Meet our Llama Trekking Squad…

Llama’s love to trek, they love being in the mountains and they are built to travel over rocky terrains. Lucky for our boys they get to live out their ‘Alpacaly Ever After’ here with us in the Lake District and it’s perfect for them!

All of our llama boys have been re-homed with us, all of them have a different story of where they came from and what their previous lives were like. Some of the stories we know and some we don’t. But what we do know is that all of them are now living their best llama lives with us!

So here they are, we’ll tell you as much as we can about them. They all have unique and totally different personalities and the best way to get to know them is to join them for some time on the hills, spending 2 – 8 hours with a llama is such an amazing experience, we might be a bit biased, but you only have to see our Tripadvisor reviews (keep scrolling for these) to see that it’s not just us…

Our 2-hour Llama Treks

Our full-day Llama Treks

Our New Boys are; Echo, Obama, Larry aka Hugo, Boo (not to be confused with our famous Alpaca called Boo), Rocksteady, Louie and Mr Biggles… These boys are joining our experienced trek squad of Dopey, Tim, Ming, Sven, Maximus, Zeus, JoJo and Frodo* and not forgetting Gorgeous George. (if you hover over their photos below their names will pop up for you.)

*JoJo and Frodo are currently being rested. Anyone that’s met these two will know they are inseparable. Jojo has lost a bit of weight this winter so we are giving him the summer off and we are monitoring him closely, his best buddy is by his side so Team FroJo are not featured here for the 2021 Trek Squad.

 

Your Tripadvisor Reviews…

Thanks Stephanie…

We had a wonderful time walking two llamas (Tim and Zeus) up Cat Bells. It was a really fun experience, made even better by our excellent guides, Ruby and Hol, who were very friendly and extremely knowledgable. Views from Cat Bells were spectacular and the photos Ruby took of us with Tim and Zeus we will treasure! We will definitely be coming back. Thank you very much.

We took Llamas (Dopey & Ming) up to Catbells, we had an amazing time, it started to rain and was just as enjoyable! Terry & Nicole (I think that was her name, apologies if it’s wrong) gave us facts about the Llama and the area throughout and were very welcoming! The walk wasn’t very challenging so you have to be an experienced mountaineer, just need a pair of walking boots and some wet and warm kit!

Thanks Yummy Mummy…

A fantastic 2 hour walk up catbells with llamas Tim and Zeus and our guides Ruby and Terry. Felt very safe covid wise with a discussion before we set off.
There were 6 in the group which started from little town. Great couple of hours with some photo opportunities. Ruby talked nonstop all things llama. You do have to be reasonably fit as it does involve walking a fell so maybe do the walk at lingholm if not very fit.
Once you walk a llama you can’t wait to book another visit. Loved every minute. Thought you couldn’t beat the alpaca walk at lingholm but this is even better!

Llamazing!

Absolutely llamazing! (Sorry if my pun is llame) We had so much fun walking the llamas, they were super cute and friendly (didn’t spit like everyone warns). The guides were fabulous, super down to earth and lovely to talk to. The trek was a good pace and fun.
Thanks Toni…
Had a wonderful experience walking “Dopey” – so adorable (and socially distanced friends) – up between Catbells and Maiden Moor to a spectacular viewpoint overlooking Derwentwater.
Our guides Ruby and Rachel were friendly and welcoming on our mini adventure, dispensing lots of useful and fascinating information about these amazing animals.
We had a very clear Covid briefing before we went on our walk so felt very safe but also very relaxed as the ‘rules’ were easy to follow and not intrusive.
This trip, a walk with the alpacas – who are super cute – or even a ‘meet and greet’ with the alpacas should be on every visitor to the Lake District’s ‘to do’ list whatever the weather and time of year.
