If you’re planning a trip to Europe, but want to add a not-so-touristy destination with different yet exciting activities, Estonia is your best option. Some travelers, such as citizens of Paraguay, can enter Estonia quickly by being part of the Schengen visa-free program, but how can one visit if they don’t know what to find.
This hidden destination homes some of the biggest National Parks in the continent where you can find a great diversity of flora and fauna while you’re out trying to snap a picture of the animals you encounter. You can also go for a walk around an abandoned submarine base, go bog-walking at the Soomaa National Park, or think about staying a night in a bear hide.
Estonia boasts classic touristic points to enjoy local history, medieval architecture, and traditional cuisine but also has these masked and entertaining activities to surprise its visitors.
And yet, convenient entry to the Schengen countries will change for all travelers who are part of the visa-exempt program. The new requirement is an Estonia ETIAS for citizens of Paraguay before they depart towards the Schengen destinations. The ETIAS has the purpose of analyzing the travelers’ documents prior to their arrival and reviewing that they’re not a threat to the countries. It can be seen as a basic version of a visa, only to improve the border systems.
