About Alpacas

Alpacas are domesticated versions of Vicunas, South American ruminants which live high in the Andes. They are very similar to their cousin the Llama who are bred as pack animals. Alapcas are bred because they produce soft wool which is similar to lambswool but is much warmer and doesn’t tend to be as itchy.

Living for 15 – 20 years, Alpacas are prey to mountain lions and coyotes however their long necks help them look out for danger.

About the Trek

You will meet outside the café entrance where you will be given a brief introduction and safety information talk, be introduced to the Alpaca’s and explained about the trek route.
