Book Your Llama Hike Now!

  • What should I wear?

Always wear closed-toed shoes around llamas! You will be hiking on a trail, so having shoes with good traction and support is important. Broken in sneakers or hiking boots work well. (Blisters are our #1 concern!) Dress in layers and bring a rain jacket- it’s Colorado so be prepared!

  • What should I bring?

You should bring two 32-ounce filled water bottles (like a Nalgene bottle), sunscreen, hat/sunglasses, camera, and light snacks. Bring a rain jacket, just in case. Don't forget to carry with you any medical needs you may have, like an inhaler, epi pen, etc. Putting everything into a backpack is helpful because it will keep all of your things organized, but the llamas will be carrying it all!

  • What if it's raining?

In the mountains, if it does rain, it usually doesn't last long. Our hike will go rain or shine, so make sure to bring a rain jacket. If we decide the weather is too severe for our hike and we cancel the hike, you will be fully refunded and offered the opportunity to reschedule.

  • Do llamas spit?

Llamas get such a bad rap! This is one of the biggest misconceptions about llamas. Well-socialized llamas rarely, if ever, spit at humans. Spitting is not a pleasant experience for them! Our llamas have never spit at us or any of our participants. Llamas can sometimes spit at each other to show irritation or displeasure. Llamas do sneeze to clear their nasal passageways, and sometimes people think they are spitting because that makes a similar sound.

  •  Can I ride a llama?

This is another one of those llama myths! Llamas can be used for a lot of things, but riding is not one of them. Their anatomy isn't built for that. You'll be hiking and holding onto the llama's lead.

  •  Can llamas bite me? Are they dangerous?

Llamas have no upper front teeth and therefore can't bite you, but most importantly, they wouldn't want to! Our llamas are used to lots of human contact and are sweet and gentle. We'll introduce you to them and work with you to feel comfortable around them before we start hiking. You will fall in love with them!

  •  Where will we be hiking?

We will be hiking at Beaver Ranch Park, a 450-acre destination in the Rocky Mountains. It is about 45 minutes outside of Denver. We will send you specific directions and we will meet you at the park.

  • What is the trail like? Will it be difficult?

Our trail will give you the perfect experience of hiking in the Rocky Mountains! How challenging the trail is really depends on your current fitness level, so please call us for further questions or concerns. The trail length is 3.5 miles and has 300 elevation gain and loss. Our hike will last between 2- 2 1/2 hours. It starts off going through a small meadow, over a bridge through a marshy area, and then begins to climb up into the forest. Once we've reached the top of the short climb, you'll be surrounded by aspen and pine trees where we will point out pretty views, wildflowers, and stories of the area, all while enjoying the company of your new favorite hiking buddy.

  • How many people/llamas can be in a group?

When you make a reservation, you are reserving that hike for your group only. The minimum number is 2 and the maximum is 4. We will bring 2 llamas for our hike. If you have more than 2 people for the hike, you will take turns who is leading a llama. Most children ages 8 and up will be able to lead a llama on their own. Children who are younger than 8 years old will be able to lead a llama on a case by case basis.

  • Can I bring my dog? 

No. Our llamas are usually curious around dogs. The dogs have a range of reactions to the llamas. Our biggest concern is that your dog will get too close, act aggressively towards the llamas, and it will cause them to kick at your dog. The last thing we want is for you to be driving to the emergency vet!

  • Why hike with a llama?

 It’s just about one of the coolest things! Llamas can carry all of your gear. They are quiet and peaceful. Llamas have soft pads (like a dog) on their feet and have very minimal impact on the environment. They are gentle giants that are curious and calm. Llamas don’t bite. They are great listeners. You’ll fall in love with your hiking companions!
