Have you ever imagined what it would be like to take a llama for walk through the Peak District? OK, maybe not, but have a think about it for a minute.
Peak Llamas give you a rare opportunity to join a guided trek with a difference, taking your very own llama (by lead) for a stroll through the stunning landscapes of Chatsworth or around the scenic splendour of Ladybower Reservoir.
Peak Llamas are la-la about llamas, and whilst out trekking up hill and down dale you’ll learn all about the secrets of handling these cute creatures. Chill out in the company of these docile members of the camel family – it’s the perfect experience for a surprise birthday or anniversary present, for animal-loving young families or even for stag or hen party with a twist. Imagine recounting this story at the wedding!
The easy two-hour Chatsworth trek takes you through the classically-landscaped estate that is home to the Dukes of Devonshire, or treat yourself to the extended four-hour Chatsworth experience and have lunch.
Seasoned walkers can plump for the full-day Ladybower Experience, which includes a buffet picnic lunch. It’s a little more demanding, but it’s well worth the extra effort to enjoy panoramic views from secluded bridleways around the reservoir – plus a well-earned break to enjoy food from the Ladybower Inn en route.
Meet the Llamas:
Jelly-Roll – the follower of the group, bit of an aloof character, but great with kids.
Django – a handsome devil, but very camera shy!
Lena – leader of the pack.
George – a shy lad, but loves his food!
Satchmo – gorgeous guy. A real pin up of the llama world.
Bix – the baby of the bunch.
Bing – This poor lad hasn’t quite mastered llama language yet, and can often be heard humming White Christmas!
