WALKING WITH ALPACAS
APRIL - SEPTEMBER
Come and meet our lovely Alpacas!
Meet the Team
Our alpacas have been escorting guests around the lovely woodland of Burnt Fen for 17 years so they know their stuff! We have around 40 alpacas at Burnt Fen and they are very much part of our family. They all have distinct personalities and we guarantee that when you meetthem you will fall in love with them!
Alpacas are shy but inquisitive and very much enjoy checking out our visitors. We have been breeding alpacas in Norfolk for over 20 years and have all colours, ages, shapes and sizes and they're all gorgeous!
Walk your own alpaca through our beautiful private woodland and meadows.
Firstly you are introduced to the alpacas and learn about how to behave around them as they can be quite shy at first. When everyone is happy (human and alpaca), we round up the boys who are trained for walks and you choose and catch your alpaca - always an interesting moment!
After the walk you are welcome to make yourself a cup of tea and feed the alpacas carrots that we provide for you.
What does it Cost
£30 per person aged 12 & over
£15 per person aged 7 to 11
Children: 7 to 16 - need to be accompanied by a paying adult.
Companion walker - without an alpaca
£15 per person aged 7 & over
We can only take one companion walker to one fully paid Alpaca walker to enable us to keep our groups small.
We have a minimum age requirement of 7 for children to visit the farm and walk our alpacas.
Please talk to me before booking to discuss if the walk will be appropriate for your child.
How Long Does it Take
The walk is just over a mile but please allow roughly 2 hours for your visit as the alpacas do love to snack as they walk!
We only take our alpacas walking once a day as we want the walk to be as fun for them as it is for you.
We go out at 10:30am, so you will need to arrive by 10:20am.
Please allow 2 hours for your visit.
Alpaca Amble - What to Wear
Alpaca walking is more of an amble than a forced march as they like to browse for snacks along the way and sometimes have a good scratch in the hedges. Sturdy shoes and long trousers are best as some of the more adventurous alpacas do like to venture off the path in search of interesting morsels!
At the end of your walk you are welcome to make yourself a hot drink and mingle with the alpacas, some will no doubt mosey on over for carrots which we provide. You are also welcome to visit my studio where I work with our fleeces to make handwoven and handknitted alpaca textiles.
The Great British Weather
Alpaca walking is of course an outdoors pursuit and living in this lovely country
the weather at times can be somewhat damp, so please dress accordingly and fingers crossed for sunshine! Sadly if the weather is really bad we may have to cancel the walk and will rearrange or refund as necessary.
Our walking season runs from April to September.
Please note we are a working farm and visits are by appointment only
