Enjoy sauna, especially the smoke sauna.
There are seasonal specialities to do. At the moment mushroom picking (mushroom hunting, mushrooming) is a favorit activity of many.
We like sauna almost every weekend, its almost like traditsion. In the summer most of country people like to picking up strawberries, blackberries in forest.
Visit Southern Estonia and the islands. Most tourists visit Tallinn, then some also other bigger towns like Narva, Tartu and Pärnu, also thee islands Saaremaa and Hiiumaa.

Enjoy meditation and relax in beautiful magical power points (hiis – in local language)

Make sauna near cold spring water – or in winter chop hole in ice and enjoy the thermoregulation. Best of course is smoke sauna.
Use possibility to visit spectacular springs – like Sopa allikas:
