The longer alpaca trek complements our alpaca walking programme each year. It is ideal for those who have been on one of our walks or elsewhere alpaca walking and would like to take a step up and spend longer with their alpaca followed by a Yew Tree lunch to finish off. See more details below.

Our Yew Tree Alpaca Trek is a double length alpaca walk of approx 1¾ hours with a break halfway in a grassy field / shady orchard for refreshments and biscuits at the half way stage. At the end of the trek you'll have worked up an appetite so we're sure you'll enjoy our lunch of freshly made sandwiches, yogurts and cakes/bakes and refresments to restore your energy. Not forgetting a chance to browse our range of alpaca products.
You'll start your trek with a short talk about alpacas and the Yew Tree herd. We then go to our fields where you meet your alpaca and have a short pre-trek training session around the field before you set out.
The trek is approx. 1¾ hours and the whole visit to Yew Tree Alpacas 3-3½ hours.
This is an ideal option for those who have already been on an alpaca walk either at Yew Tree or elsewhere. If you have not walked an alpaca before, we recommend our shorter walk option first. However this is not essential and if you consider yourself physically fit and confident around animals then this trek may be just for you.
For those who have already been on one of Yew Tree's alpaca walks you can request your favourite alpaca when you book.
Heres some feedback and insight from one of our customers who has contacted us keen to rebook!
I took part in a trek in July for my friend's 50th birthday and enjoyed it so much I wanted to buy another in 2019 for my sister and her partner. Louise, Hertford
Louise writes... I bought the trek for my friend's surprise 50th birthday present - a short discussion about the day, then the introduction to our alpaca then off we went on a lovely trek. The short break and drink was most welcoming (we fed our alpacas carrots during the break). It was over all too quickly back to the farm for lunch. A great day.
There are two booking options; you can have your own alpaca for the entirety of the trek OR share an alpaca with a friend – you and your friend can take turns leading your alpaca during the trek.
One person trekking with their alpaca - £49.50 including refreshments en route and lunch after the walk
