There are about twenty llamas living on the farm, including three that were born recently and two slightly bolshy alpacas. Lamir is the leader, even if Zlatan, his second in command, has been trying in vain to take his place for some time. The males are best suited to the hikes as they are more docile and have more stamina. Monte Comino has three routes of varying levels of difficulty: the initiation for small children and people who aren’t used to hiking, the half-day mountain tour and a trek to the summit of the mountain (one-day hike). The llamas love a snack and they can't resist a nibble of their favourite flowers or bush. It is their uniqueness that makes a llama-assisted hike so appealing on an emotional level.
It’s hard to say goodbye to the llamas, especially for young children, but the memory of their fortitude walking beside us lasts a lifetime. And if you would like a more tangible souvenir, you can buy a woollen quilt to remind you throughout the winter of your wonderful hike and the scent of wild flowers.
