Prangli Island Day Trip

Prangli Island is located just 30 km from Estonia’s capital. It is the only Northern Estonian Island, that has been continuously inhabited for more than 600 years. It has its own dialect of the Estonian language, very diverse nature, friendly locals and strong traditions in fishing. Mass tourism hasn’t touched the small island, so it still has wonderful and lonely sandy beaches. Prangli pine forests create enough fresh air to overwhelm the senses.

Things we do on the day trip:

  • have a comfortable ferry ride to the island;
  • drive around on an open Soviet-style truck or jeep;
  • visit a small wooden church;
  • explore a nature reserve;
  • visit a natural gas source, unique in the whole Estonia;
  • climb on top of a huge boulder;
  • listen to the stories and legends of the island;
  • enjoy the day on an island off the beaten path;
  • awake the taste buds with authentic and local island food.

PRICE INCLUDES: transfers to port and back to city, sightseeing tour, guide service, truck tax, church visit, set lunch, ferry tickets.

PICK UP PLACE AND TIME: hotel, as agreed.

LANGUAGES: English, Finnish.

1

Enjoy a comfortable transfer along Tallinn’s seaside to Leppneeme harbour for an introduction to Estonia’s coastal life-style and Prangli Island

Prangli Island is the only northern Estonian island that has been continuously inhabited for more than 600 years. It still has a very strong fishing tradition, its own dialect of the Estonian language, diverse nature and friendly locals. First, the transfer takes you to the Viimsi peninsula and Leppneeme harbour, from where we will take a ferry to the island (1 hour).
2

Discover Prangli Island on an open-top truck or jeep

Touring around in an open-top soviet-type truck or jeep might not be the most comfortable, but it’s surely the most fun way to discover all the important sites that this small island (6.44 km2) has to offer. The most common themes that come up during the guided tour are the historical background of the coastal-folk and the islanders, and the stories and legends explaining the various sites and their lifestyle. The sightseeing tour takes about 2.5 hours and covers a small open-air museum, church, nature reserve and a natural gas grill etc. Strange, but true, the weather is usually much better on the island than it is on the mainland.
3

Taste local food

Depending on the group size and the day we will organize the lunch for you in either a touristic farm or at the seaside restaurant. Both venues offer island specialities.
4

Admire islands natural beauty

After lunch you will have a few hours to explore the island on your own. Prangli is untouched by mass tourism, and has wonderful sandy beaches and pine forests that create enough fresh air to overwhelm the senses. In the villages the atmosphere is authentic which feels like being in an open-air museum.
!

Optional tips to enhance your experience:

  • take your time and stay on the island, we are happy to pre-book accommodation at a tourist farm or arrange beach camping;
  • You can rent a bike from the harbour while you have spare time after lunch and take a bike-ride to go swimming in the summer or mushroom picking in the autumn;
  • You can also take time out to taste local drinks at the small harbour café;
  • and for groups there are plenty of additional incentive and active programs available.

Day in wonderful Prangli!
It was my third time in Prangli, but this time with 30 guests all over the Europe. We had a great day with a very comprehensive tour on the island and excellent local summer lunch. Absolutely recommended.

Peaceful Prangli island
We had a daytrip to Prangli island with family. In spite of a bit of rain, we had a wonderful time! Our tour guide, Kristiina gave a thorough history of the island and the Estonian cultural traditions. The amazing thing is that on this island was built one of the smallest Estonian wooden church, the St. Laurentius. It was quite interesting to listen to the legend how a chapel used to stand on the same spot long time ago. Prangli is the most peaceful island I’ve ever been! It is an off-the beaten path to anyone who would like to get closer to nature!

Weekend on Prangli Island 2017
We wanted to thank you for your help, cooperation, and everything. Before I thought that Ruhnu island is the most silent and calm inhabited island in Eesti, but now we see that Prangli as minimum the same, and so close to Tallinn.

Daytrip to Prangli 2016
Prangli island is quite small (around 130 inhabitants living in 3 small villages), but it makes the island charming. It’s a great place to spend one or two days: hiking around the island and along beaches, swim in the Baltic Sea (water is maybe colder than in Tallinn, Haapsalu or Parnu, but is much cleaner!), rest in almost deserted beaches (sandy or covered with stones and boulders).

Daytrip 2016
We went with my husband to Prangli Island by using Pangli Travel.
It was good organised day. There was enough to do all the day.
Excursion was by truck around the island. Seating was in a boxcar. It was very fan.
Lunch was small and quick.
After excursion there was theatrical show of period when local people sell vodka to Finns.
It is good to know there is only one small grocery there. No more eating places and in the restaurant you cannot get much more food. Just that what included daytour. My husband don’t eat onion. He did not get any food all the day, just snacks, because offered food included onion and they do not offered anything else in the restaurant.
Yes, you can buy beer or cider, icecream etc.
Just taken something with you if you want some more to eat.
Anyway, we liked that day and the Prangli island and we’d like to go back and rest there some days.

Prangli Island Daytrip 2015
A sea trip of about an hour gets you to a place that time seems to have by passed. The island is out of this world. Peaceful and quiet, but small enough to do in a day. To camp over night would take the visitor to another place…..and the history and museum all help to make the trip worth while.

A beautiful island 2015
An hour ferry ride not to far from Tallinn takes you to a small natural world of forrests, a church, local school, museum, community centre, souvenir shop, historical cemetery – what an island offers and needs, ah and a gas tube (!) and many other little unexpected sights. One wishes to just stay longer than only for a day. Carmen my guide really knows the island and its spirit and intersting history.
Thank you very much! TÄNAN!!!
