Over 10 per cent of the Country is protected in an effort to preserve its flora and fauna and so many areas remain wild and unspoilt.
This autumn tour allows us to witness one of the planet's great spectacles – that is the visible migration of literally hundreds of thousands of birds as they move from their northern arctic breeding areas to their winter quarters, via strategic land masses in Estonia.
Our itinerary explores the western coastal headlands, where these large numbers of migrants pass.
It will not only be the visible migration that we hope to see as we shall look for some of the other exciting species to be found here at this time of year which may include White-tailed Eagle, Hazel Grouse, Grey-headed, Black and Whitebacked Woodpeckers, Tengmalm's and Eurasian Pygmy Owls, Great Grey Shrike, Bohemian Waxwing and possibly Yellow-browed Warbler.
There is also the possibility we may see an influx of species such as Spotted Nutcracker or Common Crossbill. Of course there will be mammals too, which may include Elk, Raccoon Dog, Wild Boar and Red and Roe Deer.
A tour not to be missed!
