An Alpaca Affair

Gutsy Gus, Happy Herb, Incredible i-Pod, and Magical Monga are waiting to meet you. Situated in the paddocks at Ruapehu Country Lodge, our chaps chew their way through their day. Why not come and put some vim and vigour in to their lives. Walk them around the paddocks, guide them around the garden, nuzzle their necks and fill your insta feed with pics!!




Your time with the boys starts with a brief introduction to them and their quirky habits. You will be coming into close contact with your new found friends so we'll cover off with a quick safety briefing before we get started.


  • We will then pop a halter on your favourite guy, and then help you lead him around and through our paddocks.  When you are comfortable with your alpaca, you can take him on an adventure around the lovely gardens that surround our Lodge.
  • Back in the grazing paddock, you can treat him to a cup of nuts. This provides some amazing close up alpaca contact and great photos.
  • Get your #alpacasofinsta shot in our gorgeous paddock frame.
