Llama Hike

Enjoy a one-of-a-kind hike in the beautiful Blue Ridge mountains with our friendly llamas! Hikers will learn about our famous llamas’ interesting histories and how to safely handle the animals before heading out on a hike with gorgeous mountaintop views on our private trails.

Each family/group gets 1 to 3 lovable llamas to share and there’s plenty of time for llama cuddles and, of course, llama selfies! This moderate hike is around 1 mile long and does require requires walking uphill on rocky and sometimes slippery terrain. This experience lasts approximately an hour and a half.

However, if we feel that the weather conditions will interfere with guests safety or are not conducive to a great experience (storms, heavy rain, or icy conditions), we will evaluate on a case by case basis. If we need to cancel an activity due to inclement weather, we will contact you as soon as possible and issue a full refund or reschedule depending on the guest’s preference.
