Enjoy the seaside breeze and cycle from Tallinn city center to Viimsi peninsula and Pringi village. Where you have a chance to get a glimpse how local people lived in coastal villages in the 19th and 20th centuries and hear interesting stories about spirits smugglers and see the ‘sprat-tin-view’. This ride will take you at times, just a couple of meters from the sea, twisting and winding beneath the tall pines alongside the much-cherished sandy beach of Pirita, this cycling path leads you through the idyllic yet diverse suburbs of the Viimsi peninsula.
It is not just a bike tour. In Viimsi Open Air Museum you will have a fish workshop. Estonia is a country of good food with flavors that are influenced by the four seasons and pure Estonian nature. You will learn about the various species of Baltic fishes and how to prepare them for cooking from a local Estonian fishing expert. In this casual and authentic setting, you will also enjoy a tasting of the fish dishes prepared. The expert will explain the techniques of fish cookery while you can put your hands on cooking and sample many varieties of smoking, grilling, and curing fish from the Baltic Sea. You can also enjoy a salted craft beer which has several legends about the salt in it. The Open-Air Museum, the embodiment of a 19th century fishing village, is just the perfect place to get off the saddle and explore a little. Or just take a breather and enjoy one of the all-time classics – the brilliant silhouette view of Tallinn over the bay.
Cycling back to town enjoy a relaxing bike ride while the endless open sea is to your right and the skyline of Tallinn straight ahead.
