This beautiful guided walk takes place in protected nature as part of the Costa Vincentina. In the coastal back-lands, in a wide valley surrounded by green hills with view to Monchique mountains.
A majestic cork tree and mediterranean bushland lines the trail. Birdsongs and aromatic scents fulfill the air.
We will have our snack next to an idyllic barrier lake and simply enjoy the rhythm and peace of our donkey companion! During this experience everybody changes into a relaxed, meditative mood. It is accessible to all ages and easy.
Next to the old traditional farm house are hay barn, stables & paddocks.
Here you will first be introduced to our amazing team of 19 donkeys!
We make friends with them and prepare them for the tour: cuddling, grooming & saddling up before we take off to the “Soft Green Hills” tour! Children (max. 40kg weight) can ride, each on his donkey while adults lead the donkeys or walk free and… relax deeply.
The donkey farm is located in Vale das Amoreiras (Mulberry Valley), an oasis of peace and nature, only 4km away from Aljezur and 12km away from some of the stunning Costa Vicentina beaches.
We recommend closed shoes, sturdy clothes and sun/wind/rain protection according to the season. Between July and October repellent might be appropriate
A vegetarian/vegan local seasonal lunch pack from our partner Restaurant Onda Natural (Rogil) is available upon booking at extra costs.
Donkeys love carrots, apples, oranges 🙂
