Are Alpaca Picnics just for adults?
Alpaca Picnics are for all ages and kids love our picnics! We will work with you to theme the picnic around the interests of your little one.

How much does an Alpaca Picnic cost?
Our Signature Picnic for two guests starts at $169 plus tax. However, the price will vary based on the number of guests and any add-on options you select (upgraded charchurtire board, decor or picnic time).
