There will always be a short safety talk at the beginning of each experience, please take note of the information provided in the briefing & during the walk. A risk assessment has been undertaken for the Alpaca Walking Experience & is available to download here
Adults & teenagers all welcome. (No children under 10 years). Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. 10, 11 & 12 year olds are welcome to come along and share leading an Alpaca with an adult helper. (2 Lead ropes) at extra cost.
We remind families that although Alpacas are gentle, friendly, quirky creatures, they can be unpredictable & sensitive. Like all animals if startled they can bolt forward as they are flight animals like sheep or horses so please follow the safety advise given. We (Lindway Springs Alpacas) cannot accept responsibility for accidents or injuries that may occur on our farm. Accidents can happen, although very rare but its important to stay calm around the Alpacas.
The Walking Experience's are supervised throughout your visit by a suitable trained person. Please stay with the group. Alpacas are herd animals and like to be together.
Our walks are through our farmland, fields, farm yards and tracks, these can be wet, muddy, rough terrain, bumpy and loose/uneven/slippery ground and because of this we cannot offer our experience to wheelchair users, pushchairs or people who require walking aids. The walks are approximately 40 minutes long.
Please wear "closed toe" sturdy shoes/trainers although, wellington boots or walking boots are advised. Dress for the changing weather and we cannot be held responsible for any damages to shoes or clothing.
The experience maybe weather dependant, if we cancel the walk, we will offer an alternative date, suitable for you and ourselves. (No refunds will be issued)
