Enjoy a guided and exclusive farm tour to see the rare and highly inquisitive alpaca. One of the most beautiful and elegant animals in the world, not to mention very friendly. Most visitors simply want to cuddle these wonderful animals and take as many selfies as they can. This is encouraged at every opportunity.

Visitors will be able to feed the animals, touch and handle the animals and marvel at the soft and lustrous fibre that makes these animals so attractive as a fibre producer. Crias (babies) in season can be held for photographs.

Kit Johnson will provide an entertaining commentary and answer any questions that may arise. Silverstream Alpaca Stud has expansive lawns and gardens with a river boundary. Relax and enjoy without pressure on time.

The tour concludes with a visit to our trophy room and shop.

Silverstream is one of the larger alpaca farms in New Zealand and specializes in live animal exports and farm-stay accommodation.
