Trekking with Alpacas

Alpacas la Foppa: the first alpaca farm in Valmalenco.

Alpacas are great trekking companions. They bring adults back to their childhood and children are crazy over them. The La Foppa farm aims at offering you a slow experience, in touch with nature. A hike is a wonderful way to discover the ancient pastures of the valley and their fascinating story.

The farm organizes treks of all levels of difficulty, both in summer and winter.

Treks lasting a couples of hours start at the farm and reach the pastures in Caspoggio. These are real trips into the story of this land, with the chance of tasting the typical products of the valley. Last but not least, Happy Paca: funny laboratories for children, short walks (30-40 minutes) in the woods surrounding the farm, that include group games and the creation of a craft, that children will bring home. Children are fascinated by nature and thanks to this experience, they'll live unforgettable emotions - amusing afternoons with alpacas, wool-working laboratories, an afternoon in the shoes of a farmer.

…like it used to be! an afternoon in the shoes of a farmer: discover the world of the farm, feed the animals, spin wool and take part in amusing laboratories. Children will be in touch with nature and discover the secrets of the rural world.

The trail of memories and labours
