Please decide which ticket type is right for you before clicking the book now button below. Click on the + to the right of each ticket type for more information. If you plan to bring children it is vital you read about our child and family tickets to get the right ticket for you.

2 Adults (or 16+) sharing 1 alpaca

1 child with 1 alpaca. Children aged 10 and older may walk their own alpaca but must be accompanied by an adult in the group (leading another alpaca – Ticket A). For less confident children we would recommend sharing an alpaca with an adult.

Ticket Type D - Children age 6+ - £35

1 Child and 1 adult with 1 alpaca. For children aged 6 plus or older children who are less confident. The alpaca will have a second lead rope attached so the child and adult are leading together.

Small children must be kept a safe distance from all alpacas in case of sudden movements.

What to expect on our treks 

Take our gorgeous alpacas and llama for a walk through the stunning woodlands of Rivelin Valley and the country lanes around Holly Hagg Community Farm, Sheffield. Our lovely gentle animals make this a truly enjoyable and memorable experience – but don’t just take our word for it, check out our customer reviews on TripAdvisor and Facebook.

We offer a range of tickets to suit animal lovers of all ages, but you must be moderately fit as you will be leading a large animal along rough paths with some steep and rocky bits that can be slippery and muddy in places. The whole experience takes about an hour and a half in total.

  • On arrival you’ll be welcomed with an introduction to the herd, shown how to hand feed them and given a safety briefing before being matched up with your fluffy trekking partner.
  • Our trained guides then take you through the beautiful scenery and woodlands surrounding our community farm.
  • The trek lasts about an hour with plenty of stops for feeding, taking in the scenery and photography.

Sturdy footwear is a must! 

Please wear sturdy shoes. The path is steep in places with uneven ground, loose stones and some mud.

We had a great time on our alpaca walk on Saturday! The volunteers are really knowledgeable and take really good care... of all the animals. I like that we got to choose which alpaca we walked (we chose Thomas) It was a really nice and scenic walk (definitely recommend supportive footwear) but it wasn't rushed, and there are breaks during the walk where you feed them and have photos taken. After the walk had finished there was the option to have a guided walk around the farm and to meet the other animals they have there which was really nice. I've already recommended it to a few people already and I would definitely do it again!read more

Went to this little gem for a little outing for our 6 year anniversary and I couldn’t recommend it more! it was... amazing, non profitable organisation run by volunteers, very nice to learn about the spot and how it became what it is today, we had Forrest he was very calm and gentle and great to handle, although all the alpacas were well behaved and very cute. we had a great time and will definitely be back! Hopefully this place stays open and continues to do what it does! thank you for the memoriesread more

Had a fabulous time down at Holly Hagg Community Farm this afternoon. Wonderful to get up close to the beautiful... Alpaca’s and feed them, Sanday and Teddy especially delightful. Wonderful knowledgable volunteers. We ventured round to the other animal, piglets, hens, chickens and rabbits.and there they had a Fleece Fest with the actual Alpaca yarn from Teddy and the other Alpacas, of course I bought some wonderful lady spinning the Alpaca yarn, and very helpful volunteers in there. There was food and drinks to be had too. All in all a fabulous few hours out. Thank you 🧶🧶read more

Santiago, who is known for his cheeky antics, was my friendly alpaca companion for today's walk. The Alpaca Trek, lead... by enthusiastic, entertaining and down-to-earth members of the Holly Hagg Community Farm, has been one of my favourite and unique experiences this year. It was a lovely route and I enjoyed having Santiago's company, despite him walking me round in circles when I got his food out and when he wanted to jump in the bushes and eat them at many points throughout the walk. These antics made the walk interesting and gave us something laugh about. It may have been the first time he had seen sheep too, which was adorable! Santiago allowed me to stroke his back, neck and head - he was so soft and cuddly!

The volunteers leading the trek were also very conscientious of social distancing guidelines and they followed those 'extra measures' to make sure everything was safe and healthy. I felt very comfortable with the set up and would definitely go again soon!
