​You Can Now Take A Herd Of Adorable Alpacas For A Walk

​You Can Now Take A Herd Of Adorable Alpacas For A Walk

It doesn't matter whose birthday it is, it can be exhausting to continually come up with new present ideas for your friends and family each year.

You've gifted socks, board games, scarves and chocolates way too many times - but we bet you've never thought to give the gift of a walk with alpacas.

It might sound a little of piste, but let's face it - who doesn't love an alpaca?

Buyagift is currently offering a package for two adults and two children (under the age of 13) for £29, which includes entry to Lucky Tails Alpaca Farm in Atherstone, Warwickshire, as well as the alpaca walk around the scenic countryside. It's the perfect way to kick off spring.

The walks run from Wednesday-Sunday, from 11am-12:30pm or at 2pm-15:30pm.

Once there, you'll get up close and personal to the furry fellas as you take your very own friendly alpaca for a wander, leading him or her by a harness and learn all about the animal.

Naturally, you can get a selfie for the 'gram too. You might have bought the experience for your little one but you've got to rack up those likes somehow.

Once the walk is over, the fun doesn't need to end there. The farm is also home to giant bunnies, pygmy goats, chickens and ducks so you can make an afternoon of it.

It's had positive reviews too, people are raving about the experience online.

One said: "Amazing experience. Fantastic family day out; both of my partners children (boys aged 11 and eight) loved every minute of it and said they would love to go again. The lady that runs it is welcoming, informative and fun. Would highly recommend."

Another added: "I booked it as a 10th birthday present for my friend's son & my daughter. Both of the children and us adults alike had an amazing day with the alpacas & all the other animals. Have already booked a return visit to take my mum, daughter & boyfriend. Great day out for all ages".

One person even commented that her daughter got to hold a two week old baby goat whilst there. Cute!

It's not the only quirky animal experience you can do right now either.

White Post Farm in Nottingham offers goat yoga classes run by instructor Polly Wiltshire. Apparently baby goats love nothing more than to climb all over you whilst you're doing downward dogs - who knew?
