Again this year, we will all meet in Vihula, Estonia, for an exciting and intensive week of learning and growing.
Vihula Manor Country Club is located in northern Estonia, on the coast of Baltic Sea, just 90 km from capital city Tallinn, an hour scenic drive through picturesque countryside and ancient forests. The lovely manor complex is idyllically situated in North-Eastern corner of the beautiful Lahemaa National Park, with sandy beaches, enormous erratic boulders, mossy pine forests, majestic wetlands, ancient fishermen villages of Altja and Käsmu. One of the main Lahemaa attractions is undoubtedly the manors – the baroque Sagadi Manor, Estonia’s most well-known Palmsee Manor and picturesque Vihula Manor.
From Vihula Manor all major attractions are within easy reach: 3 km to secluded sandy beach of Baltic sea, 5 km to the historical Altja fishing village, offering a glimpse into the life of coastal people in the past and today, 6 km to Sagadi Manor, 14 km to Palmse Manor, 20 km to “Captains Village” of Käsmu with unique maritime museum, 25 km to regional capital Rakvere.
