Estonia at a Glance: Best Time to Visit

Recommended time to visit: Estonia is a year round destination with four distinct seasons. The warmest months are during summer from June - August but if you'd like to avoid the crowds then the shoulder seasons of spring (March - May) and autumn (September - October) are quieter.

Less popular time to visit: The winter months from November - February see Estonia at its coldest, but this can be a magical time to visit.

Best time for skiing: During the winter months from November - February, much of Estonia will see snowfall, and the country's ski resorts will open for business.

Best time for beaches: Boasting 3,700km of Baltic coastline, Estonia has some wonderful beach resorts, such as Parnu. Summer from June - August is the best time to hit the beach, with warm, sunny days.

Best time for wildlife: Although not generally known as a wildlife destination, the months of February - April see thousands of resident and migrant birds descend on Estonia, making it a perfect destination for birdwatches at this time.
