Don’t let young children, your age, trail distance, or difficult terrain keep you and your family from exploring the backcountry.
Llamas are are incredibly smart and easy to handle. They are the perfect low-impact, pack animal. They have soft padded, two-toed feet and their natural agility make them sure footed and easy on the terrain. They have no more impact on the trail than a fully loaded backpacker. Llamas will eat a variety of vegetation enjoying a sampling of leaves, grasses and plants. Their efficient digestive system yields droppings that look similar to elk scat.
Llamas are calm, gentle by nature, and great with kids. They make great hiking companions as they walk at a comfortable pace. They are alert, and very curious. They have a keen senses of smell, hearing, and sight and often alert us to the presence of other animals.
