Guided Llama Treks
Join us for a multi-day llama-supported hiking adventure! Explore Yellowstone National Park, the iconic Wind River Range, off-the-beaten-path mountains around Jackson Hole, the west side of the Tetons, or Peru's amazing Ausangate trail. Our llama treks are all-inclusive hiking vacations that take you to some of the most beautiful mountain country in the United States and beyond.
Aside from carrying the bulk of the supplies, allowing guests to hike with light day packs, llamas are amazing trail companions. You can choose to lead a llama or just hike on your own, but either way you're likely to fall in love with these amazing animals by the end of your trip. Low impact, strong, friendly, and exotic, llamas are the perfect pack animal. Joining a llama hike is something you won't soon forget!
Why Do a Llama Trek with Wildland?
More About Wildland Llama Treks
Why Join a Llama Trek?
Llamas allow guests to hike deep into the wilderness of stunning destinations and not have to carry the full weight of a multi-day backpack. Each llama can carry 70 pounds of equipment and supplies, which allows us to also pack in more elaborate meals and other amenities like tables and camp chairs. Many of our guests hike with llamas for the simple benefit of them carrying the gear, but by the end of the trip have fallen in love with these incredibly unique, hard working pack animals. They make a hiking trip better in almost every way!
What's Included on Llama Trips?
Our trips are all-inclusive! We provide tents, sleeping pads, sleeping bags, backpacks, trekking poles, all your meals, snacks, guides, and local transportation. You bring along your clothes, shoes, rain gear, a couple water bottles, personal items, and a headlamp and you're good to go! We don't charge extra for almost anything, unlike many hiking companies out there who charge extra for "gear rental fees."
Are Llamas Good Pack Animals?
Yes! Llamas are amazing pack animals. They are low impact, friendly, sure footed, and great camp guards. If a bear is in the area, they let us know and will help alert us to any other possible intruders as well. They don't require heavy feed and they don't lead to erosion of trails or denude the ground where we camp. As mentioned above, many of our guests join a llama trek because they don't want to carry a heavy multi-day backpack, but by the end of the trip they've fallen in love with these amazing animals.
