What We Do

An overview of everything we offer at Artemis Alpacas, from experiences to events, to what we have coming up in the future. 

Walking with the Alpacas 

 

Walking with the alpacas is a one hour experience, where participants can experience the beauty of the local surroundings alongside our animals. 

Children must be accompanied by a full paying adult (18+).

Prices:     
 

  • 8-11 years - £15 each
     

  • 12+ - £25     
     

  • Family Ticket - £70 (two adults two children under age 12)
     

  • Spectators -  £10

Participants will be walking on uneven farm land which can be muddy at times - this experience is currently unsuitable for those who have trouble walking, using a wheelchair or for pushing a pushchair. 

What’s included: 

  • The walk will begin with a mandatory Health and Safety briefing to ensure everyone knows how to stay safe with their Alpaca during the experience. 

  • This will be followed by an introduction to Alpacas with information about where they originate, what their diet is like,  their fleece  and some other titbits most people don't know!

  • Then alpaca walkers will spend a few moments getting to know their alpaca, feeding some treats and getting ready to walk!

  • The walk will last around 45 minutes, however alpacas are quite curious animals and may want to explore their surroundings. There will be some extra time if required for taking photos and giving snacks.
     

What might you need to bring?

  • In order to remain safe (but mainly dry) you will need sturdy wellies or boots, warm clothes and a waterproof. No umbrellas please! Even if it is sunny outside, the ground may still be wet and slippy. 

  • In summer we advise to bring suncream for those hot sunny days. Make sure to bring water and stay hydrated. There will be an opportunity for you to purchase refreshments from the cafe during opening times.

  • Although we are not put off by rain, we reserve the right to reschedule bookings if we feel it is too extreme, or unsuitable for a walk. 

  • We're sorry but we cannot allow dogs to accompany us on our walk. 

     

Late arrivals

  • Please arrive at least 10 minutes before the start of your experience. If you are more than 10 minutes late you will not be able to take part as you will have missed our mandatory Health & Safety talk. Please allow plenty of time for your journey as we would be unable to allow latecomers to join the walking group.
     

Spectators
 

  • If someone wants to walk with a full paying adult or child they will need to purchase a ‘spectators’ ticket, which is £10.

Cancellations

  • Please give 72 hrs notice to cancel or reschedule your walk. Sadly under 72 hrs notice we will not be able to reschedule or refund your booking.
