Mount Edgcumbe Alpaca Trekking Experience

Alpaca Trekking activity in Cornwall

Here at Mount Edgcumbe we aim to provide new and exciting adventures for people to explore this wonderful place. This unforgettable Alpaca Trekking Experience allows you to explore Mount Edgcumbe with the companionship of our furry friends.

The walks are family friendly and limited to two people for each alpaca.  Children are welcome as long as they are accompanied by an adult at all times*. Our groups are no larger than 8 people per experience.

The experience encompasses meeting the alpaca and getting to know about their routines with a little housekeeping if you’re up for the challenge!  Then prepare the alpaca for their walk before heading off for your adventure.

Remember to bring some wellies and waterproof clothing, where we’re going there are no roads!

Our Alpaca Walking Experience lasts approximately two hours. After visiting the alpacas, why not take some time to explore the rest of the 865 acre park with stunning formal gardens, coastal views and park land. Perhaps pop into the shops or relax in one of our lovely cafes for a delicious treat? There’s no shortage of things to enjoy here at Mount Edgcumbe!

Why not enhance your experience by adding a little treat to your booking choosing from a delicious cream tea or a winter warming soup and crusty bread in the Farriers Cafe after you have finished your Alpaca Experience. A perfect way to round off your adventure.

NOTE – children (between 8 and 16 years old) can only be booked on the experience if an adult is booked with them to accompany them on a one to one basis. 

*Please read our terms and conditions before booking your Alpaca Trekking Experience to avoid disappointment.

Meet the Alpacas

Alpaca Trekking

Courtland, known affectionately as Landy, is the oldest of this herd born in 2016.  He has white fleece (believe it or not!) under all the mud and dust which he just loves rolling in

Illustrious, shortened to Lusty, is the only suri in the herd.  He has long pale brown locks and just like Landy, he loves to roll around in the dust.  His birthday is 20th July (2018)
