We did the "take a llama to lunch" hike and loved it. It really was the highlight of our trip to New Mexico. Stuart is an exceptional naturalist who knows not only about nature but also the culture, geology, and history of the area. He is also a genuinely interesting and kind person and we loved spending the day with... More

This was my second time taking this trek with Stuart and the llama's but my wife's first time. We are already talking about doing it again next year. The hike itself is kind of strenuous but we had been preparing so did pretty well. Bucky, Diego and K2 were great companions and kept us entertained a good part of the... More

This adventure went well beyond expectations. It was a 2-day trek and I was simply amazed and in awe of the entire experience. Would do it again in a heartbeat - and will. I have done many hikes in the national parks however the llamas give it a unique and totally A+++ element. They are completely at ease with you... More

My husband and I enthusiastically recommend Wild Earth Adventure’s “Take a Llama to Lunch” hike! We participated two weeks ago, and it was an unforgettable highlight of our vacation. We still talk about Picchu and Mardi Gras - our two llamas for the hike – and the others every day. Our guide and “llama whisperer”, Stuart, is a perfect leader... More

We had a great time learning about llamas and hiking with them, they are wonderful creatures. The area we hiked in was beautiful. Stuart is very knowledgeable about the animals and care for them well. He was also informative about the area we hiked in and very respectful of nature. This was the highlight of our trip to Taos!

Sure, you could just go for a day hike and enjoy the same wilderness area. But go with Stewart and his llamas and you will have a complete experience. Stewart shares his vast knowledge and experience, helps people to bond with the llamas and leads a delightful hike. The llamas keep the pace slow to moderate, so it isn't too... More

This was one of the most fun I've ever had. We were part of a group of 5 doing a "lunch with the llamas" trek. Stuart, the "llama man", is wonderful - patient, informative, knowledgeable, and comfortable to be around. He consistently explains what's going on, and why. For some reason, I just really enjoyed the llamas, particularly my "big... More

My husband and I spent our wedding anniversary in Taos, and we signed up for a Llama day hike with Wild Earth Llama Adventures. It was truly an experience we will cherish forever! It was one of our most memorable anniversary trips yet. Our guide, Stuart, has been leading these tours for over twenty years, but he is as passionate... More

So interesting and so much fun. Learned so much about the local eco system and llamas. The hike up the mountain for the half day trip is 4 miles which was perfect with a great lunch served half way. The llamas were sweet and easily led the way carrying all of the gear. Beautiful scenery and breath taking views. Great... More

It was an absolute joy trekking with rescued llamas in the splendor of true wilderness, led by an instantly likable, extremely knowledgeable, totally professional guide/educator/humanist; Stuart Wilde. More than a hike in the woods, this was journey of personal challenges and responsibility, team-building, acquired knowledge, and just plain fun. The lunch was splendid, the scenery beautiful, and the llamas were... More
