Take a Llama to Lunch

Filed in Summer Day Tours, Summer Featured by on September 10, 2015

Get to know the curious nature of llamas on our “Take a Llama to Lunch” hikes. The ‘boys’ are wildly popular with children due to their gentle nature. The easy pace and length make llama hikes excellent outings for families, friends, and groups. Llamas make excellent trail companions as pack animals and can carry as much as 80 pounds. They do not like being ridden no matter how much grain we feed them.
