Short Tours

Before our "take off", to easily familiarize with the long eared friend we will groom and harness them together. After you can guide your donkey companion through nature while kids can ride. One donkey is normally the companion for up to three people.

Our Short Donkey-Tours 
- guided or individual -

Tour 1: Inspiring bath in mother nature
We will donkey-hike through an abundantly covered shady valley softly uphill with a short steeper section (10 min,). A wonderful introduction to the regional vegetation like rockrose, cork tree, arbutus and heather. On top greets us a fantastic view to the Monchique mountains.
