What to pack for Estonia

Experience Tick Thin Icon

A warm jacket

Even in Summer, the temperature in Estonia rarely passes 18 degrees Celsius. When you’re strolling the streets all day, a jacket is an item of clothing you won’t want to go without.

Experience Tick Thin Icon

A pair of sunglasses

Summer or winter, a pair of sunglasses is essential. If visiting in the colder months, the reflection of the sun on the white snow will give your eyes a surprising strain.

Experience Tick Thin Icon

Jeans

It’s never too hot in Estonia for jeans. They’re the ideal day to night clothing attire that will keep you warm on a crisp morning or cool night.

Experience Tick Thin Icon

A small digital camera

The picturesque lanes, neoclassical architecture and stunning landscapes mean you’ll be walking a lot to soak it all up. Bring along your own reusable water bottle and stay hydrated the eco-friendly way.

Experience Tick Thin Icon

A shawl or pashmina

When visiting religious sites, a pashmina or shawl means you can respectfully cover up without compromising on fashion. It will also act as another layer of warmth for an unexpected chill.

Other things to know before you go
