Spend the day hiking with a friendly llama and professional naturalist guide in Rocky Mountain National Park. Llamas are social, curious animals and enjoy hiking as much as humans. Their subtle nature allows children as young as five to lead llamas on the trail. Equally fun and educational for adults as it is for kids, this is a great experience for families, groups, and couples. Hiking with a professional guide and llama companion by your side will be one of the highlights of your vacation.
Wild Basin boasts an incredible landscape of spectacular waterfalls, alpine lakes, and stunning views of the Continental Divide. The region was aptly named for its abundance of plants and wildlife. The trail gradually gains elevation as it meanders next to a rushing creek. Our guides will tailor your llama adventure based on your time frame, level of ability, and interest. With the llamas carrying lunch and day hiking equipment, you will be able to hike at ease and soak up the magic of the mountains.
Your guide will share the unique history of Ccara llamas, demonstrate how to approach them, brush them, and lead them on the trail. It is common people develop such a bond with their llama that they want to lead the same llama all day. They enjoy being spoken to in calm voices, and it is common to hear them humming along the trail. Llamas tend to hike at a slower pace, and naturally Llamas will be the focus of the day.
