The Kaserhof, or Mair am Kaser farmstead, located in Soprabolzano (Oberbozen) at 1,320 m a.s.l., is really versatile: since 1990, the popular family destination has been dedicating itself to the breed of full-blooded Arab horses and is considered the highest located stud of Europe. Since 1996, the Mair family also breeds llamas and alpacas. This oldest and biggest llama farm of Italy bears the name “de Oro” and is by the way one of the most successful on European scale.
By arrangement, visitors can take the leash for a 3.5-hour walk with the llamas. The intelligent and docile animals carry the bags, and together you’ll walk along the old Roman Road towards the Earth Pyramids. Once reached the natural monument, you can enjoy a traditional South Tyrolean snack. Also several-day-tours in the mountains, intensive courses for llama breeders and owners as well as a riding stable are offered. However, this farm has also a role to play in healthcare and Pet Therapy, as the interaction with the llamas has a positive impact on body and soul.
Goose, chicken, ducks, dogs, cats and Scottish Highland cattles complete the wide range of animals at the Kaserhof. The beautiful farmstead was reconstructed in 2002 and provides also a natural playground, holiday apartments and a tavern that is ideal for an afternoon chat with coffee, cake and chocolate after a great day with the llamas. And how to reach the Kaserhof? It can be found in Via Geirer road in Soprabolzano, a parking place is available!
