An animal-friendly hike with llamas and alpacas towards the Schneerosental valley.

We start from the „Schönauer Hütte“ in Breitenbach, where our llamas and alpacas are at home. The walk takes approx. 2 hours incl. a leisurely break through the surrounding countryside. 

Depending on the participants stamina the walk can sometimes take us to Mariastein or to the Forellenhof. At all times the route is adapted to the participants. Please wear sturdy shoes (at least trainers, better hiking boots) and suitable clothes (rainproof clothing, protection against the sun) and bring something to eat and drink.

Lamas and alpacas are animals with a strong fight-or-flight response and can sometimes startle therefore for safety reasons only adults and children age 10 or older are allowed to lead their own lama/alpaca. Overall, the animals are quiet and gentle and enjoy people’s company, which they show by soft sniffing. Then they breathe into your hair saying: „I like you“.
During the walk there is plenty of time to learn about these creatures, their characters, eating habits and how to care for them. And: we would like to shatter the myth; lamas and alpacas rarely spit at humans.

Total duration of the event: approximately 3 hours / max. number of participants: 4-10
