Nevalea Alpacas, the largest alpaca farm in New Zealand, is home to over 800 friendly alpacas. They offer visitors a range of different activities to choose from to give visitors an opportunity to get up close to the alpacas and hand feed them.

They operate alpaca treks through the summer months, where visitors can walk an alpaca around the farm and see hundreds of alpaca come to greet them in the hills, spectacular views surrounded by alpacas. They also offer a shorter alpaca walk throughout the year as another option.

They have new-born baby alpacas all year-round, and for a unique opportunity offer visitors the chance to have a cuddle with a baby alpaca. Great up close and personal experiences and chances for some amazing photos.

Visit the farm shop, where everything is made from the alpaca at Nevalea, from designer knitwear through to alpaca blankets and knitting yarn.
