WELCOME TO AKHAL-TEKE EST!
It is easy to come to visit us from any part of Europe. We are located about the same distance (250-300km) from Tallinn in Estonia and Riga in Latvia. There are good flights to Tallinn and Riga from many different cities of Europe with the duration only for couple of hours. From Riga you can take a bus or a small plane to Tartu or rent a car and drive to us. It is also possible to take a flight to Helsinki in Finland and then a fast boat to Tallinn. From Tallinn you can take a bus either via Tartu or directly to Võru (ca 20km from us) where we can meet you.
NB! It`s possible to come and stay at our farm for a longer period, to learn the every-day life with Akhal-Teke horses.
