Alpaca farm – the largest in Estonia!

Pärnu maakond, Niidu küla

Alpacas are curious, albeit slightly shy animals that simply beam with positive energy and cheer you up with their large eyes and smiley faces! In the Kännu Alpaca Farm, you can see alpacas – Peruvian animals grown for wool because of their wonderfully soft coat. Alpacas like to spend their days eating grass on the pastures. When guests arrive, they gather by the fence and wait for treats.  In the farm, you can pet an alpaca and feed it treats. Beside alpacas, you can also see cute pygmy goats, miniature sheep, Angora rabbits, and chickens. Come and visit the alpacas with your whole family! You can buy souvenirs and products made of alpaca wool in our farm shop.

Pärnu beach

Pärnu maakond, Pärnu

The famous sandy Pärnu beach, which feels like a town within a town in the summer, is just a 15-minute walk from the city centre. Tens of thousands of sun-worshippers and swimmers visit the beach every day in the summer. The beach is particularly well suited for families with children, as the water is shallow and warms up quickly in the sun, while the adjacent park offers protection from the cool northern winds. The beach has fun attractions for kids, swings, surfing equipment rental, mini golf, and lots of ice cream and other refreshments. Romantics will love the beach promenade any time of the year.
