Welcome to Wildflower Ridge Llama Rentals
Located in the foothills of Colorado, Wildflower Ridge Llamas has
been raising and renting llamas since 1998. All our animals
are experienced packers, ready for your next trek, be it backpacking, camping, fishing, hunting
Originating in the Andes Mountains of South America, llamas have been
used as beasts of burden for over 4000 years. As such they've been called the "pickup
of the Andes".
This history makes llamas ideally suited for trekking in the high mountains of Colorado.
Sure-footed and self-sufficient, they make packing easy even for those with little
or no experience. They are large enough to carry a stout load (around 70 pounds),
but not so big as to be intimidating. I have had kids as young as 7 years old handle adult llamas with no trouble.
Wildflower Ridge Llamas leases trained pack llamas (and all the equipment) for those
wishing to create their own trips. We do not guide nor go out on the trail
with you. This affords you the freedom to choose your own destination. In addition
to leasing, we do school visits, scout trips, church activities (such as live nativity
scenes), and parades. If you just want to meet a llama, give us a shout to make
sure we're going to be around, and stop out. If you have other ideas, give us a
call and we'll see what works.
