A great interactive experience with the llamas. The owner was knowledgeable and very friendly. Got to brush the llamas too. Being a local to the TN area I will definitely be going back. Recommend the experience to see llamas up close.

Steve was very knowledgeable and informative with sharing information about the llamas and the alpaca. We did take treats for them and they all enjoyed the oatmeal cookies and graham crackers. The animals were all gentle with eating out of our hands. We also had a chance to groom them and it was interesting to feel the change in how soft their fur becomes when brushed. It's definitely a hidden treasure worth checking out.

What You'll Get


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)<p>

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.

About 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.
