Relax with animal company
Pure deceleration on a hiking tour with animal companions. An alpaca hike has been proven to provide maximum peace and serenity. Relax during a walk with the fluffy small camels at the foot of the Alpspitzberg and take the buzzing of your alpaca as a compliment. That means in their language: I feel comfortable with you. A tour with donkeys, on the other hand, is a lesson in presence and mindfulness - go on a hiking tour with these sweet cloven-hoofed animals, you'll soon realize: The image of the "stubborn" donkey cannot be confirmed. On the contrary, they are very trusting when their companion is sensitive to them. See for yourself!
