Take a look at this Football Experience located in Towcester, Northamptonshire.
Gentle, affectionate and intelligent, llamas are excellent companions for an English country walk. On arrival, receive an educational introduction to llamas in the park and breeding centre’s log cabin to prepare for the trek. Once ready, take a guided two hour stroll across a scenic mixture or arable, pasture and woodland with your newfound friend alongside to carry your rucksack and camera all the way (one llama is shared between two people during busy periods)! After the trek, head to the farm to get up close and personal with llama mothers and babies and explore the visitor centre and gift shop which offers some great llamarabilia’! Also, feel free to take along a picnic to enjoy in the farm, or head to one of the local inns.
Llama treks are available all year round, any day of the week (with the exception of Christmas, Boxing and New Year’s Days). We recommend booking with at least several weeks advance notice for the most popular peak summer weekend dates.
Treks are only cancelled or curtailed in extreme weather conditions. Please call the centre before leaving if in any doubt.
Lasts around two hours. Please arrive 10 – 15 minutes in advance of the booked time to ensure a prompt start. The trek cannot be held up and any latecomers will forfeit their place.
Your trek consists of a small group of up to six people, your llamas and your guide.
Only paying guests may attend. Dogs are not permitted.
Dress for a walk in the country, in long trousers, sturdy waterproof clothes and footwear, plus a hat on a cold day. Some spare wellies, rain capes and gaiters are kept at the farm for use by customers just in case.
Minimum age is 12. All participants must be reasonably fit and able to walk several miles (around three and a half to four). There is disabled access to the visitor centre.
Please note you won’t ride the llamas. They are trusting creatures and must be treated with respect at all times. Lunch is not included.
