Misty Meadows Alpacas, Quarry Ln, Maxey, Peterborough PE6 9HJ
East Anglia branch

Come and celebrate Biology Week 2019 with the RSB East Anglia branch for a Walking with Alpacas Adventure with Misty Meadows!


Set in a quiet idyllic lakeside setting in the little village of Maxey, Misty Meadows offer you the chance to meet their small herd of alpacas and get to know their distinctive personalities and gentle nature. Walk with your chosen alpaca in a safe, secure and scenic countryside location.

The walk is a 90 minute walk with the alpacas and a talk about them, with plenty of time for questions. Please take care that you are able to walk for this duration of time while leading an animal. It is more of a gentle stroll, the alpacas like to take things slowly and tend to dictate the pace, but the walk will be across fields and so the terrain is uneven in places.

There are two sessions available on 10th October, 10:30-12:00 and 15:00-16:30. If you would like to book the morning walk, please visit the other event page.

Please wear suitable clothing and footwear for walking in the countryside, such as walking boots or wellies. It is advisable to bring a waterproof in the event of a shower. In the event of heavy rain or other adverse conditions, the trip would have to be cancelled for the happiness and wellbeing of the alpacas.

Please note there are no toilets available on site.
