Alpaca Walking


We offer a fabulous Alpaca walking experience in the East Hertfordshire countryside, a fantastic present or a treat for yourself. A really different experience for that animal/alpaca mad friend or relative. You can also give our gift voucher for alpaca walking which comes in values of £27, £36, £54 or £72 so the recipient can book a walk on a date convenient for them (valid until 31st Jan 2020-note this is for booking not doing the activity). 

There are two can have your own alpaca for the entirety of the walk OR share an alpaca with a friend – you and your friend can take turns leading your alpaca during the walk.  


Our Spring/Summer season starts in April, and continues until September. All Frosty Christmas walks are now fully booked but there are five alpaca walks in January 2020 now available to book in our online shop.  After this we are closed for alpaca walking until April 2020.  DATES FOR 2020 (April-Sept) GO LIVE FOR BOOKING 1ST DEC 2019.


Note we may have late availability as people book a long way ahead and sometimes want to change date so its worth ringing  7 days before or asking to be put on a waiting list.


You can either choose a walk with refreshments and biscuits to finish or you can complete a truly memorable walk with a homemade cream tea (tea bread and one other bakery item also included!) Note the different price of these walks reflects the difference in the food & refreshments offer at the end of the walk, the time with the alpacas is the same for both.

Hi Penny & Steven, just a quick note to say thank you both for a truly enjoyable afternoon we both had with you both, all the alpacas and of course Isaacs.  I have wanted a walk with them for years and it was well worth waiting for. We very much want to come again so keeping my fingers crossed.
Maggi, Hitchin


I just wanted to say a big thank you for this morning, my son had a brilliant time, we all enjoyed it. Your alpacas are lovely animals all with their own characters!  I can see why you keep them.  I'm sure we will be back at some point. 
Lisa, Welwyn




What an absolutely brilliant experience. We both enjoyed it very much and hope to return to do another walk with you soon.

Thank you so much for providing such an enjoyable afternoon. The Alpacas were so biddable and really gorgeous to look at. Jane was absolutely smitten by them and their glorious fleece.
