Alpaca Treks are the perfect way to meet our alpacas. We offer a 90-minute experience which you get to enjoy with your own carefully selected alpaca who will accompany you on your trek. The trek takes place on a beautiful private farm track so there's no need to worry about encountering other members of the public or dogs, and also provides a beautiful backdrop for those all important photos.
This is perfect for those who want a more hands on activity spending time and building a bond with just one alpaca, and are 16 or over.
If you don't fancy or can't walk for 90 minutes (the length of our treks), have already been on a trek and fancy something different, are perhaps a bit more nervous around animals and want a less hands on activity, or those with people 15 or under who wish to attend, then we reccomend our ‘alpaca experiences’ (please go back to our website and follow the appropriate link).
Before booking onto one of our treks, please take the time to read our guidelines below to make sure our alpaca treks are suitable for you.
A. Strictly no under 16s can take part or accompany us on this walk due to insurance reasons.
B. Whilst we have extensively trained our animals and exposed them to all sorts of different things, we do ask that all trekkers believe they are capable of keeping ahold of that lead rope if they do have a little jump about.
C. The total experience is 90 minutes long, once we start the walking aspect there are no short cuts back to the carpark so we ask that all trekkers believe they are capable of walking for this length of time.
D. Suitable footwear is compulsory as we walk across grass. During summer we reccomend trainers or walking boots, and during winter walking boots or wellies are best.
Alpacas have softer feet then horses but we insist that toes are covered all year round to be on the safe side. In the event of rain we do not allow umbrellas on the trek so please bring waterproofs instead.
E. Due to the nature of the ground, walking aids and wheelchairs are not permitted.
F. We recommend the use of insect repellent due to the nature of being with animals in open countryside.
G. No dogs, including guide and assistance dogs.
H. We run our treks in all weather, except thunderstorms or when there are dangerous road conditions locally. Due to the British weather being rather temperamental we cannot cancel treks every time it rains. If we believe the weather to be too bad we will get in touch, so please keep an ear out.
I. All trekkers must only arrive on site 5-10 minutes maximum before the start of the trek, you will then be collected from your car by a guide when we are ready for the session to begin. If you are going to be late please get in touch as soon as possible.
!!!! J. We do not offer refunds, in the event of a cancelation we will transfer your ticket to a gift voucher which will be valid for 18 months. We require at least 72 hours notice if you need to cancel, any cancellations after this time will not be eligible for a gift voucher and the booking will be lost with no voucher, transfer or refund due. We often struggle to fill slots at such short notice and as such lose business. !!!!
K. If you or anyone in your household is showing coronavirus symptoms you must get in touch to rearrange.
L. All of our walks at this time are private, with the idea behind this being you only attend these walks with your household or those within your support bubble.
M. Due to the current coronavirus situation there are NO TOILET FACILITIES. We have hand-wash stations plus hand sanitiser available at multiple points. We will also provide gloves but we also suggest wearing a mask (we do not provide masks).
