Cross-country skiing is one of the best ways to appreciate the serenity of Estonian nature.

You'll find tracks for everyone, from beginners to skiing enthusiasts, so rent equipment, ski into the night under lit tracks, and meet wild rabbits, fox, or deer.

With so many places to choose from, you'll have difficulty deciding where to go cross-country skiing in Estonia.

Based in Tallinn? Then the ski tracks in Nõmme, Pirita, and Saku are just a few minutes away.

Other options in North Estonia, and we recommend combining your ski trip with a visit to Lahemaa National Park, Rakvere, or Narva.

South Estonia has some of the best cross-country skiing in the country.

Athletes flock to Otepää, Estonia's winter capital, to train for competitions. Of course, there are plenty of options for amateur skiers as well.

West Estonia and the islands don't always have the best snow, compared to South Estonia.

There are a few options near Pärnu and Haapsalu. You may need to bring your own equipment, so check out the website if you're planning on renting.
