Who says you need to travel to South America to get up close and personal with an alpaca? Well, you don’t. In fact, you can trek with alpacas right in the heart of Wicklow.
Company K2 Alpacas has launched an immersive new trek with the popular animals, allowing participants to learn all about the animals. You’ll also get to pet and walk with them.
During the 2-hour leisurely trek, you’ll have plenty of time to spend with your new furry friend and yes, that includes snapping the odd selfie.
The best part? At the end of the trek, you will be treated to a cool glass of bubbling Prosecco, because really, that’s the only thing that could improve the overall alpaca experience.
K2 Alpacas describes the trek on their website, saying: “Alpacas are simply delightful, friendly and curious animals, each with its own personality, get up close to these beautiful animals, hear them hum to each other, feel how soft their fleece is and look into their big brown eyes. See how relaxing they can be to be around.”
They added: “Alpaca walking is a great fun activity the whole family can enjoy, one thing we can guarantee it that it will put a smile on your face. Trekking with alpacas is simply the most unique activity you are likely to experience and certainly one of the most memorable.
The adorable and informative alpaca experience is priced at €25. For more information and to book, visit k2alpacas.ie.
