Trekking with llamas is a family experience

Hike with llamas or alpacas

Family experiences in Vorarlberg: Hiking with llamas and alpacas in the snow is an experience that features stunning views and excitement for all ages.

Against the backdrop of beautiful scenery, Horst Kuster lives with his llamas in Bartholomäberg near Schruns in Montafon. Along with hikers, he and his llamas set out on 4-hour trekking tours in winter (every tuesday, 3 pm, 18 December 2018 to 16 April 2019). The llamas carry the baggage and guide excited hikers through the snow. Having arriving at the Panoramagasthof Kristberg the llamas are tied up outdoors – in the meantime the hikers can refresh themselves as they wish in the inn. Afterwards Adolf Zudrell provides information (in German) on the history of mining in the Montafon during a tour of the St. Agatha miners’ chapel, the oldest church in the Montafon.  After the excursion, the adventure group will head on back toward Bartholomäberg-Innerberg.

The Hotel Aurelio in Lech Zürs offers individualised Alpaca trekking tours and hikes throughout the year. Hotel manager Axel Pfefferkorn knows the holiday region, his alpacas and plenty of interesting information about these hairy mountain dwellers.

Birget Knecht from Röns provides therapeutic programmes centred around hiking with llamas and alpacas. She would be happy to organise an individualised tour.

Eva and Anton Vigl offer llama tours around the village of Langenegg in Bregenzerwald. First, the pair will answer all questions about the llamas before hitting the trail.

Heidi and Rudi Riedmann breed llamas in Dornbirn. Their llama mare Luna even holds the title of first Supreme Champion and European Champion for the first time in Austria. The Riedmann family offers individualised tours with their peaceful llamas.

Alpacas and Llamas are friendly and good-natured beings. They do not spit at people. They are intelligent, curious and affectionate.
