What should we bring?
Please remember that this is a farm, the ground can be damp and uneven, so sensible footwear is required (wellies or sturdy boots), long trousers are advisable, waterproofs or sunscreen (depending on the weather – sometimes both!) and don’t forget your camera!
Children are most welcome at Senwick Alpaca trekking, in fact alpacas have a real connection with wee ones and it is a pleasure to see the joy that they bring to even the smallest child! It is worth taking into account that due to the nature of being up close to various animals children need to be calm and respectful toward our alpaca friends. Little legs will need to be capable of walking the distance, juggling a child that needs to be carried and an alpaca can be tricky (trust me we’ve tried!!).We trust the judgement of parents as to whether this activity is suitable for their children having taken this information into account.
Children under 8 are free to accompany a paying adult on a trek and to share the lead rein (preferably one child per adult). Alternatively look out for details of Tiny Trekkers events, advertised on our facebook page, designed for children 8 and under.
Children and young adults 8-16yrs old must be accompanied by at least one trekking (and responsible!) adult who is in charge of them!
