We had such a fabulous time during our Lunch with a Llama adventure! We started by helping Stuart to brush the llamas and give them locally grown treats. There were probably 12 people on our hike and the little children got their very own llama. The adults shared one along the mile long hike up Columbine Trail. Our llama was... More

We just finished the 3-day llama trek into the Valle Vidal area of the New Mexico Sangre de Christo mountains. We were with a total of 10 people including the guide. The group included four 12 and 13 year olds. We had 9 llamas and were able to hike back into the wilderness to be completely away from civilization. We... More

The "Lunch with the Llamas" hike was a very unique experience. The scenery was beautiful. The llamas were cute and friendly. The guide, Stuart, was very knowledgable and interesting. He taught us many interesting facts about the llamas and the surrounding nature. The lunch was tasty turkey sandwiches and salad. However, this is not the trip to take if you... More

OK first to be clear here: Everyone gets their own Llama to help haul their gear and to keep them company on the trip. The day starts with Stuart briefing you about Llamas and the hike ahead. As our group worked along planned route Stuart would stop to point out features of the forest or the wild herbs growing along... More

We did the "Lunch with a llama" experience back in October 2014, and had a blast in the Columbine Canyon together with Stuart and his llamas! Stuart knows everything there's to know about the areas he's travelling, and the llamas seemed to really enjoy spending the day outside together with us! (and who wouldn't...) Even if it's a once in... More

Our group did a beautiful day hike in the Carson National Forest between Questa and Red River, NM. Awesome guide, Stuart, was full of information on the forest, mountains, and the whole area. He made it fun and interesting for all. Of course the Llamas are wonderful! It was so much fun to interact these smart, gentle animals. The llamas... More

Where to start... This is an exceptional experience. The llamas are the sweetest, most gentle souls you would ever want to meet. They make lovely companions for what is an awesome up-close view of beautiful Northern New Mexico nature. Our guide Stuart was a wealth of fascinating information that kept our trip interesting, lively, and fun-filled. Thank you Diego, Seamus,... More

This was a very unique adventure we found on TripAdvisor and built a family snowboard/ski trip around. We did a customized day hike above the beautiful Rio Grand Gorge. The guide was extremely knowledgeable about the history, wildlife and culture in the area, even to the point of distinguishing the bear scat vs the bob cat scat. The llamas were... More
