Welcome to the comprehensive llama packing course brought to you by Treeline Academy and Wilderness Ridge Trail Llamas. With over 30 unique modules, this course is designed to guide you through the entire llama packing and handling process, from start to finish. Whether you're interested in renting or owning llamas for your backcountry adventures, this course covers all aspects of llama packing.

Llamas are remarkable animals that have surged in popularity as backcountry pack animals. They are incredibly intelligent, easy to handle, and gentle by nature. Their soft padded, two-toed feet and natural agility make them sure-footed and easy on the terrain, while their keen senses of smell, hearing, and sight often alert us to the presence of other animals. They make great hiking companions as they walk at a comfortable pace and are great with kids.

This online course is an end-to-end educational resource for those interested in learning more about llamas as pack animals, as well as those seeking to rent llamas from our approved rental operations. The rental operations listed below require parties on the trip to successfully complete this online course as part of the rental agreement. Please check with each organization for more details. This course is the first step towards getting you on your way to renting llamas for your outdoor adventures.

Please note that each rental operation may have additional requirements, such as an on-site, hands-on training and evaluation before heading into the backcountry. Contact your designated rental operation to get the full details and requirements.

Each module includes a short quiz to test your knowledge and training proficiency. Upon successful completion of the course, each party in your group will receive a certificate of completion that can be forwarded to the designated rental operation. This course is a great way to prepare for your next backcountry adventure with llamas.
