Llama, Pack Trip, Utah, Recreation

Llama Pack Trip

Riding horseback or by llama is just one way to experience a western adventure against a western landscape.


Red Cliff's Lodge near Moab features a working ranch, full-service resort and winery that has earned AAA's 4-Diamond rating.

Two Utah ranches specialize in llama and camel pack trips!

Utah's ranches have been written up in the New York Times, Washington Post, Vancouver Sun and the San Francisco Post. Magazines such as Outside, Country Discoveries, TrueWest, Sunset, and even Vogue have sung their praises.

Visitors seeking quality western vacations can experience horseback riding on soaringmountain trails or in the twisting desert canyons favored as hideouts by Butch Cassidyand his "Wild Bunch."

Utah ranches also offer cattle drives, instruction in ranch chores and skills, tours ofancient rock art sites, tall tales told around the campfire and delectable ranch cooking.

Many of the state's guest ranches also provide unexpected amenities like fishing,canoeing, mountain biking, canyoneering, deluxe swimming pools, yoga, spa treatments and even Harley Davidsons just waiting for visitors to "ride off into the sunset."
