What's Llama Trekking? Llama Trekking is Hiking and Camping with our team of eco-friendly trail llamas, in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains and Rio Grande Gorege, near Taos and Santa Fe, New Mexico.

On the trail, our gentle surefooted llamas carry the gear, leaving you unburdened to experience the natural beauty and inspiring solitude of the New Mexico wilderness. Experienced Naturalist Guides share information about local ecology, natural history, regional folklore, and wilderness skills.

Backcountry Gourmet Meals are served on all of our New Mexico wilderness trips. All ages and fitness levels are welcome!

Wow, wow, wow. This was incredible fun. Stuart is an AMAZING guide. He was patient, funny, and talked about geology, history, plant like, animals, llamas, petroglyphs, native people's, art, and so much more. I did the "take a llama to lunch" trek and was with a family who had 3 girls (ages15, 12, 10). They said it beat the Grand... More

I am now officially a Llama fan. What beautiful, gentle creatures they are. Hats off to Stuart for starting his Llama Rescue. Thank you for sharing them with us, we truly loved our Llama Adventure. There are of course many wonderful ways to spend a day in Taos. Having visited the art galleries, museums, plaza, we were looking for something... More

This was by far one of the most fun excursions I've been on. My friends and I had a wonderful time. Stuart did a great job of interacting with all of the hikers, and showed a great deal of love for his animals. He was extremely knowledgable about the local flora and fauna, had a great sense of humor, and... More

---hiking with unbelievable views with clear blue skies, aspen leaves shimmering, and turning bright gold in early October in the Carson National Forest while catching our breath at over 10,000 feet--how exhilarating!

I received the llama trek as a birthday gift from my wife and didn't quite know what to expect. The trip exceeded my expectations spending a delightful day with KT and Apollo (our Llamas) and Stuart our guide who is a wealth of information about the area and its geology, wildlife and ecology. I would highly recommend it as an... More

Llama treking in the Carson National Forest proved to be the highlight of our seven day trip to New Mexico. Stuart's hospitality, and obvious dedication to this wilderness area, to the wonderful "rescued" llamas, and to educating participants, made our day really memorable. There were no packs to carry--the llamas did it all--and the food was delicious.

Excellent day trip! We went on 10-9-12 while the Aspen's were beautiful! Turned out it was just the two of us plus our guide Stuart!

We thoroughly enjoyed our trek with the llamas and our guide Stuart. The hike was so beautiful, lunch was awesome and Stuart knew a lot about the area. Next time we want to do an overnight hike.

One of the items on my bucket list was to go hiking with Llamas, so I signed up my hubby & I on our recent trip to New Mexico. My hubby was reluctant to go, but in the end, he even admitted he had a wonderful time. We had only a group of 4 of us, plus Stuart the guide... More

Well, our group had a beautiful trek and I can't say it better than all these other great reviews, except that, in addition to being a wonderful experience, Stuart's Wild Earth takes in neglected, unwanted llamas that people bought when it was a "fad" and later lost interest in, and brings them back to health, trains, loves and cares for...
