Booked this for our last day in New Zealand. One of the more unusual activities on offer and certainly unique in Kaikoura. Owner Kevin took us out with two Llamas and gave us all the instructions to handle them properly. He was very accomodating, allowing us plenty of photo opportunities and answering any questions we had. On route we stopped... More

The llama trek is a charming 2-3hr walk along the Kaikoura beach with a llama carrying your belongings and a few stops at the Fyffe house, seal colony and the optional Kaikoura farm as well as morning tea. The llamas are very comical and lovable and love to stop regularly to munch on leaves and grass! The trekking groups are... More

Had a lovely walk with my llama "Hero". The tour was very informative about Kaikoura, llamas and New Zealand in general. Once the tour got going and the guide (owner) felt comfortable with you, it was very pleasant. Fyffe House was very interesting. Views were incredible. Highly recommend, especially if you love animals. Llamas are so cute!

I did not know what to expect at first, because my girlfriend talked me into doing a lama trekking. When the lama’s arrived I was surprised about the size of them! I expected something as a walk with a dog, but I was very wrong. Instead of just having the animal at your side while you enjoy the wonderful surroundings,... More

Highly recommend the half-day trek! Kevin & Lynn were fantastic with prompt emails setting up a time that worked for me. The half-day trip includes entry to the Fyffe House whaling museum as a stopover during the trek, and ends with reaching the seal colony. Kevin was great with teaching us about the llama as we walked and overall a... More

This llama trek is wonderful, a definite highlight of my time in Kaikoura. Kevin and Lynn are great and provide insightful knowledge about llamas. Kevin is a pleasant and humorous guide for the trek. The llamas all have their own unique personalities and it was a pleasure to get to know my llama pal for the day, Dromy, as we... More

My wife and I really enjoyed walking our llamas along Kaikoura's beautiful coastline. We learned a lot about the history of the area, made friends with these interesting animals, and enjoyed some great scenery with our friendly and informative guide. Highly recommended.

The kids wanted to see llamas and this allowed them to interact with the animals. It is definitely an eye-opening experience as we live in a city. It was a lovely walk around Kaikoura and the Fyffe house was lovely and so was the tea. We also attracted a lot of attention from fellow tourists who were driving by along... More

We really enjoyed this experience as locals to the South Island. It is definitely a different way to see Kaikoura and a great way to learn lots about these placid creatures. Thanks Hero & Pegasus for a lovely day out !
