Cost: Free clinic, followed by a $50 orientation class to lease a llama.
Why do it: Get in touch with a kind creature that can keep you company in the backcountry and help you carry your gear. These introductory llama clinics run by Paragon Guides are designed to familiarize backpackers with llamas and lead into their llama orientation class.

The three- to four-hour orientation class costs $100, or $50 for those who already attended the free introductory clinic.
