Picnic with llamas


If you’ve always wanted an adorable selfie with a llama, this is your chance! During this 5 hour experience, you will get to trek off-the-beaten-path alongside some graceful llamas. After local llama breeders introduce you to the inspirational Llama Pack Project and its goals and visions, you will assist with the herding and packing of these native, eco-friendly animals.

Once ready, you will begin your leisurely walk with the llamas, following a dirt track through grazing fields, past small farming communities featuring adobe houses and courtyards filled with local crops while making your way to the rest stop. Here, you will enjoy a traditional Peruvian snack, while you learn about how your participation in this activity has contributed to the maintenance of the ancient tradition of llama breeding while creating a business opportunity for the local families.

You will taste 3 different varieties of native potatoes prepared in a Peruvian ‘earth oven’ known as a huatia, along with broad beans, sweet potatoes, oca, and corn. You will also get a fruit, an energy bar, coca tea and something sweet. You then make your way back to the base camp with your new llama friends leading the way.

Walking distance: 2 km (1,2 miles)
