By Barbara Traveller January 6, 2017

We are going to have a 2-day-road trip by car from Tallinn. We are planning to visit Paldiski, Rummu ...
Is there any really good places/cities/activities to do?
Like "winter paradise"? Good sledding place? Husky ride?
Thank you in advance!

Keila-Joa looks usually very awesome, when it´s very cold outside. The water is frozen and makes beautiful sculptures.

Thank you!!! :)
Jägala waterfall is on the east from Tallinn, but that's even better during winter if frozen. Then it forms magical frozen caves.

Depending when you are doing the trip, but if it's been cold for a while then official ice roads will be opened on the North-West Estonia. So you can drive to the smaller islands on the frozen sea. That's pretty cool, but you need to check if the roads are open. Right now not yet, but maybe in couple of weeks.

Here should be info about it: https://www.mnt.ee/eng/node/3202

Hey, Barbara!
Unfortunately my suggestions are not on your way, but hiking with Siberian huskies and sledding can be done at Paasiku Dogs Manor (http://paasikumanor.weebly.com).
Not too far away from it, 30 minute car ride, is for example Viru bog (http://www.puhkaeestis.ee/et/viru-raba-opperada). Just look at the Instagram pictures taken there during wintertime 😍 https://www.instagram.com/explore/locations/237015085/viru-raba/

Wow, it really looks nice! Thank you!!!
It depends when you are coming, there are "ice skating on lake" and other trips in different places.

http://www.matkapesa.ee/ page is in Estonian, I think, but if you write them...

If you have 2 days, I recommend going to Lahemaa national park as well :) the forest should be amazing at the moment.

You might also check for a bog or trails in the forest. If we have snow it is already a winter wonderland. :) https://loodusegakoos.ee/where-to-go/search-options
