The tours with donkeys are held by appointment
The donkey is a great educator and a mediator between people and environment.
It is fun and nice with everyone. The donkey doesn’t judge, it doesn’t express any opinion and it doesn’t wear trendy clothes; anyway the donkey is really friendly and reserved, on the other hand it is independent and determined. For these reasons is quite easy to empathize with him.
The donkey is a slow animal, therefore it teaches you to ‘slow down’ , offering you the possibility to be a good observer and it allows you to appreciate what you meet in your walk.
It is a prudent animal, so it invites people to be prudent. In fact if a donkey perceives a danger it stops and goes around the obstacle.
The donkey is stubborn, anyway it doesn’t give up, so it teaches us to be steadfast.
It is perfect in order to reinforce the self-esteem of young boys with difficulties: it’s not scary, you can brush him in tranquillity; it asks for cuddles and gives them back, it is reassuring and transmits calm.
This animal doesn’t obey when people mistreat him, but he collaborates if he fells pet; in this way he teaches the sensibility and the respect for people.
In the past donkeys were used by farmers instead of tractors.
We organize guided tour in English.
Our excursions are realized with Silvana ( female donkey) and Silvano (male donkey).
Example of a daily visit (visits can also be realized in two days) with departure from Lago di Fimon.
