Our Guide Team and Llamas meet you at the trailhead and accompany you through the wilderness. They provide navigation, carry gear, build and break camp and provide home cooking, local lore and ideas for fun in the wilderness. You can expect the llamas to carry everything to make this possible as well up about 20 lbs of your personal gear. Llama llessons on Our Youtube Channel:

You contribute by bringing your personal items, a sleeping bag and a willingness to hike a bit. Depending on your appetite for adventure, you can expect to hike two or more hours a day and have plenty of time for relaxation in the Mountains.. Many llama trekkers have past background in backpacking but, for various reasons, desire assistance in carrying part or all of the load to the wilderness. Other clients include those new to backcountry trips. We have led trips containing children as young as three years old. Llamas can also assist the differently abled to access remote country and live well there.
Llamas allow us to carry the 'essential luxury' of good food and fresh meals. Past client favorites include: Blueberry pancakes and chedder eggs, Thai Peanut chicken with Coconut sauce and Chicken Tostadas with salsa, crisp lettuce and fresh avocado. With coffee and wine.
Begin, or better yet follow your trip with us with a night at a Historic National Lodge. We'd be happy to help you arrange this.
Most of our trips are within a three hour drive from Seattle Washington. As Seattle locals, we'd be happy to provide guidance if you would like us to connect you with urban adventures too.
