In the fellowship of goats
Goat walk with the bucks Gandalf, Fili, Kili, Ori & Nori
What you will do:
You will be taken for a guided walk with our goat bucks Gandalf, Fili, Kili, Ori & Nori through the beautiful surroundings of the farm. It will be funny, refreshing and relaxing all at the same time.
The trek start at the goats barn and ascend into the wild farmland close by. Each trek lasts between 1- 1,5 hour from the beginning of the visit till it is finished. We will start by talking about some interesting facts connected to the Icelandic goats. Then you will meet them while I get them ready with their head collars and lead ropes. We will have a talk about how to be around them and their different temperaments. Once we are all ready to go, you will be given a goat buck to lead and our walk around the field starts. Since there are only five goat bucks and visitors may me more, we will take turns in leading them. Goats take to trekking quite easily. They will walk with you, around you and among you. The experience is about spending time with these lovely animals as well as a walk. The walk itself is at a leisurely pace, there is no solid concrete path and it involves a bit of hill and slope walking. Please note that high heels and flip flops are not encouraged.
Remember to bring your camera to take photos so you have a memory to keep. Once we have had our walk, stopping a few times to let the goat bucks graze (we try not to let them stop to nibble grass for long periods), we will arrive back for a chance to take more photos and give the goats some treats as a thank you to them. This is a nice opportunity to be really close to them and have some selfies.
We´d love to give you our personal service and our hope is that you´ll get the best of memories, a lot of funny photos and a unique experience from both animals and surroundings. Our hope is that this tour will allow you to reconnect with a quieter side of life, one that allows for relaxation and tension releasing, new experience, warm and welcoming animal encounters and a country stroll allowing a reconnection with nature.
We will be spending almost all of our time outside (RAIN or SHINE) so appropriate seasonal attire and good shoes are needed. Waterproof boots are a must if it is wet/rainy.
Our hike ends at the farmhouse, where it began. On the way there will be plenty of time for photos and stops for catching your breath and telling stories.
We are a small private farm so no crowds, just our family home with our animals for you to enjoy. Other animals on the farm are dogs, cats, chickens, horses and sheep.
Local handcraft and educational material available at the farm.
