Rhine Valley Alpacas and Hostel

Getting to know alpacas is one of the greatest experiences in life! Those animals are just fascinating as they make everybody happy and smile. Spending time with them and joining them on their trekking tours is the perfect way to relax and reconnect with nature. All in all - if you´re an easy-going, caring and welcoming person, who loves to get to know people from all over the world and of course who loves animals you´re perfect for this exchange and more than welcome to stay with us!

We will be happy to show you around the region and make sure you don´t miss out on the most beautiful spots we do have to offer. We are surrounded by magnificent vineyards and wineries along with many old Castles, which are worth a visit and many other attractions. There is plenty of opportunityies for you to site see! We hope that during your stay with us you will enjoy meeting and socializing with local people as well as meeting other volunteers and our guests from all over the world. Andi and I both used to travel for a while, so we know that it is a very special and unforgettable time. We would be grateful to be a part of your great travel experience!

This was such a great experience! The hostel is in a village along Rhine Valley. There’s a bunch of villages, towns, and a few cities close by that you can walk to, take the train or bike to. The weather was very nice in April, expect some rain. The nature is beautiful and very unique. There’s lots of walking and hiking to be done. Andy and Linda are so sweet, welcoming and fun. Everyone I met in and around the village were very sweet and welcoming. The alpaca tours are a great way to get some exercise and to spend time with the alpacas, they’re all so cute.
I had a very nice time!

I definitely recommend this experience! Linda and Andy were very welcome and accommodating. The work is light and they are very flexible with anything you’d like to do and they accommodate to any plans you may have while here. Linda often carries out alpaca walks which are a lovely way to see the village and get to meet locals too. I got to try some local food which was cool! The only thing is that during spring (March) it is quite quiet so there is less to do but Bad-salzig is a very beautiful place. And the train station is very close by so you can see other surrounding places very easily!

My experience was super! Since the beginning I felt very welcome at the place! The region is amazingly beautiful! You can use train and bike to know the places around. The job is very nice and easy going so you have a nice free time to enjoy too!

Thank you for this amazing month, I really enjoyed it!

Thanks so much! Unfortunately it seems like I missed the chance to leave a review for u, as it's only possible 2 weeks after the departure. I didn't know that. My bad, sorry!

Anyhow we're happy to hear that you liked it so much. Thanks for all your work and for joining me on so many tours! Have a nice winter season!



Mi experiencia fue excelente, fue mi primer voluntariado y mi único arrepentimiento fue quedarme poco tiempo. Andy y Linda son muy amables y flexibles, las tareas son simples, hay mucha naturaleza y disfrutas de un lado menos turístico de Alemania, tuve mucha comunicación y flexibilidad con los host, las alpacas son muy buenas. Si te gusta la naturaleza y los animales no lo pienses dos veces. Muchas gracias por mi estadía aquí, espero regresar.

My time with Linda and Andreas was short but sweet, I really enjoyed working at the hostel and having the oportunity to take care of the Alpacas which was surprisingly less work than I expected, they just need food, water and a clean space.
Linda & Andreas always made me feel welcomed, the house and hostel was very clean, and I had plenty of free time to explore Boppard and surrounding towns. Thank you for everything!!
