ALPACA WALKING - TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Accessibility - This experience includes walking to, and going into a field that may be rough, bumpy or muddy. We cannot authorise wheelchairs, pushchairs or walking aids on the experience for these reasons.
All of our walks require a degree of physical fitness. You will have to be able to walk unaided for between 30 and 60 minutes. If you are unable to do this, we would advise that the walks would be unsuitable.
Children must be over 12 years old to walk an alpaca on their own, although children aged 8 to 12 may experience the walk providing each child is accompanied by an adult.
Clothing and footwear should be appropriate for the conditions; avoiding anything too bright or that might flap.
We are not an “open farm” and can only offer alpaca experiences by prior arrangement.
Experience Numbers - All experiences require a minimum number of attendees. Alpacas are herd animals so a minimum of 3 must be booked for each walk. It is possible to accommodate single or a pair of walkers but only in conjunction with another group. If this minimum number is not met, we reserve the right to reschedule your booking to the next available slot.
Alpacas are like us and won’t be happy to walk in bad weather. If we (or you) defer due to bad weather or unforeseen circumstances, we are happy to re-book at a mutually agreeable time thereafter.
