Donkey Walks & More



Enjoy a unique donkey walk in one of the most beautiful areas of the west coast, in the nature park Costa Vincentina in the Algarve, Portugal. This walks are ideal for adults and young nature lovers alike!

Walk with a herd of five donkeys: Cameron & Lucia, Josefina and the two youngest, Frederico & Luisa.
Have a lot of fun with all of them, they are very friendly and cute to all children and adults and always a bit naughty amongst themselves.





Experience an enjoyable and relaxing time in the stunning canyons of the west coast at the pace of a donkey, strolling through beautiful paths and crossing small streams or have a walk to the beach, where you will be rewarded by a magnificent view over a huge part of the west coast. We also hear the sounds of nature and catch a glimpse of bees, deers, wild boars, turtles and other wild animals.
May this be also the highlight of your holyday!

The most important thing ;-) --- most people always ask:

Donkeys love carrots and those who give them. If you like, you are welcome to do so. They eat easily 3 kilos, it is best to cut them into two, three or more pieces, so that you have something of it during the whole walk.

Special benefits of our Donkey Walks:

Reconnect with nature on our unique donkey walks! Life in modern civilization disconnects us more and more from nature, which can lead to unhappiness or even illness.  

As you might know, donkeys have been used since a long time in therapies for mental and physical disorders for children, adults and elders alike and in general for deep relaxation.

What is so unique about our donkey walks:
In most cases, donkey therapies take place in a fenced area, but with us you can experience the healing power of the donkeys walking through the beautiful nature surrounded by old trees and wild animals. Inhale the clean air of the Atlantic Ocean, which is enriched by the essential oil of the eucalyptus trees. Or smell aromatic herbs or take a rest under old cork oaks or at the beach.
And have a lot of fun with the Happy-Donkeys family who lead a very natural life and do bring always maximum enjoyment.

Our healing donkey walks are perfect for:

  • Everyone who wants to enjoy a relaxing time in nature.
  • Everyone who wants to show their children happy donkeys and beautiful nature.
  • Everyone who wants to experience the healing energy of calm donkeys and mother nature.
