Llama Trek 2024

You “herd” right! Llama Trek is back at the Minnesota Zoo. Llama Trek, the special experience along the Northern Trail, allows guests to walk among free-roaming llamas.

May 25 – September 2

With minimal separation from the animals, guests will get a great opportunity to observe llamas lunching, llamas munching, llamas scratching and llamas napping. The Llama Trek experience is included with general Zoo admission. For additional fees, guests may also feed a llama or try walking a llama on our designated llama walk path. Don’t forget the camera! If you’re in love with llamas, make sure to check out our unique Backstage Pass experiences, too!
