Llamas in Lienz
Originally from South America, at first glance, it is rather unusual to find llamas in Austria. The llamas however feel very much at home in the mountain surroundings which are very similar to their native America. Through their friendly character llamas make excellent company for humans. As well as that they are used to carry all your luggage and bags. Children will also have fun with the llamas. It’s not about vast mileage or climbing to great heights, instead it’s about enjoying the mountain scenery and the pure nature. With cool shimmering mountain lakes, dramatic mountain peaks, flowering alpine meadows you can relax your mind and your soul…
Give your luggage away
Enjoy complete freedom of movement, the quietness and the nature. Your llama will carry your bags for you. Half day and full day tours will typically take place in the surrounding areas including the Lienzer Dolomites and the Hochschober group. Your guide and host, Karl Peter Schneeberger in Oberlienz will suggest a suitable tour as well as matching you up with a suitable llama.
Contrary to what many people might think, guests do not ride on the llamas. Guests will each have a llama to lead and accompany them on a hike as well as carrying their bags and luggage for them.
You can choose a llama trekking tour from just a few hours to a day or even several days and more – however your holiday plans fit!
