My family of 4 had a GREAT time on our morning half day llama trek. Our guide was Stephanie and she was SUPER nice, funny, and friendly. She definitely made this trip extra special for us! The llamas were all so friendly and very safe! They definitely made this hike special! We stopped by a waterfall and had a nice sandwich lunch there. Definitely recommend this trip to anyone!

This trip was my teenage daughter’s idea. I was unsure about it, but it surpassed my expectations. Our guide Stephanie was great. We hiked through some gorgeous forest land. We had a nice lunch (provided) at a waterfall. We were able to swim in the freezing cold water. Everything was awesome. Highly recommended activity!

Our family of 4 (two boys are 18 and 20) did the full day llama trek with Jace. When we arrived, Jace had the llamas in the trailer all ready to go. We got into the large SUV and rode with Jace up the mountain. It's about a 45 minute drive on a rather bumpy road, but Jace is such a great conversationalist, you really don't notice! After arriving at the top of the trail, Jace got the llamas out of the trailer and told us we could decide who walked with which llama. Our llamas were Nationwide, Raffi, Jingles, and Popeye, each of whom had their own personality, and each one was just delightful. The llamas were wonderful company on the trail. They walk behind you and crane their neck to the side to be able to see over your shoulder, which makes for a hilarious picture from the back. They like to snack along the trail and need a fairly frequent number of breaks, but this works out fine because it allows the hikers to rest and/or get a drink, as well. The scenery on the full day trail (the Napa Lookout trail) was jaw dropping. We hiked along a ridge with miles of gorgeous scenery out in front of us, as well as many wildflowers. When the llamas needed a break, we just enjoyed the scenery. We stopped for lunch, and Jace got out some folding chairs for us. (The llamas carry all of the gear in their saddlebags). The lunches he had prepared for us were delicious. Jace was so knowledgable about the area and the llamas, and really enjoyed sharing his knowledge with us. Since it was just us and our guide, he allowed us to decide how far we would go. I believe we hiked about 7 miles round trip (it's an out and back trail). We really miss the llamas, and would encourage anyone considering this activity to go for it! You'll have so much fun.

We did the wine and cheese trek with Jace. It was a great experience. The llamas really have their own personalities unlike any other animals I have met. They make these funny humming noises when they are anxious or excited. The animals are very well behaved- my 7 year old had no issues walking hers. We took a nice walk through the woods and then Jace took out a folding table and chairs where we had snacks and wine. There were drinks for the kids too. We hung out and had a nice chat and got to spend some time with the llamas. The only thing that was annoying was the bugs - they were a bit brutal - but Jace had bug spray that kept them at bay for a bit. I would recommend wearing long clothing and lots of bug spray. It’s one of those experiences you just have to do once! The ride from Whitefish took about 1.5 hours but the scenery was so beautiful we didn’t mind. Jace was very knowledgeable about the animals and the area and great with the kids. Definitely recommend!

Do not even think twice about doing this. I have swam with sharks in Australia I have played with the monkeys down in Brazil this was by far one of the coolest things I've ever done. The views are jaw-dropping the llamas are so well taken care of the guide ours was Dan was so knowledgeable so friendly and so kind it was refreshing. Cannot say enough good things
