Statistics: Hotel guest numbers in Estonia down slightly this January

According to data provided by Statistics Estonia, this January, accommodation establishments in Estonia served nearly 194,000 tourists. This was 1 percent fewer than in January 2023. The number of domestic tourists decreased, while the number of foreign tourists increased.

Helga Laurmaa, leading analyst at Statistics Estonia, said that more than 83,000 foreign and nearly 111,000 domestic tourists were accommodated in Estonia in January.

“Compared with January 2023, there were 1 percent more foreign tourists, which is still 35 percent fewer than in January 2020, just before the crisis. The number of foreign tourists in accommodation establishments was similar to the number of tourist arrivals in January 2011. The number of domestic tourists was 3 percent below last January’s all-time record,” Laurmaa added.

The highest numbers of foreign visitors in Estonia this January arrived from Finland (over 24,000) and Latvia (almost 16,000).

There were 17 percent fewer Finnish tourists this January than during the same month last year, while the number of Latvian tourists was up by 14 percent.
