Looking for a unique day trip idea this spring? A trip out to the Kensington Prairie Farm is one of the most adorable road-trips you can do just outside of Vancouver! If you've never been to an alpaca farm before then you don't know what you're missing. These goofy cuties have so much personality and spunk that you'll want to take one home with you.\nWhat makes this farm so special is that the alpacas have lots of room to roam and explore and they're so close to Vancouver. There's another alpaca farm in Vernon where you can take the alpacas for a walk but that's a five-hour drive away from Vancouver and you can't fit it in on a day trip. Meeting these alpacas instead is a great respite from city life if only for one afternoon.\nView this post on Instagram day trip to visit the alpacas • we were able to get up close and personal with these guys • they seemed quite easygoing and didn’t mind us admiring them, except for the guy in the video (swipe left four times) kensington prairie farm | langley, bc | 03.31.2018 #kensingtonprairiefarm #langley #alpacas #explorewithmanda A post shared by m a n d a (@say_manda) on Mar 31, 2018 at 3:54pm PDT\nView this post on Instagram O dia em que eu quase encostei numa alpaca 🦙 #alpaca A post shared by Letícia Bohn (@leticiabohn) on Dec 9, 2018 at 11:25am PST\nView this post on Instagram Ready for an adventure!

Alpacas are from South America where they live near the Andes mountains. People make fibres from their soft, fluffy fur just like you would with a sheep. They're basically like sheep with long necks and long legs. They kind of look like and are often confused with llamas but an alpaca is a lot smaller than a llama.\nView this post on Instagram Guess I didn’t have to visit Peru just to see an alpaca!..too bad we couldn’t pet them that day😭💔although I’ve heard awesome stories about them from the owner which I enjoyed the most(I know they look like sheeps in my photos but trust me they’re a lot cuter in real life just bit snobby!😂✌🏻) Although for those who wants to visit the farm they are having an event this coming weekend whre they’re shearing 200 alpacas (if I’m not mistaken with the numbers) and best part YOU get to PET them and HUG and give them kisses up to u💁🏻♀️also it only happens once a year! . . . . . . . . . . #kensingtonprairiefarm #bctourism #narcityvancouver #tourismlangley #farm #alpaca #cute #givethemlove #mustvisitplace #farmanimals #igdaily #photooftheday #visitlangley #loveanimals A post shared by ÅngeliqueÅrc💋 (@angelarc3) on Mar 26, 2019 at 8:30pm PDT\nView this post on Instagram Hi, nice to meet you.
