How to Get to Estonia

There are direct flights to Tallinn, Estonia's capital, from Luton with Ryanair and London Gatwick with easyJet, as well as numerous indirect services from a host of other domestic airports with airlines such as Lufthansa, KLM and Estonian Air. You can also fly indirectly to the city of Tartu with Finnair. Once you touch down at either airport, you'll find plenty of taxis readily available to take you to your Estonia hotel. While there is a rail network in the country, it's not that extensive, so you're better off using buses if you plan to travel around. If you're simply after a city break, you can get around on foot in many locations or by using taxis which tend to be pretty cheap.
