you for your interest in Wild Earth Llama Adventures, Taos, New Mexico's
oldest and most experienced llama trekking outfitter. Our mission is
to make wilderness experiences available to people of all ages and backgrounds;

operate under permits issued by the Carson and Santa Fe National Forests,
as well as the Taos and Albuquerque offices of the BLM. Most of our
treks take place in the remote regions of the Wheeler Peak, Columbine-Hondo,
Latir Peak Wilderness Areas, and Rio Grande Gorge/Wild and Scenic Rivers
Recreation Area. We know these areas intimately, enabling us to create
custom wilderness experiences for any age or fitness level. We
specifically choose trails and base camp locations that are seldom visited,
to provide you with a true wilderness experience. We keep our group
sizes small, in
order to ensure a high quality adventure for all.
years of experience enable us to set up comfortable, first
class base camps for our guests. Our extensive knowledge of local ecology,
natural/regional history, and wilderness living skills, makes our llama
trekking adventures highly educational; and sets Wild Earth apart as the llama trekking outfitter and wilderness
guide service in northern New Mexico.
Earth guides are trained and certified in wilderness medicine, CPR,
emergency rescue and evacuation. Our level of preparedness, keen instincts, intimate
understanding of local weather patterns, and pro-active attitude make
our treks safe and keep our clients warm, dry, and enjoying themselves,
even in the most extreme conditions. Our
safety record is impeccable, and we are proud to say that we have never
had a major injury in all our years as a wilderness outfitter.
"Take Only Pictures, Leave Only Footprints"
Every year, more and more people
are getting out into the backcountry. While this is a positive trend,
as it is a reflection of a need to reconnect with the earth, it
is also creating a greater impact on wilderness and public lands
in general. We are only visitors in the wilderness, and must act
responsibly in order to preserve the land for its inhabitants and
any future visitors. We practice least impact camping, leaving little
or no trace of our presence.
wilderness is a place where we go to remind ourselves that we are a part of
a much greater community. It is a symbol of that in us which is
wild and free. By spending time living close to the land, with fewer
distractions, we begin to feel the rhythms and cycles of the planet.
It is our hope that sharing wilderness experiences with people will
help foster a sense of stewardship and lead to a safer and healthier
world for our children's grandchildren.
