A truly unique experience

This experience gives you the chance to walk in the stunning fells of Weardale with one of our beautiful boys. The alpacas love walking and take their time giving you time to enjoy the whole experience and fall in love with your alpaca. You will lead your very own alpaca with a guide for company 

We offer afternoon trekking times so please contact us for further details.

"My wife and I were given a voucher for xmas from our daughter and family.We would just like to say a very big thank you to Shayne and Iain for making our time with them and the gorgeous alpacas one of the best days we have ever had.It is situated in a beautiful area of Weardale and we would recommend anyone to go and experience these gorgeous animals as well as the hospitality we received." - Allan Gregson

"What can I say? We decided to take my dad on a trek for his birthday and we were overwhelmed with the whole experience. We all had the best day with the Alpacas. They are such lovely creatures with such great temperaments - perfect for anybody who is feeling a bit nervous prior to the walk.
Shayne and Iain are so friendly and welcoming, not to mention knowledgeable about their animals, knowing each alpaca individually. They were a font of knowledge for all things alpaca (and more). The afternoon tea was lovely and my personal favourite part was feeding the alpacas. I am now looking for an excuse to go back and play with the alpacas. I would recommend this experience to people of all ages.
The beautiful backdrop is a bonus - such a lovely setting." - Rachel Lodge

Would definitely recommend and would definitely go back.
Thank you Guys for an awesome day xxx" - Halley Richardson

"We would most definitely recommend a visit to Fellside Alpacas Shayne and Iain were absolutely brilliant they are very friendly and knowledgeable they went out of there way to make sure we had an afternoon to remember we had an experience this time rather than a trek we helped with weighing some of the cria and helped with the spit tests and basically just chilled and enjoyed the company of Shayne Iain and the Alpacas in beautiful surroundings we couldn't recommend them enough we have had a very special day cant wait for the next visit ." - Sharon Rutherford

"My husband and daughters bought me a voucher for my birthday. Shayne and Iain were so friendly and welcoming and told us all about the alpaca. We were really lucky - two alpaca babies were born during the night and we had an up close a personal moment with baby Montague. We had a fantastic walk and a lovely afternoon tea. I would love to go back. Hint hint Grant Bailey. Huge thank yous to my new alpaca friends, Benji, Caspian, Aramis, Fernando and little Samson (just leaning to trek). And I guess Shayne and Iain deserve thank yous too "- Kate Bailey

"What an amazing day honestly one of the best days I’ve ever had. I bought this experience for my friend for her birthday, the day didn’t disappoint from the moment we arrived we where made to feel very welcome by Ian & Shayne & of course by the Alpacas 🦙. The trek was lovely even on a soggy day the views where spectacular meeting the alpacas Cappuccino & Odon was the highlight, feeding the alpacas taking lots of amazing photos. Followed by a delicious afternoon tea with lots of hot tea to warm us up after our trek in front of the roaring fire an absolutely perfect Sunday afternoon. I cannot recommend Fellside Alpacas enough & myself & Haley have already said we will be back again in the spring. Thanks very much Ian & Shayne" - Louise Brown
