This was our second visit to Victory Ranch. Since I'm an avid knitter, I love visiting the store and seeing the animals. The alpacas are just too cute, and the dogs and llamas are part of the ranch. It's a scenic ride from Las Vegas, Santa Fe, or Taos, not that long of a drive. We've always been greeted at... More

I took this trip reluctantly since I was not comfortable venturing too far from Santa Fe (this is my first time visiting this state) The drive was very scenic with mountains. This ranch is located out in the middle of nowhere and my cell had a hard time with gps. I suggest printing directions. While pulling up to the ranch... More

Wow...off the beaten path, but worth every minute. I found this ranch via RoadTrippers (app) by accident. My daughter (10 years) and I visited while we were spending time on spring break in Santa Fe. The drive from Santa Fe was easy and took about 90 minutes and was very scenic. Brian (our tour guide and owner) and his wife... More

Brian gave an informative and fun tour. Loved feeding and petting the alpacas and dogs. The gift shop also has a fun mix of alpaca yarns (identified with the picture... More

You must experience this amazing place for all ages. The gift shop is the perfect holiday shopping and everyday that you need something special. The tour feeding the Alpacas is for every age. My 6 year old visitors to Mora were just as delighted as my 85 year old in laws. There is something for everyone on your list. Now... More

We were part of a tour group that made this one of our stops. We were given the opportunity to feed some of the young alpacas. They were so eager and sweet. The young man who introduced us to the alpacas and offered information was very witty and informative. What a joy to meet the gentle creatures and their caretakers.

We've been here many times, delighted to see the hundreds of alpacas, babies (crias), dogs, llamas, and other critters. This is the largest supplier of Alpaca fiber in US. The owners, staff, and volunteers are more than pleased to welcome visitors of all ages. Kids love it. Tours and feeding times are 11AM and 1 PM, with other times scheduled... More

This beautiful family owned ranch outside of Mora, has more than 300 alpaca. Originally a domesticated animal from Peru, the family started with 14 animals about 25 years ago. For a small fee, you get info on the animals and farm, and then the highlight, going out with the young ones and hand feeding them. They have the most adorable... More

Victory Ranch is a nice one hour drive from Taos. We had ample time to feed the alpacas and got some great pictures. It's definitely worth a stop and unless you hate animals, you'll love hanging out with the alpacas! There are also lots of other animals, including llamas, friendly dogs, cats, etc. A lovely family run operation.
