Go Llama Hiking Through The Forest On This Unforgettable Wisconsin Adventure
I, for one, had never thought to employ a llama to help carry the load when I’m out hiking or camping, but now that I know about Midwest Llama Packing, I’m not sure I want to hike any other way. These adorable, family-friendly animals first came to Brownderosa Farm in Sparta as protection for the sheep flock. But the owners fell in love and found that llamas make a great companion for a hike around their grounds or at the nearby Kickapoo Valley Reserve. Now you can join in and experience all kinds of adventures with a pack llama as a companion.
Llamas have padded feet similar to a dog, which lets them easily traverse steep and rocky paths. Hiking or overnighting with llamas is said to be more environmentally friendly because their feet don't disturb the land like horse hooves do and their narrower body doesn't disturb as wide a path.
At Midwest Pack Llamas, you can sign up for a two hour, half day or full day hike and the prices are very reasonable. The two hour hike runs about $25. A half-day hike includes a meal and is $50. The full day hike, including two meals, is just $75. Contact them for details on more involved or overnight treks.
Hikes can take place at Brownderosa, the owners farm, or at Kickapoo Valley Reserve and again, those details can be worked out when you book a hike.
Llamas are friendly and versatile animals and letting them carry the load can make hiking a bit more accessible to folks that might not otherwise participate.
This are of the state is truly gorgeous, with rolling hills that weren't disturbed by the last glaciation. The Driftless area is truly different from anywhere else in the state.
This is truly a unique and amazing way to get out, hike and experience the beauty that Wisconsin has to offer. From family trips to couples hikes, this awesome location provides a really cool, one-of-a-kind hiking experience.
The llamas are trained and certified and the company is fully insured.
You won't be able to stop talking about this amazing llama hiking experience and showing the pictures to all of your friends.
Llamas are gorgeous, friendly animals that have been used across the world for just this kind of work. You won't regret a trip out to Sparta to meet the docile, working llamas of Brownderosa.
Start planning your summer trip with the experience of a lifetime. Your family will never forget this amazing opportunity.
