To understand why llama trekking is so popular, you simply have to try it for yourself. Where? Here with us at the foot of the Wilder Kaiser.
The starting point for this fun walk, which is especially popular with children, is the rustic Koglhof. The Koglhof is around a 45-minute walk away from Ellmau but can also be reached by car. Locals call it the “llama farm”, and “Mamma Llama” Ruth and her family give a home to over 30 llamas.
The llama treks begin directly at the farm. Anyone can lead a llama, but children must be accompanied by an adult. The treks take you through the wildly romantic mountain scenery of the Wilder Kaiser area. They usually take place in the afternoons (at 2 p.m.) and last around two hours. Make sure you’re wearing good hiking shoes and clothing that’s appropriate for the weather conditions.
You can register for llama trekking directly at our hotel on your family vacation in Austria until 10 a.m. on the day of the tour – but it’s best to book early to make sure you definitely get a place.
