Tallinn-Kuressaare by car
You need to drive from Tallinn to Virtsu harbor (use map or GPS, about 135 km) to take a ferry – buy ticket for car and passengers before the trip here. Choose route Virtsu-Kuivastu! You can buy ticket from the harbor as well, but pre-booking will save you a lot of time (there might by queues in the summer).
Short ferry ride (30 min) will take you to Kuivastu harbor to the island of Muhu which is linked by a bridge to Saaremaa. Once on the island you follow the signposts for Kuressaare (75 km from Kuivastu to Kuressaare).
When arriving to the Parasummer camp site, pay attention to the signs about 1 km after Kuressaare. There should be „Mändjala Kämping“ and „Parasummer“ somewhere next to the road. To go straight to the dropzone drive to Kuressaare, there are airport signs before entering the town.
How to move between camp and dropzone if you don’t have a car?
We will organize car transportation each morning and evening between the camp and dropzone.
