Frozen Jägala Waterfall and Picnic Tour
- Visit the highest natural waterfall of Estonia in winter time.
- Admire the gleaming ice wall and sparkling icicles.
- Explore a unique limestone cliff with fossils.
- Enjoy a cosy winter picnic with traditional Estonian snacks, local schnapps and hot tea.
- Have a great chat with your local tour guide.
The lovely Jägala waterfall is only 30 minutes away from Tallinn. Visiting the spectacular waterfall in winter time is a truly amazing experience. Often in winter times the temperatures drop to freezing and the waterfall turns into a gleaming ice wall. During this time the biggest natural waterfall of Estonia offers breath-taking views with its large icycles. Sometimes it’s even possible to walk behind the wall of ice. After enjoying this one of 8 most photographed places in Estonia, we have a cosy winter picnic with home-made pies. Tasting local Estonian schnapps and hot tea will keep you warm. The tour takes no more than two hours, so you have plenty of time to do some sightseeing in Tallinn for the rest of the day. Read also about custom made winter tours in Tallinn, Estonia.
PRICE INCLUDES: personal pick-up and drop-off at your accommodation in Tallinn, guide service, transport, picnic with traditional Estonian tastes, local schnapps and hot tea.
PICK UP PLACE AND TIME: hotel, as agreed.
Our guide was very gentle and nice!
The sight seeing was wonderful!
But you can’t walk behind the water falls as described in the information of the tour.
Keidi was wonderful. Very friendly and told us a lot about the history of Estonia. I loved her little stories.
Initially I was in doubt as the temperature were a bit low. But I was bit disappointed. It was just great. I couldn’t have enough of it. Also the picnic was lovely in great company. The boys loved it, playing around the waterfall and hiding in the forest. Thanks
We booked a visit to Jagala Waterfall in January 2023 through Prangli Travel. The weather had been fairly mild for Estonia for the few days prior to our visit so the waterfall was only partly frozen. However as the waterfall was flowing the different colour shades of water in the waterfall was mesmerising. Food was also provided which was very nice and plentiful. Nele our tour guide was very informative about the local area and the city of Tallinn. The waterfall is certainly worth a visit as a stand alone tour or as part of a multiple attraction day trip.
This was a lovely morning out of Tallinn to the waterfall. Also the picnic provided was lovely and it was nice to try some traditional Estonian food (the vodka was an added surprise).
Our guide was very friendly and told us lots about Tallinn.
This was a really fun day out and Keidi our guide was very funny and full of interesting stories about Estonia and its people.
We would like to thank you so much for this afternoon. Katie was a fabulous guide and driver. We shall recommend your tours to anyone we know heading here.
Thank you again and have a lovely Christmas.
What a fun time at the beautiful Jägala Waterfall!
I was on a solo tour with Nele, who perfectly organised the trip
and made my picnic in the snow with amazing view memorable.
Great adventure just outside the city!
Our tour guide was amazing! What a wonderful little
escape just outside the city. Thank you for that experience.
Excursion très sympa à seulement une demi heure de Tallinn. La cascade est vraiment spectaculaire en hiver, et pas trop fréquentée.
Un gros dépaysement, ce paysage enneigé féerique, les stalactites de la cascade, le silence avec seulement le bruit de l’eau…Magnifique.
Notre guide a amené un petit pique-nique et tout le nécessaire pour passer un moment très original au bord de la cascade. Cette excursion est à faire sans hésiter.
I just wanted to let you know that we had a great time at our Jägala Waterfall picnic tour with our guide today.
We enjoyed our conversations with him as much as we enjoyed seeing the frozen waterfall.
He was so knowledgeable and informative, and answered all of our questions too!
Thank you for the tour and we look forward to seeing more of this beautiful city.
This morning we touched one of the wonderful and powerful part of Estonian Nature
and tasted your delicious food.Thanks a lot!
Maybe we’ll come back to here on summer season. Surely we can share in Italy your ospitality
and that it’s possible to visit Estonia even now.
Have a successful New Year.
Frozen waterfall picnic
Our tour was excellent, there had been a lot of rain and snow melt so waterfall was more powerful and not fully frozen so we could not climb behind. But it was still really enjoyable. The drive is only around 25-30 minutes out of Tallinn so we got there quickly and easily. The picnic was interesting with a full story about the food and the history of Estonian cuisine. The schnapps helped warm you up in the snow as did the freshly brewed tea. The honey cake is delicious I would definitely order this again! Our guide was so lovely, friendly and passionate about nature and history. She kept us entertained through out. Really recommend this tour as something different to do.
Very great tours from Tallinn!
We have done two fantastic tours with Prangli Travel. 1st was Ice-fishing.
2nd was Jagala waterfall tour with Nele. The falls were partially frozen, it was very impressive. And what a nice idea to make a picnic on the banks of the river!
