  • Alpaca Experience and Trek
    The Alpaca Experience, for those 12 years old and up, includes learning all about alpacas, their origin, use, biology & behavior as well as a trek around the farm while leading your own alpaca "buddy"! We start in the Tuscan inspired barn, housing our horses and friendly giant donkey, Jack. A short talk about Alpacas, incl. their care and handling, will help you become "Alpaca Experts"! Next we assign each person an alpaca and begin our trek. The trail starts across a bridge, up a wooded ravine and then along a fence adjacent to a 2,000 acre cattle ranch where you will see beautiful vistas of the surrounding hills and mountains of Carmel Valley. We stop under a large oak trea for refreshments and interact with the alpacas. Continuing on the trail we go down to the pastures, passing horses, alpacas, goats and more stunning views of Carmel Valley. There will be ample opportunities to engage with your furry friends and take photos of the landscape as well as the alpacas. Other things to note: the Alpaca Trek is not suitable for children under 12. Must be able to physically walk/hike up a moderately sloped trail while leading 150+ pound alpaca. Wear proper shoes for hiking. Running shoes/sneakers are ok. We will still go on the trek if there is light rain-so if this is the forecast bring umbrellas/ponchos. Be sure to bring your camera or smartphone to take lots of ph
