Smoky Mountain Llama Treks - Multiple Locations: Two- or Five-Hour Llama Trail Trek for Two from Smoky Mountain Llama Treks (Half Off)

Humans often relax by communing with nature: hiking through mountains, paddling down rivers, and eating berries indiscriminately. Get your fill of nature with this Groupon.

Choose Between Two Options

  • $55 for a two-hour Creek Hollow trail trek for two (a $110 value)
  • $75 for a five-hour Buckeye Ridge trail trek for two (a $150 value)

The Buckeye Ridge trail trek requires an additional $40 travel fee per group, which is not included in this Groupon.

During both of the above hikes, clean, fluffy pack llamas—which don't bite, kick, or spit—carry the backpacks and food, with one llama paired to and led by each hiker. One or two guides front every trek, and the groups take frequent stops to rest and rehydrate. Two-hour Creek Hollow trail treks wend over grassy fields and onto wooded trails. After hikers have mounted a steeper trail, they come up to see a swinging suspension bridge and a 60-foot waterfall. Hikers bring their own lunches on Buckeye Ridge trail treks, which last roughly five hours over flat, wooded terrain. If the group is feeling bold, they can challenge a very steep path to reach a peak with stunning views.

Smoky Mountain Llama Treks

As Steve Garrett hiked the Appalachian Trail in 2008, he felt called to leave the corporate life he led near Grand Rapids, Michigan, and move to the mountains with his family. His wife, Johnna, supported his dream—so they and their children moved to Tennessee to run Smoky Mountain Llama Treks.

Their fluffy, pettable llamas don't spit, kick, or run off—rather, the gentle pack animals carry loads for hikers on treks through fields and woods. Though the llamas can't be ridden, their ability to carry food and gear makes it easier for hikers to enjoy mountain views and cartwheel down the trails. In addition to leading groups on hikes, the staff can also coordinate adventures including zipline tours through the forest canopy, rafting, and helicopter tours.

Went with my friend Jessica on our vacation. It's about a 45 minute drive from gatlinburg but worth the drive for sure. We had an incredible time and Steve is a great host! Would love to go next year on our annual vacation.
