When visiting and exploring all of what Derbyshire has to offer, you may come across some weird and wacky activities that shouldn’t be overlooked. The Peak District is host to an incredible range of adventures for people of all ages, which is why the national park has over 13 million visitors every year, with many making it their annual holiday destination.
From Derbyshire all the way up to Yorkshire, the beauty of the Peak District stretches far and wide across the UK. You can discover the aircraft remains of over 150 plane wrecks, explore the Longnor mysterious mermaid pools and even visit ancient ‘Druid Caves’ located in the lovely village of Birchover. There are so many interesting ventures you can take part in when visiting the Peak District, and even Rustic Retreats has one to offer.
Meet our alpacas and even take one for a walk when visiting our lovely holiday destination, with the original activity of alpaca walking.
What is Alpaca Walking?
Alpaca walking is the experience of leading an alpaca across the rolling hills of the Peak District, taking in the views whilst learning about the animals. This activity can be enjoyed by children, teenagers and adults alike and is the ideal way to relax in the stunning Derbyshire countryside.
This experience often takes place in sunny weather, as alpacas aren’t fans of the rain, and you’ll be given a demonstration before the activity commences. Health and safety guidelines will be addressed, so you must ensure you are up to the challenge. This experience includes an element of physical activity and may be difficult for some. Please keep this in mind before you book alpaca walking.
If you’re an animal lover or if you want to try something new, you’ll thoroughly enjoy this original experience. Meet our alpacas and book your session today with Rustic Retreats.
