Overview

Our short tour to Estonia is dedicated primarily to finding over wintering flocks of Steller's Eider, which often number between 500 and 1000 individuals. A number of Woodpeckers provide the supporting cast to this surprisingly attractive country. From Tallinn's historically captivating Old Town, numerous Baltic peninsulas and bays to the extensive swathes of pine, spruce and juniper forests.

2023 Tour price is an estimate and will change. Tour dates could be adjusted.

I had a wonderful time. Our Rockjumper guide, Holly Faithfull, was terrific. She made the cruise, which was already excellent, even better.

Our questions were always answered with clarity and accuracy. There were no surprises as a result... This trip was a wonderful and unique experience for me. I actually felt renewed and revitalized when it was over. Thanks to everyone for an experience of a lifetime!

Adam is an extremely hard working, energetic and enthusiastic person who is able to remain calm and collected under extreme pressure and is always willing to help and assist anyone in need. His ability to find elusive birds for clients is legendary and almost miraculous. He is not feint-hearted and never daunted by challenging circumstances.

This was a fantastic trip. David did an excellent job as our guide. He was thoughtful, attentive, hard-working and an expert in the field. There wasn't much that we didn't find. We very much enjoyed his company and hope he leads us again in the future.

Expert guiding by Keith and Glen Valentine, aided by fabulous local talent, ensured we saw the maximum number of endemics and other birds and mammals. Perhaps more importantly, these two brothers enjoyed their time together and provided a warm, friendly and caring environment in which we all had a good time with lots of laughs, and looked out for each other to ensure everyone got on the birds and did not falter on a tough hike or challenging car ride.
