What is Llama Trekking?



     Who would pay money to take a llama for a walk? Well, it turns out, lots of people...of all ages and of all walks of life. They are animal lovers mostly, intrigued by the mystique of a leggy, necky creature who is currently enjoying an iconic moment of fame on back packs, blankets, tee-shirts and even the masks that have become a necessary accessory of present day. Llama motifs are everywhere! So it shouldn't be a surprise that folks are curious about spending time in the company of real llamas. 
     Most of those who find their way to Moose River Farm for a llama trek have never seen one up close. Soon they become captivated by large eyes and long lashes that stare with rarely a blink. Trekkers are encouraged to stroke their llamas' necks in an effort to make an emotional connection with their novel hiking partner. Combining the trek with breathtaking Adirondack landscape has created the perfect family activity. Even our winter treks are magical. White dolloped trees from freshly fallen snow create memories that keep spirits warm until spring. We are always looking for new ways to share our llamas. Lighted treks and other special events make life interesting. Check here for updates and offerings. 
      Isn't it time to reserve your llama trek today?

"Traversing the woods with (llamas) Adonis at my shoulder and Bravo in tow relieves lingering stress from the day. They are Buddha and Dalai-lama rolled into one, my spiritual advisers. Keeping time with my llamas' hushed rhythms, I leave my troubles on the trail behind me." from They Teach Without Words; The Animals of Moose River Farm by Anne T. Phinney
