Xperience Keeper for a day

Make your dream come true and immerse yourself in our alpaca breeder everyday life.

Alpagas du Maquis offers you the chance to discover, from the inside, our elite alpaca herd.

Become a keeper for a day and enjoy the wonderful and magical alpaca’s world.

A funny intimate day with those adorable creatures and their passionate breeders.

It’s also an excellent apprenticeship because you’ll be working alongside the farm’s owners as they care for the animals on a daily basis and learn about their unique profession;
