“Best way to explore Tartu is bike tour guided by Aljona”

An urban bicycle tour led by a landscape architect—a fresh and dynamic way to discover the city!

We'll explore the picturesque and thought-provoking sites of the city by cyclist point of view. The tour spans 2.5 hours, including leisurely pauses. Throughout the tour, we'll admire contemporary architecture and street art, immerse ourselves in street life, and uncover the urban spaces and nature of Tartu while delving into the past, present, and future of Tartu.

In total, we'll pedal approximately 8 to 10 kilometers. The tour maintains a moderate pace, adaptable to the group's abilities.


Please note: This tour requires the use of a bicycle. You can use your own or Tartu public bicycles, which are available for an additional fee.

To use a public bike, you are required to use your smartphone with mobile internet by creating an account in the Tartu Smart Bike app and purchasing an hour or day ticket (2/5 euros). 1 phone = 1 account = 1 ticket = 1 bike. You will receive the guidelines on your ticket via email as well.

The route

We will visit the most layered places in Tartu, where past, present, and future stories connect, where social life is rich and opinions about city development are controversial: Karlova, Supilinn, and Kesklinn. We will slightly pass the romantic Toomemäe, the brutal Annelinn, and the calm Ülejõe as well.
