Nestled in the heart of County Westmeath, Andean Alpacas offer the perfect setting to unwind and recharge. Enjoy a 2 hour trek with an alpaca. At the beginning of the trek, each participant will be paired with an alpaca and you will be given a quick talk on the animals and some tips on how to get the most out of your trekking experience, where photo opportunities will be available. Light refreshments are available at the end of the trek. The trek is suitable for all ages from 10 years of age and above. Children aged 10 years and over must be accompanied by a responsible adult taking part on the trek.
The meet and greet experience at Andean Alpacas is aimed at younger children who are unable to participate in their full trekking experience. During the meet and greet you will be introduced to many curious and friendly alpacas, including baby alpacas which are known as cria. You will have the opportunity to feed them and learn a little bit about them. Depending on the ages of children, it might be possible to bring some of the smaller alpacas on a walk which is considerably shorter then their full trekking route. Younger children under the age of 10 years can accompany one paying adult free of charge. Each child must be accompanied by 1 adult.
