads which were easy to ride.
There are some mildly interesting attractions, such as a glass museum in Jarvakandi that we visited.
