Alpaca Farm Tour
All year round at Surico
A farm experience tailored to suit you.
You will see alpacas in a farming situation, see how friendly they are to handle and how gentle they are around children.
You can walk an alpaca on a lead. The Alpaca Farm Tour offers a display of products made from the alpacas fleece and an explanation introducing you to alpacas and explaining their environmental sustainability.
The farm walk reveals amazing views from the northern aspect of Lake Rotorua.
An alpaca visit at Surico Alpaca offers you an experience to touch alpacas and interact in a natural setting. We can spend time as you wish at each activity.

To celebrate the beautiful range of colours of alpaca, the Rotorua show has a coloured schedule, meaning browns are judged against browns and blacks against blacks etc. Rotorua was the first show in NZ to arrange the schedule this way and enjoys the support the breeders from accross the North Island who come to show their alpaca or just visit to see how other breeders are getting on.
