In this alpaca experience for a family of four, which is a perfect gift for any animal lover, you will discover the sheer joy of spending time with the characterful alpacas at West Yorkshire Alpacas. You will have plenty of time to get to know them and interact with them in this peaceful farm location not far from Hebden Bridge.
At the farm there are five gorgeous alpacas: Freddy, Pierre, Roman, Wigbert and Emperor, who are all extremely cute and lovable and will leave you smiling long after the experience has finished.
On the experience you will have two alpacas per family and will learn about their quirks, habits and caring for alpacas. After a meet and greet at the shelter, you will get them ready, put a head collar on and hopefully (if the alpacas are willing!) take them for a short walk.
You’ll get to touch their incredibly soft wool and feed them from your hand if you wish. And afterwards there is always time to get that all important group photo with your alpacas!
The location, high up in the hills of the Calder valley, is wild, green and quiet with lovely views. Experience the beauty of Yorkshire paired with the joy of meeting these wonderful creatures.

West Yorkshire Alpacas run their experience from their farm high in the Calder Valley. Hannah who runs the experience grew up as part of a shepherding family in the Peak District where her parents ran similar experiences. Now, she has adopted the alpacas to carry it on in her new home in West Yorkshire.
