Alpaca Trekking

Morning or Afternoon

Alpaca Trekking at Cholderton Rare Breeds Farm near Salisbury, Wiltshire

Book an alpaca walk with us and experience the beautiful calmness (and lots of laughter!) of the Alpacas and our stunning vineyards, farmland, woodlands and countryside as you walk them around our Salisbury farm and vines, just minutes from Stonehenge!

The whole experience lasts approximately 1 hour, you will arrive and check in at reception where you will be warmly greeted and taken to one of our friendly Alpaca handlers. Here, you will be given a short health and safety briefing and you will also have the opportunity to learn more about these amazing animals and where they come from. You will also be able to ask any questions you may have about the animals or the experience. Once you have been partnered with your new alpaca chum your walk will begin. Don’t forget to get your Alpaca Selfie and tag us in all your photos!

This is the perfect gift for all animal lovers, so why not treat a loved one, or treat yourself!

Booking in advance is essential, so please call us prior to booking online, as we require at least 72 hours notice in order to ensure we can accommodate you and our furry friends.
