Your self guided donkey hike takes place in protected nature, in the coastal back-lands, in a wide valley surrounded by green hills with view to Monchique mountains. Some majestic cork trees and mediterranean bushland line the trail. Birdsongs and aromatic scents fulfill the air.
Have your snack next to an idyllic barrier lake and simply enjoy the rhythm and peace of your donkey companion!
We have three optional tours for you with different difficult level, from easy to medium.
We will meet next to the old traditional farm house are barn, stable & paddocks. Here you will first be introduced to our amazing team of 19 donkeys! We will then talk about the trail, hand over map and directions, teach you how to handle the donkey and finally invite you to make friends with your new companion preparing him together for your tour: cuddling, grooming, feeding & saddling up. We still join you the first steps on the trail.
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 🙂
