Normal service is resumed and treks are going ahead as of March 2021.
Its been a great summer for the llamas and trekking and everyone has thoroughly enjoyed all our trekking activities and all the eagerly anticipated treks that were put on hold earlier this year have now gone ahead. Obviously we have been very careful to put strict control measures in place to keep everyone safe and as an outdoor activity and generally walking in single file its very easy to keep a safe distance. Our risk assessments can also be sent to you on request for commercial larger groups if necessary.
All our guidelines for the treks will be sent out to you when you book and it is possible for us to lead either larger private family treks from the same household or ‘Bubble’ or can offer small or private treks where necessary. (One hour Mini treks have a minimum number of two people to go ahead)
After such a difficult time we believe the llamas have provided guests with some much needed KARMA and the therapeutic nature of communing with the llamas whilst enjoying exercise in the beautiful surroundings is just what everyone needed!Check out our latest Fun and Facts addition to the llama activities! This has proved very popular and as a hands on activity is enjoyed by all ages. This is available by booking in advance for groups of 4 or more people or a private activity for your family subject to a minimum charge.
For existing reorganised treks or new bookings please get in touch to arrange in good time as we are already booking up quickly for the summer months.
Cake and coffee is available to purchase before or after the trek or you can join us for lunch if you want to make more of a day of your experience! We now have a fantastic private area in the gardens of the Llama Karma Kafe specifically for all our trekking activities and away from the main building so your trek experience will be both private and safe.
WE HAVE ADDED A GREAT NEW LLAMA ACTIVITY FOR ALL AGES THIS WILL RUN ALL YEAR ROUND AND IS VERY HANDS ON WITH THE LLAMAS, COMBINING MORE PERSONAL INTERACTION SUCH AS GROOMING AND CARE ACTIVITIES FOR THOSE KEEN TO LEARN MORE ABOUT HOW WE CARE FOR THESE LOVELY COMPANIONS THESE CAN NOW BE BOOKED ON LINE ALONG WITH OR INSTEAD OF THE TREKS
If you would like to keep up to date with all things llama it would be great if you were to consider joining the British Llama Society who have a great website, an interesting quarterly magazine and a huge commitment to helping everyone to learn more out llamas and camelids in general. The BLS has regular shows, events and a great social network where people can share heart warming, interesting and funny stories, swap knowledge and ideas and generally learn more about llamas.
