Muhu [1] is the third largest island in Estonia although the size of the island is fairly small - 198 square kilometres.

It's located between Saaremaa Island and the mainland.

Contents

Understand

Over the centuries Muhu has developed at its own pace and its traditions are well known throughout Estonia. The famous famous Muhu patterns are a refined expression of folk-art.

Get in

By bus

Muhu is well connected by a network of buses from most other cities in the region and from Tallinn. Bus schedules can be found at Bussireisid.

By ferry

Muhu Island is connected by a frequent ferry service from Virtsu on the mainland to Kuivastu on Muhu. The ferries take cars and make the crossing in 25 minutes. Reservations are highly recommended specially during weekends. The ferries are operated by Saaremaa Laevakompanii.

By ice road

During winter time an ice road connects the mainland to Muhu.

An ice road differs by letting people drive at quite a high speed with safety belts open. The speed is reduced only while approaching the cracks that one have to cross over the boards fixed on the cracks. It takes approximately 20 minutes to cover the distance in case of favourable conditions. You can even pass the ferries that "drive" on the next line.
