Llamas are the perfect low impact, high altitude animal. They have little impact on fragile environments due to their padded feet and their droppings are ‘beads’ that are bio-degradable so you’ll barely notice where we have passed. They exemplify the ‘leave no trace’ ethic we practice, keeping our wilderness areas pristine.
Our guided day tours take a gentle stroll around the hidden beauty spots of the Hanmer village surrounds. The tour runs approximately 9.30am-3pm and guests join their llamas and our guide for a relaxed sit down lunch at a local restaurant.(Lunch is included in the tour cost).
The Inca empire relied on their llamas for clothing from their fibre and meat to supplement their diet. They were used as pack animals for transporting crops, trade goods and supplies and during wars they were utilised as portable camps, carrying supplies and weapons. So our boys will happily carry the load leaving you hands free to walk at a comfortable pace and enjoy the scenery. For our multi day tours there’s the added bonus of the level of comfort that pack animals can bring with our ample and delicious, freshly prepared food and comfortable sleeps, not to mention that extra photographic equipment or warm jacket.
There’s no better way to experience the natural beauty and spectacular scenery of our alpine wilderness area than with a llama companion and a knowledgeable guide. Our gentle boys are a practical and non-intrusive way to experience undisturbed nature at its best.
