Welcome to Snowdonia Alpacas.
We are based in the stunning Snowdonia National Park, surrounded by mountains and woodland and wide open spaces, where the only noises are those of the natural world.
We are passionate about our animals here, our alpacas are amazing animals, inquisitive, shy, both timid and bold, lively but calm, they all have individual personalities and temperaments – everyone is different. Add to that their luxurious fleece, and big brown eyes, it’s hard not to fall in love, they are truly fascinating to be with!
Our walks consist of an introductory talk, where we will introduce you to the alpacas, show you how to halter and handle them kindly and safely, then while you and your alpaca are getting acquainted we will tell you about them. Once everyone has made friends we will start a leisurely walk around our farm, where your guide will continue to expand on alpaca facts, along with information of the local area. Snowdonia is very peaceful, and our farm contains a variety of landscapes, from natural bog, ancient oak woodlands, and traditional grazing land – so there is ample opportunity on the walk to also see many bird and insect species, along with our farm animals, as we have free range pedigree pigs, pedigree Dexter cattle, Rheas, pheasants, ducks and various sheep breeds – all who are very friendly and love attention!
You should expect your time with us to last up to 2-3 hours, with the walk taking around 40 minutes. There are some hills involved – but we won’t be going very fast, as we walk at the alpacas pace, and will stop for photo moments!
After your walk we will return the alpacas back to their corral and give them a treat, then go and meet the rest of the herd to hand feed.
