No more then 50 years ago you would have found a donkey in every corner of Kefalonia
Used for work up in the mountains, carrying wood, hay, and olives into the villages or grain to the mills. Along with the modernisation of agriculture and forestry the donkeys started to disappear.
Well known for their calm temper, their amazing social skills and the fact that they are very sure footed in every terrain, donkeys are perfect companions for short walks or longer hikes. Donkeys are no fast runners. They slow your pace down and give you the chance to enjoy the nature you are surrounded by.
Get off the beaten path together with my donkey ladies Grisella, Wiolätta, Dora and Louise and you can discover the beauty and rich history of Kefalonia the traditional way. Enjoy amazing views over the bay of Sami, evergreen valleys of the area and dive into the history of the island.
No matter if you are 2 years old or 99 years old! Water bottles, supplies and tired little legs will be carried by the donkeys.
Please note: Donkeys shouldn’t carry more than 20% of their own bodyweight. To make sure that my donkeys stay healthy anybody up to 55kg is welcome for a donkey ride.
