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!

Fun experience

We really enjoyed this experience. The alpacas are adorable! The staff here were lovely and knowledgeable too. The farm is also situated at a gorgeous location, with an incredible view. Would recommend to locals (like us) or visitors from out of town too!

An experience close to the nature

The atmosphere was friendly and warm. We were guided into a shed briefly to learn some basic knowledge of alpacas. The staff showed us the ‘Dos’ & ‘Don’ts’ when taking photos and touching the alpacas. Had some really great time with the cute animals and they all had fun personalities! While we visited the female alpacas we had the chance to feed and bribe them for cute pictures as well! The farm was spacious and I felt safe and at ease! Highly recommended!
