Alpaca Walking

Terms and Conditions
  • All walks must be booked in advance and are available Thursday to Sunday. Please send us a message or email us at lovealpacas@oriontree.uk for more information about our alpaca walking or to book.
  • It is important at the time of booking that we know if any of those walking have any health limitations or health issues that we should be aware of. Where possible, we are very happy to modify the walk or distance in a way that accommodates any health concerns.
  • COST: £15 per alpaca plus £5 per accompanying person not walking an alpaca. Please note: Under normal circumstances (and unless previously agreed) we ask for a maximum of one person accompanying for every alpaca walker.
  • Walking an alpaca allows you to walk YOUR VERY OWN ALPACA for the entirety of the walk.
  •  Accompanying a walker entitles you to walk alongside an alpaca walker but not to walk an alpaca yourself.
  • We ask for a 50% non-refundable deposit in advance, payable by BACS or cheque.
  • Alpacas are herd animals so a minimum of 2 alpacas must be booked for each walk. We can only cater for a maximum of 7 walking alpacas at the moment.
  • It is possible to accommodate single walkers but only in conjunction with another group so as to always have a minimum of 2 alpacas walking.
  • Walks start from the smallholding. We are not an “open farm” and can only offer alpaca walks by prior arrangement.
  • Children must be over 7 years old to walk an alpaca on their own.
  • Children aged 5 to 7 may accompany the walk providing that each child is accompanied by an adult. Due to the length of the walk, no children under 5 years old are allowed on walks.
  • Sensible footwear is a must (wellies or walking boots) and we strongly recommend long trousers.
  • Clothing should be appropriate for the conditions but please avoid really bright colours or anything that might flap.
  • We have stringent bio-security so we will ask you to dip your footwear on arrival.
  • We have a strict no dog policy on the farm or walk.
  • Alpacas are like us and won’t be happy to walk in bad weather. If we (or you) defer due to bad weather or unforeseen circumstances, we are happy to rebook at a suitable time thereafter.
  • We can cater for educational visits, hen parties or special events – please contact us for details.
  • Vouchers and gift cards are available – please contact us for details.
