Saturday July 6th will be the last llama trek at Applewood. In the furture, we will include an up close and person visit with the llamas with a three or more night stay at our COTTAGE. B&B will no longer be available to new guests.
Llama trekking of one hour, give or take, on Virginia mountain hiking trails leave from the Inn about 10 am. Each room that wishes may lead one of the Inn's llamas. They are fascinating creatures with great curiosity and sense of adventure. With advanced warning, our furry friends are willing to carry your bird/wildflower book, and binoculars. In the spring, special wildflower treks are available all of April observing and identifying the myriads of wildflowers found around the Inn. Bird watching treks in May and June are also popular. Available on Saturday mornings through July 6th, 2019 only. Afterwards only on special occasions, although a visit with the llamas can always be scheduled.
We have 3 trekking llamas (several are retired), Stryker, Spunky and Jonas.
Summer treks are possible if the weather is not too hot, although we usually start at 9:30 in order to beat the heat.
In the fall, September through November, trekkers get to view the spectacular fall vistas. In the winter, weather permitting, they get to see the mountains at their most dramatic, with a coating of light snow in the crystal clear mountain air while sipping on the hot chocolate or cider carried by the llamas. Treks are usually made on Saturday mornings, and they are suitable for all ages, six and up. We also offer Long Weekend Packages that include a basic llama trek & Sunday dinner.
