Frozen Jägala Waterfall and Picnic Tour

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 icicles. Sometimes it’s even possible to walk behind the wall of ice. After enjoying the picturesque sight we have a cosy winter picnic with home-made pies. Tasting local Estonian schnapps and hot herbal 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.

PRICE INCLUDES: personal pick-up and return from your hotel, guide service, transport, picnic with home-made pies, local schnapps and hot herbal tea.

PICK UP PLACE AND TIME: hotel, as agreed.

LANGUAGES: English.

Admire the natural beauty of the frozen Jägala waterfall

Jägala waterfall is the biggest natural waterfall in Estonia. It’s only 30 minute drive away from Tallinn city center. Therefore, it’s also one of the most popular attractions for the locals. The waterfall looks majestic in every season, however in winter time it offers a truly spectacular view. The gleaming ice wall and sparkling icicles will make you feel like you’re in a beautiful winter wonderland and the Snow Queen Elsa should be popping out from somewhere anytime. We will also see a mystical limestone cliff and search for millions of years old fossils.

Enjoy a cosy winter picnic

After taking tons of photos of the waterfall we will have a picnic with home-made pies. To keep warm we’ll taste local Estonian schnapps and drink hot herbal tea. The tea herbs are handpicked from Estonian natural fields and forests during summertime. The whole tour takes no more than two hours, so you have plenty of time to do some sightseeing in Tallinn after the tour for the rest of the day.

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.

Best time!
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.
