GREAT FAMILY HOLIDAYS FROM HAPPY DONKEYS

For us, donkeys are a way of life: we passionately believe that walking with them is therapy for the soul. We take pride in providing family holidays with a twist: your donkey travelling companion will become an unforgettable member of the family for the duration of your trip.

A Happy Donkey Tour will lead you out of hectic everyday life and into a slower, more sedate world where there is time to listen to your own footsteps. Our treks offer the opportunity to swap the hustle and bustle of the city for the tranquil landscapes of Italy’s mountains and coastlines, experienced at the unhurried pace of your donkey.
