Guided llama trekking of about two hours on Virginia mountain hiking trails leave from the Inn about 10 am. Each guest who wishes may lead one of the Inn's llamas. They are fascinating creatures with great curiosity and sense of adventure. With advanced warning, our furry friends are willing to carry your lunch, bird/wildflower book, and binoculars. In the spring, special wildflower treks are available from April through May, observing and identifying the myriads of wildflowers found around the Inn. Bird watching treks in May and June are also popular.

                                  Spring Trek along Buffalo Creek

Of our 6 trekking llamas (three are retired), four are from  Shangrala  Llamas in Calloway, Virginia. 

Summer treks are possible if the weather is not too hot, although we usually start at 9:30 in order to beat the heat.

In the fall, September through November, trekkers get to view the spectacular fall vistas. In the winter, weather permitting, they get to see the mountains at their most dramatic, with a coating of light snow in the crystal clear mountain air while sipping on the hot chocolate or cider carried by the llamas. Treks are usually made on Saturday, Monday, or Thursday mornings, and they are suitable for all ages, six and up. We also offer Long Weekend Packages that include a basic llama trek & Sunday dinner, lunch extra.
