Here at Cheshire Alpacas we pride ourselves on giving our visitors the best experience that we possibly can.
We must admit, our Alpacas do tend to do most of the work with their calming nature and quirky personalities. During your experience, we’ll be there to have a good old natter about everything ‘Alpaca’ related whilst you take them for their morning stroll through the beautiful Cheshire Countryside.
Our group Alpaca Walking Experiences run daily, all year round, including weekends, at 10am.
NEW! We are now offering one, private, afternoon Alpaca walk per day. These sessions will accommodate a maximum of 4 guests and will include 2 Alpacas for the group. Our private experience will begin at 1:30pm daily. Please note, there will be additional charges for this experience. Please see our price list page.
Our alpaca walking experiences last for around 90 minutes, however they can sometimes go slightly over.
Please note, animal welfare is our main priority, and therefore we do only offer 1 Alpaca Walk per day, per Alpaca! This is usually at 10am, to ensure that our babies have the rest of the day to graze in the fields, chill, sunbathe and do what Alpacas do! They have a hard life don’t they? Occasionally, we may offer an afternoon walk if there is particular Alpacas that missed out on their morning walks!
Your alpaca experience will begin with a short safety briefing where we’ll go through all the important stuff and all the ‘do’s & the don’t’s to ensure that your experience is as safe and as enjoyable as possible. You’ll then get some bonding time with your new best friend (which they will be!) And you’ll also get to feed them their breakfast before we head out on to the walk.
The walk itself usually lasts for around 30 minutes, however this does all depend on the Alpacas. Sometimes they like to take their time and enjoy the scenery, other times they like walk around slightly quicker. As mentioned earlier, the Alpacas welfare is more important to us than anything, and we will never rush them as we like it to be just as enjoyable for them as it is for you guys. What the alpaca wants, the alpaca gets! (yes – all of our animals are a little spoilt here on the farm!)
Once the walk has finished, we’ll then release them back into the paddock, where they’ll spend the rest of the day, grazing. You’ll then get some free time after the walk to mingle with the entire herd, feed them their favourite treats and of course get those all important, last minute selfies with your trekking buddy..well until next time!
Not to worry if you forget your camera, because we become your personal photographers throughout the experience too, capturing those all important special moments of you and your alpaca, action pics are always the best anyway! You’ll even get to take home a framed photograph of you with your fleecy friend as a souvenir to remember your day.
Once your experience has finished, you’ll be able to sit back, relax and enjoy a brew in the company of the alpacas and reflect on your day with the family!
