When to go

A trip to Estonia will vary immensely depending on the time of year.

Summer (June-late August) and the peak tourist season: countless festivals.

Winter (November-March): snowfall and short days.

Spring and autumn: both seasons are brief and often quite rainy, but spring is bright and cheerful.


Time difference

Estonia is on GMT+2 (October-February) and GMT+3 (March-September), so, when it is 12noon in London, it is 2pm in Tallinn.

Estonia switches to and from daylight saving time on the last Sunday of March and October.

Valid passport.
