Our Team: 


Rein Kuresoo

Guide and Trainer

Languages: English, German, French, Russian, Finnish, Swedish, Spanish, Estonian






Rein Kuresoo belongs to the narrow circle of leading naturalists in Estonia. He has working experience both with ornithologists and botanists, but probably the most successful period of his life was connected with establishing and leading a conservation organization, the Estonian Fund for Nature (or ELF, Eesti Looduse Fond). Two national parks and several large protected areas were established in 1991-95 in Estonia in 1991-95, proposed by ELF under his chairmanship.

Rein has led bird, plant and general nature trips since 1989 and has written and illustrated lots of books about nature and gardening. He has also authored several textbooks for schools and teachers.

Rein has the ears of an owl, an amazing ability to filter out the spectrum of most subtle birdsong from the bird choir and a bird’s sense of orientation in the middle of nowhere.

Responsibilities in NaTourEst:

  • Product development and marketing
  • Tour leading and guiding
  • Training
