Alpaca/ llama hikes
Alpacas are very docile animals, with an affectionate nature that is classified as calming. A leisurely and meditative walk with our alpacas takes you along the farm circuit. Without stress and hectic, our animals can be guided by adults and children.
You can take part in a guided alpaca hike with us if you book in advance. The tour leads along the farm circuit and takes an easy 1 1/2 hours. During the alpaca walks there is a lot to observe and learn. The leisurely pace of the animals has a decelerating effect and you are forced to keep up with them
The alpaca hike starts from the Höflehner Nature and Wellness Hotel and leads you with our hiking guide first towards the enclosure, where the animals are already eagerly waiting for you
Continue along the farm round with the fluffy companions until you are back at the enclosure.

The difference between an alpaca and a llama
- The size
While llamas reach a shoulder height of up to 130 cm, alpacas usually have a shoulder height of up to 90 cm. Basically, llamas are also more robustly built and can weigh up to 140 kg.
- The shape of the face
Alpacas have a rather rounded and full face due to the wool, with a small nose and pointed ears. Llamas, on the other hand, have a more triangular head with a long nose and short fur around it. Llamas also have the longer ears.
- The wool
There is also a very big difference in the wool. Alpacas are mainly bred for their exclusive and beautiful wool. The coat is beautifully even, dense and of fine texture. Llamas are pack animals, so their fur is shaggier and coarser than that of alpacas.
