The world’s weirdest and most wonderful wildlife encounters
Trek with llamas, Surrey
The Surrey Hills provide an unlikely setting for hiking in the company of nine camelids. One of the friendly, curious animals is assigned per pair of walkers, accompanying them through woodland, rolling fields and open commons to a picnic spot with a view of the South Downs. New for this year, the refurbished Merry Harriers pub in Hambledon is offering overnight stays that include a half-day llama trek, from £320 per couple with breakfast, lunch and dinner.
