What will you do?
We will welcome you with our llamas, majestic and fluffy. Together, we will load the equipment onto our llamas and tell you what the Llama Pack project is all about. Once ready, we will begin a 40-minute hike uphill, at a slow pace, where we will enjoy the great view that will open up before our eyes. There, the llamas will be our guides, and they will take us to a quiet place where we will prepare and enjoy a picnic with local supplies, and then return to base camp.
