A Shamarra Alpaca Farm Tour is an unparalleled opportunity to get up close and personal with alpacas, learn about this loving animal, and create some memories with friends and family in a stunning location.

You’ll find your new furry friends here at Shamarra Alpacas, home to a herd of 170 alpacas in a beautiful harbour on the slopes of an extinct volcano and overlooked by craggy volcanic hills.

Shamarra Alpacas is only an hour’s drive from Christchurch, and a scenic 20 minute trip from the historic seaside village of Akaroa.

Our panoramic views of Akaroa harbour and the rolling hills and peaks of the surrounding valleys are breath-taking, and will make every one of your selfies with an alpaca post-worthy. This is no ordinary trip to an alpaca farm.

Itinerary

  • Your tour starts with a brief introduction & a quick safety briefing.
  • Next feel the incredible cashmere-like softness of superfine alpaca whilst simultaneously learning about its amazing qualities.
  • Then you will get to interact with the Alpacas, see our sustainable farming practices first hand, and learn about how we keep our adorable alpacas safe, healthy and happy.
  • Feed the mothers with their young by their side.
  • At the end of your tour, enjoy a beverage and one of our famous home-baked cookies.
  • You’ll then be able to browse the Shamarra Alpaca Shop. It’s a boutique collection of luxurious, natural and 100% dye-free alpaca knitwear made in New Zealand!
