Adventures out in the country
The best way to take your mind off the things taking place in a conference hall is to go hiking in Pärnumaa and discover the unique natural environment. Many Pärnumaa parks belong to Natura 2000– the European nature and bird reserve network.
Beaver Safari with Canoes
The beaver is an animal little known to the general public and rarely seen in the wild. Now you have an opportunity to see beavers with your own eyes! Come and meet beavers on a canoe trip through the wild nature of Pärnumaa.
Bog Shoeing Experience
Bog shoes are ancient hunting equipment, but they also help today’s tourists to travel through bogs, snow fields or on thin river ice – to walk where you can’t reach on foot. It really is a unique experience!
The sauna has always played an important role in Estonian culture: it is a place to gather, relax and chat about everything. The sauna heals both the body and the spirit. It is particularly nice to visit a sauna after an eventful hiking day.
Culture and creativity
Culture and art are everywhere in Pärnu – in the city architecture, in galleries and concert halls. But this is not all – Pärnu is the city where you may create something yourself and feel like an artist.
Walking Through Walls – in Animation Film!
Estonian animation film wizards will make you walk through walls, run on the ceiling or become 4-meters tall. A film plot related to your conference’s topic will be written for you and the film itself will be made with the help of special equipment – thus you will be able to save memories of those unbelievable moments in Pärnu.
When you see an elderly lady in national clothes passing you by on a motorcycle you will come to realize why this island together with its people, its peculiar language and its culture is on the UNESCO list of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
Craftsmen and Artisan Workshops
In human hands a formless substance is shaped into a beautiful piece of art – this is something that everyone must experience! In Pärnu artisan workshops you may buy original works of art or make them yourself and take them home as souvenirs!
There is nothing more simple and natural than to enjoy water in a resort city located between a beautiful seashore and river. You yourself decide whether you prefer to relax in a spa or fight wind and waves in the open nature. The best surfing beaches in Scandinavia are also located here!
Sport with Water and Wind
In Pärnu you can enjoy water and wind in various ways – sailing, yachting or motor boating, water skiing or surfing. Those who enjoy a real challenge may go kayaking in Pärnu bay.
Pärnu is enjoyable in any weather! All year round you may relax in Pärnu spas where golden or chocolate massage, water and sauna therapy provide energy to both the body and the spirit. The more courageous may even try the -100˚C icy embrace of the cold chamber.
Activities for groups
Team games can create new leaders and develop team spirit. There is plenty to do in Pärnu – both indoors and outdoors: you will be able to test your team’s inventiveness, performance and skills.
Mini Tennis Tournaments
A team tennis tournament is not only an exciting game – it is a perfect chance to test yourself in a new environment! Your team will have tennis courts, rackets and balls – everything necessary for a game of tennis.
Solve a Murder Mystery
