Our recommendation in Brienz

A llama trekking is a very special experience

Hike through beautiful nature in the company of extraordinary animals. Have a llama carry your luggage while trekking.

Lama trekking in the beautiful Bernese Oberland. An experience for big and small, young and old.

Being on a llama trek means:

• to calm down

• to feel their peaceful and friendly nature

• Gain trust

• Approach and get involved sensitively

• to experience something

• to be fascinated by the animals

• to relax

• to have a new experience

Hiking through nature with llamas is a special experience, whereby the animals, rather than us, set the pace. Get involved, make contact with the lamas, slow down and…

Slowing down is the motto!

Llama trekking with us means escaping the hustle and bustle of everyday life, focusing on the essentials and consciously feeling all your senses again.

Would you like to escape from everyday life, spend time without your cell phone and spend time in nature?

Are you a family from the region or are you vacationing here? So you’ve come to the right place, because we have adventures for the whole family. A llama trekking with swimming fun and barbecue fun.

Visit us in the breathtaking mountains and with the most beautiful view in Brienz!
