semerwater Alpaca Ambles


Semerwater Alpaca Ambles is a brand new venture in Raydaleside. There are 5 walking Alpacas varying in age. The Alpacas are rotated so the walks will consist of either 2 or 3 animals.

1 or 2 people can walk with an Alpaca. The walks are not suitable for children under the age of 8. Children between 8 and 16 must share an Alpaca with an adult.

Due to the hilly and uneven terrain walks are not suitable for people with walking/mobility issues.

The route does vary depending on the farming calender but each walk will include a snack time (for the Alpacas) and plenty of photo opportunities.

The time it takes to do the walk varies as everything is done at Alpaca pace.

For animal welfare/health and safety reasons the walks are weather dependant and may have to be cancelled/rearranged in poor weather or extreme heat.

Most importantly expect the unexpected and bring a camera and a good sense of humour.

Booking is essential.
