Lama trekking is an extraordinary adventure, an exotic excursion in the middle of an impressive mountain landscape, a really special encounter. Several farms in South Tyrol have been offering lama trekking since many years – with great success.
The intelligent, sensitive and quiet animals originally come from South America, where they have always been used for transporting loads or kept in farms.
