(West Virginia) We offer guided half-day, full-day, and multiday llama hikes and pack trips. With many route choices, we have an adventure for everyone.
This depends on the type of trip. On day hikes, we bring a minimum of 3 llamas; on pack trips, no less than 5. You'll walk mostly in shade, at a llama's easy pace of about 2 mph. We don't actually make that kind of time, because there's plenty of reasons to stop along the way.

Age range, type of group
We've had guests from ages 1 to about 70, in every combination. We do our very best to insure compatibility of interests and abilities.
Sleeping and meals
Our pack trips are camping trips; we camp in remote, beautiful places. We do have campfires. We provide good hot breakfasts and dinners, and sack lunches, which are most convenient for day hiking
. Most people prefer to stay in nearby lodging the night before their llama hike; we will recommend area lodging when you make your reservation.
No pets. Sorry, we've tried hiking with dogs; even well-trained dogs seem to become over-enthusiastic around llamas, creating the potential for problems, including possible injury to the dog if the llama feels threatened.
We have no other restrictions; "live and let live" is our philosophy.
Rates begin at $75 for adults/$60 for children age 12 and under for the half-day hike, up to $425/$340 for a three-day pack trip. (These are 2002 rates; we expect they will remain unchanged for at least two more years.)

We began taking folks out into some beautiful West Virginia places, in 1997. We still love it - our guests are the best there are!
