If you’ve ever dreamed of escaping to a place of warm hugs and postcard-perfect surroundings, welcome. A Shamarra Alpacas Farm Tour is an unparalleled opportunity to get up close and personal with alpacas, learn about this loving animal, and create some memories with friends and family in a stunning location. You’ll find your new furry friends here in beautiful Akaroa Harbour on the slopes of an extinct volcano and overlooked by craggy volcanic hills. Shamarra Alpacas is just over an hour’s drive from Christchurch, and only a 20 minute trip from the historic seaside village of Akaroa. We are open year round, with the scenery changing beautifully through each season and the alpacas staying cute throughout.