Nele was very friendly and gave us very informative comments on Tallinn and its area during our travel to the falls.
Many thanks to you all, and also to Annika, who was very responsive to our requests!
We just wanted to say thank you to your team for our tour. It was great and beyond our expectations. We had a great tour to the waterfall with plenty of nice information. The waterfall itself was so nice to see and the food we got was delicious.
The Jägala Frozen Waterfall is a must-visit for any tourist, a short drive out of the city with a knowledgeable guide. The sight of the frozen falling water is truly magical and an essential selfie spot. The location is a favourite haunt of fossil hunters who scour the limestone cliff beside the falls. As part of your tour you can enjoy a romantic picnic at the waterfall – try local traditional foods such as homemade mushroom pies, rhubarb cake, tea and schnapps.
I just wanted to drop you a line to thank you, Berit, Eve, Allan and the family at the sauna for their friendliness and professionalism on Saturday, it was a truly, truly memorable day and my team have definitely fallen in love with Estonia!
Frozen Jagala waterfall
I was extremely satisfied with Prangli travel. The guide is very curteous and helpful. She offered excellent advice and everything was taken care of down to the smallest detail. I have no hesitation in recommending Prangli Travel to my friends. Thank you!
Jagala Frozen Waterfall Tour
On a recent trip to Tallinn we booked the Frozen Waterfall tour. It was magical. Kristiina took great care of us during the whole trip and ensured that we saw the best of the area.
But what really made the trip was Kristiina herself. She set up a picnic afterwards and we sat around a table in the snow in the middle of woods and drank local schnapps, ate pickled cucumbers that her mother had pickled and cakes that Kristiina had personally chosen for us. Nothing was rushed. I truly felt like I was in the middle of a fairytale.
Nothing was too much trouble. I can highly recommend this tour.
Thank you Kristiina for a fabulous day!
Prangli Travel made our Tallinn trip into something special
We booked two tours with Prangli Travel: the Frozen Waterfall and Husky Sledding tour. Me and my friend were there with our almost three year old daughters absolutely delighted with both tours. Even before the start of our journey Kristiina answered all our questions by e-mail immediately and was very accommodating. Kristiina was very patient with our kids. The picnic was in the magical snowy forest. We had typical home-made Estonian dishes served, home-made cakes, tea and delicious Estonian liquor. We were thrilled. The same can be said about the Husky Sledding tour – many thanks again to Triin. We can recommend both tours. Thank you for everything!
Perfect tours in Tallin
We booked the frozen waterfall tour and the husky park tour with Prangli Travel. Booking and communication went without any problems. We got event picked up at our AirBnB. The girls were super sweet and very communicative in perfect English so we learned a lot. We also got surprised with a winter picnic which we didn’t expect to be this lovely! Thanks again for making our stay in Tallin this wonderful!
Frozen Waterfall and Picnic
Booked this two hour tour to attend with my mother in law and aunt and we were all very impressed.
Booking was easy and they were happy to respond to my queries to ensure my aunt would be ok as she walks with the aid of a walking stick. Service through email was very friendly and easy to book tour.
Able to decide the time to start we went with 11am, great time. Miss all the peak hour traffic out to the falls and then we pretty much had the waterfall to ourselves.
Parking is close by to the top and my aunt was easily able to navigate to get a view from the top. I opted to go down and view from the bottom. Each viewing spot was spectacular, due to ‘warmer’ weather it wasn’t completely frozen over but the partially frozen and flowing water creates a great effect.
Kristiina our guide was very friendly and informative. The picnic provided was fantastic including a table and chairs, schnapps and hot tea. Was lovely to enjoy the meal whilst admiring the falls.
A great morning out and highly recommend!
Fantastic birthday outing!
I can’t rate our morning out with Prangli Travel highly enough. 🙂
I was very lucky to be taken to Tallin for my birthday by my lovely boyfriend in search of snow, and wow, did we find it! We were collected from our hotel by the wonderful Kristiina and taken to a nearby frozen waterfall for a walk, followed by the most wonderful home-made picnic of traditional Estonian delicacies, plus schnapps and hot herbal tea.
The trip was just the right amount of time given the biting cold, and it has been the highlight of my year so far.
Kristiina’s local knowledge and pride for her beautiful country shone through; if you are in Tallinn then definitely book a tour with Prangli Travel, you will come away shiny with happiness.
We really enjoyed the waterfall and the freezing cold picnic, a novelty for sure!
Kristiina was a great guide and you both, Annika and Kristiina, provided 2 very amazing trips.
I look forward to visiting Estonia again.
We had the best time with Triin at the waterfall and picnic. She is a wonderful ambassador for your company and for Estonia. It was an absolutely delightful tour. Our kind thanks to whom ever made/arranged the delicious food for the picnic – it was such a pleasant surprise to discover and enjoy some home cooking.
