Treeline Pursuits offers pack llama and divide series tent rental services out of Missoula, Montana. This is exciting news for those Montana adventure seekers. Renting llamas gives you the opportunity to explore the backcountry like never before!
Llamas are incredibly smart and easy to handle. They are the perfect low-impact, pack animal. They have soft padded, two-toed feet and their natural agility makes them sure-footed and easy on the terrain. They have no more impact on the trail than a fully loaded backpacker. Llamas will eat a variety of vegetation enjoying a sampling of leaves, grasses, and plants. Their efficient digestive system yields droppings that look similar to elk scat.
Llamas are calm, gentle by nature and great with kids. They make great hiking companions as they walk at a comfortable pace. They are alert and very curious. They have a keen sense of smell, hearing, and sight and often alert us to the presence of other animals.
Our rental Llamas are quality-bred and trained Pack Llamas also known as Working Llamas. The Classic Llama or CCARA Llama are experts at carrying heavy payloads in rugged terrain. Our llamas are bred, trained, and conditioned to pack. Llamas are wonderful trail companions with lots of exposure to new people, elements, and scenarios. Now you can rent llamas for a fraction of the cost to buy llamas or rent horses. Perhaps the best news about Llamas is they are extremely low maintenance and easy to handle on the trail. On our family backcountry trips, our 5 and 8-year-old children lead and handle their own Llamas.
Llama Rentals Include: Saddle, blanket, panniers, scale, halter & lead rope, stake, stakeout lead, feed pellets, 4-gallon square buckets or coolers, and orange neck bands for llamas. We have a horse trailer available for rent if needed.
The rental trailer is 12′ long, weighs 3,500 pounds and has a tandem axle. The trailer has trailer brakes and is set up to take a 7 pin round connection. Please make sure your truck is set up with a break controller, no blown fuses, and fits a 7-pin round trailer plug, or bring your own adapter. We can provide a trailer hitch for you, as long as you have the 2′” square receiver hitch. The trailer takes a 2″ ball.
