Llama Trekking - Information
Introductory Session = All our Llama Treks include a personalised introduction to familiarise you with Llamas and Llama Trekking; then a specific intro. to the characters of our Llamas; after which you get to choose and are welcomed to your animal...
Llama Trekking Guide = An experienced trekking guide accompanies all our Llama Treks. Your guide will take you round your route, and will help you get the most out of the experience. During your trek, PLEASE ask any questions you like about your llama. Your guide will also help describe what's hapenning, or simply the characteristics and behaviour of Llamas, so you will be full informed and knowledgeable by the time you're finished!
Location = Half-day Llama Treks start from and return to Kaikoura i-Site
Taster and Winter Warmer treks meet at the Kaikoura Farm Park, which has ample car parking. See location page, for details.
Bring = camera, waterproofs and a warm layer (just in case!); stout footwear eg: walking boots or trainers (please no sandles or flip-flops!)
Optional = water bottle, hat, sun cream, gloves, scalf, ...
You’ll have llama saddle bags to store your stuff, but they’re only so big!
Weather = we still trek in light wind and light rain. Strong wind is usually okay. We do not trek in heavy rain, or if heavy rain is forecast (under these circumstances, we will do our best to move you to a convenient alternate day/date. If none can be found, you will receive a refund - see small print).
At the end = of the Half-day trek, most customers continue walking the Kaikoura Peninsular Walking track. Some decide to return in our horse-float vehicle, which picks up our guide and the llama, and returns through Kaikoura town, and back to our farm.
CHILDREN ~ ultimately, this is at the discretion of the parent
Babies (1-3) = no charge - must be carried throughout the trek. No push chairs/strollers. (We've two baby back-packs for hire = $10 per trek)
