So where will your alpaca trek take you?

Nestled on the Western fringe of Dartmoor, my alpaca trek takes us directly from the farm, up a short bridleway and then straight onto a beautiful moorland area called Blackdown. This area is steeped in history with Gibbets Hill and glorious views of the church of St Michael de Rupe which stands proud on top of an extinct volcanic cone. My trek covers roughly 2 miles of a series of undulating tracks across grassland, over small leats and along stony sections of the West 27 cyclepath. We will follow one of 5 different circular routes on our trek - the one we walk on depends on the time of year, the weather, if the cows are out (we give them a wide berth) and peoples ability. Some tracks do go uphill for a short time but these are not steep and we walk so slowly with plenty of natural stops that you won't even notice! Alpaca pace really is like a gentle amble - alpacas don't like to be hurried! Our return route will reward you with breathtaking views of Great Links tor, Brat tor and Alms tor. Expect wide open spaces, big skies, colours everywhere and peace - this area is not easily found as there are no tourist signs pointing to it so we often get the area completely to ourselves. Wild Dartmoor ponies, Highland Cattle and various sheep breeds add colour and interest to the experience as well as the changing colours of the flora across the seasons - this is truly a magical place whatever month you choose (from swathes of yellow gorse to sparkling frosts and misty mornings!). This is why I alpaca trek ALL year round!
