Etna donkey trekking

A donkey is a very gentle, funny and friendly animal, slow and cautious, allowing you to forget the stress and hustle and bustle of the city. The donkey is the ideal companion for an excursion with children. Etna donkey trekking is the ideal excursion when you want to unplug and enjoy nature. Etna Donkey trekking, an ecological choice!

Etna donkey trekking route

The walk starts at the Donkey Ranch in Linguaglossa. You walk through a forest, past olive groves and vineyards and enjoy a panoramic view of the volcano Etna. Along the way there is plenty of time to get in touch with nature, take photos with the donkeys and enjoy the surroundings. The tour is led by the friendly Salvo who will tell you all about donkeys and nature.

In short, a donkey ride brings not only relaxation and rest, but also fun and knowledge! And all this at the foot of the volcano Etna!

Excursion with donkey

You can choose between two options for this donkey ride:

  • Donkey riding (A dorso d'asino)
  • Donkey trekking (Camminare con l'asino)

A combination is also possible. For example, children ride donkeys and parents walk alongside the children with the donkey, or with a 'private' donkey by the hand. The wellbeing of donkeys is paramount. For this reason, donkeys can carry a maximum of 90 kilos. If you enjoy being in contact with nature and donkeys, then a donkey walk is the ideal solution.

If you plan to relax with the family, enjoy a peaceful walk on the slopes of Mount Etna in Linguaglossa. On the back of a donkey, you can visit small glimpses rich in history and tradition. And you can admire Mount Etna's scenic landscape with the utmost serenity, giving yourself a real cure for the soul.

FAQ Etna Donkey Trekking

1. Can I come with a buggy?
Unfortunately not. The terrain on which we walk is not suitable for buggies. We recommend carrying small children in a baby carrier.

2. Can I ride a donkey with my child?
Only to take a photo, taking into account the maximum capacity of the donkey. During the walk, only 1 person may sit on the donkey. As a parent, you may walk beside your child.

3. How many donkeys are there?
We have six donkeys. If there are more of you, there is no problem. You only pay for 6 donkeys and during the excursion you can swap with the donkey-rider!

4. My child is 3 years old, can he ride the donkey?
Yes, but remember that you are responsible for your child. The important thing is that the child is well cared for and feels safe. Finally, it should be an enjoyable experience for the child. We recommend a minimum age of 4 years.

5. I'm expecting, can I ride on the back of a donkey?
We are always very careful about this. Your safety and that of your future child is paramount. That is why we choose not to allow pregnant people to ride donkeys. Of course, it is possible to walk with a donkey!
