Sport comes in many guises, and sometimes it's fun to try something a little unusual. So to brighten up a dull Finnish November we bring you a fusion of domestic sport and international animal life... alpaca agility!

Yes, alpaca agility is a thing. They're not just funny looking suppliers of wool for socks. These guys can jump, and they enjoy it!

We'll visit them at their home on the alpaca ranch where we'll learn all about them, be introduced to our alpaca partners, take a walk to get to know each other and then we'll tackle the agility course in pairs - one human, one alpaca. And since this is the sports group we'll be awarding points and perhaps a small prize for the winner...

After our session we can enjoy coffee/tea and cake in the cafe and check out various alpaca related products in the ranch's small store.

We'll meet at Protected content

This is an outdoor event so please wear appropriate clothing for the weather! The agility area is mostly sandy, but we do recommend boots especially in the case of heavy rain.

We need ten attendees for this event to go ahead, and to ensure commitment this time we will be asking for advance payment. Bank details will be sent to those who register, and only those who have registered and paid in advance will be considered officially signed up. Payments will be returned should the event be cancelled or the required number of attendees is not reached. There will however be no refunds for non-attendance.

It's not every day that you get to take an alpaca over an obstacle course, so if this sounds like your idea of fun sign up and let's go jumping!
