Make your day with an alpaca – llama trek
This is what you have been dreaming of your entire life or at least for the past few days….. Have fun walking one of our remarkable alpacas or llamas. We know this has been on a lot of people’s bucket lists. We offer both Private and Group Alpaca / Llama Treks. Both are a wonderful opportunity to create a lasting memory.
Walk our picturesque farm along through meadows and woods with one of our trained guides and enjoy the company of your own personal alpaca or llama.
Imagine yourself walking through the woods with one of these gentle creatures. You won’t want to miss this adventure.
This is a fantastic thing to do when you are in the Hudson Valley. We are near Poughkeepsie, only 1.5 hours from New York City. We are TripAdvisor’s #1 Thing to do in Pleasant Valley. NY.
Groups are small in size, each person walks their own alpaca or llama. Ages 9+ You can purchase one ticket on a group alpaca trek or all of them.
We have many people who love Private Treks. Only members of your party and our tour guide are on these treks. Our Private Treks can have 2 to 15 people. Each person walks their own alpaca. Ages 9+
Please note that our farm is only open to people with tickets. We do not offer a waiting area. When you are here we want our focus to be on you and giving you the best experience possible.

How many people can a Private Trek have? We offer Private alpaca and llama treks for up to 15 people.
Do you have to be 9 or older? Yes, we require walkers to be ages 9 or older for safety reasons.
Can I request a specific alpaca or llama? You can as long as they are one of the camelids that go on walks. We will try to make it happen for you. As you know, our alpacas and llamas choose whether they want to go on a walk. They let us know if they are feeling up to doing it. (EX: I don’t know if they have a headache or sore foot). So we cannot guarantee a specific animal but certainly will do our best.
Can I buy a ticket for a child and just have them walk alongside me? No, our treks are for ages 9+. However, younger children love our Farm Tours – this is a great option for a family to do.
Can I walk alongside? No – each person gets their own alpaca to hang out with and believe us – an alpaca is not something you want to share. 🙂 It is a special time with an adorable alpaca and therefore we only allow one person per alpaca. Each participant must purchase a ticket and be part of the group. In fact you need a ticket to be on the farm.
Can a minor walk without an adult? No, all walkers under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a ticket holding adult
Can I hold a child and walk an alpaca? For safety reasons, we cannot allow this. Please be aware that if a minor is accompanying you when you show up for the trek you will be unable to participate in the trek and will not be eligible for a refund.
Can I bring my dog? As much as we love dogs, there are no pets allowed on the property except service dogs. You are not allowed to leave them in the car. Please do not bring your dog. If you do you will not be able to participate in the trek and would not be eligible for a refund.
What happens if I cannot make it or am late: If you are too late you will miss out on the trek. Please plan on coming early. See our cancellation policy in the footer of our website.
Is professional photography allowed? We have special programs for professionals that are not part of our treks and farm tours. Please see our photography page for more info.
Can I book a private trek ? Absolutely! We have a variety of options for private treks on our calendar.
What should I wear? Please wear shoes that are appropriate for walking through trails and fields.
