Llama Trekking in Nidderdale

Llama trekking. I didn't even know that llama trekking was a thing until recently. I went llama trekking for my mam's birthday back in May and I would honestly recommend it to anyone. (The first two pictured are alpacas but are still cute.)

The llamas are based in Nidderdale, North Yorkshire and were easy to find as they emailed us directions. (We also did a practice run). You need to book in advance and can choose a short or longer walk; our walk was 1.5 miles which took about 2 hours. There were 3 of us in our group, we all got a llama each, but another couple got a llama between them. This may have been a wise decision as my llama was quite strong!

When we arrived we went in to where the llamas are kept and, after introductions, we were each assigned a llama based on our personalities. My llama was called Gus. I think we were a good match as he wasn't as boisterous as the others, although he did try and eat everything in sight!

During the trek we stopped for photos but I managed to take some whilst we were walking round. Gus even posed for a selfie with me! Overall, it was a fantastic day out which made me love llamas even more. I will definitely be going back in the future.
