Stafanie fell in love with these cute little animals a few years ago and has been dedicated to them ever since. Now she is the boss of a whole herd and would like to show you and let you experience what dealing with alpacas can do. The alpaca alone is not enough of a reason for you? Then we have 6 more for you!
One, because you're practicing patience...
Those who go hiking with alpacas should bring along a lot of time. The animals do not have any urgent appointments or deadlines - accordingly they are relaxed on the road. It can happen that you spend several minutes at a particularly lush meadow section and watch them eat. After the third rest at the latest, you'll get used to waiting for the fluffy fellows. And who knows, maybe you can even take some of their serenity into your everyday life.
2. because it exercises at least 135 muscles
Sure, hiking with an alpaca may not be the most strenuous activity and it will probably never be Olympic. But the number of muscles used certainly exceeds those needed for a session at the gym. After all, while a squat uses around 10 muscles, laughing uses 135! The appearance of the animals, the sounds they make and the way they explore their environment make their human companions grin all the time, which can only be turned off on the drive home.
4. because you go to the ends of the earth
Far away from houses, cars, noise, you are surrounded by hermetic peace, stress or haste seem to have disappeared from the face of the earth. You walk through meadows, fields, shady forests and here it is beautiful!
5. because you have to earn the trust
True, you don't need a 50-page instruction manual to take alpacas for a walk. Their calm, gentle disposition makes them pleasant companions. But be careful - alpacas are not only socially sensitive herd animals, but also flight animals. Jerky movements and shrill sounds can easily scare them away. Therefore, if you want to make true friends with alpacas, you must first earn their trust. And that is a good exercise for all of us.
6. because walking is about nothing
Chew, look, don't let yourself get rattled. It would never occur to an alpaca to want to achieve any stage goals - let alone break records. This likeable take-it-easy attitude increasingly transfers to his companion. At some point the leash becomes weightless, the feet detach themselves from gravity, the walk turns into a meditation. Even the most lazy walkers - young or old - can keep up. A perfect family, friends or after-work excursion.
