Join us for a day outside with llamas at Hády quarry. Photo: Lama centrum Brno

Join us and our wonderful assistant and guide Agnieszka for a friendly visit at the famous Brno Llama Centre and explore the beauty of protected flowers and species in the former Hády quarry in Brno – Líšeň.

We will enjoy a tour in English, discovering the various rare flowers that grow in the vicinity through Agi’s expert commentary, learn about the life of the local llamas, goats and sheep, have a picnic near their pasture (leaving the hay to the animals) and optionally try out a unique geological barefoot trail or follow an interesting educational route past lakes and through the reeds. This event is another in our series of weekend trips when the Brno Expat Centre tries to take foreigners out of the city and safely into nature. We have already visited forests in the north of Brno with a trained psychologist as a guide to take away most of the calming effect of the woods. Now – the time comes for llamas!
