Overview

Spinti dalla passione per l'Etna, per il suo paesaggio e il suo ambiente naturale, e dall' amore per quel meraviglioso e dimenticato animale che e l'Asino, abbiamo deciso di sviluppare questo progetto seguendo un modello di sviluppo turistico sostenibile ed eco-compatibile, che ha come obiettivo la valorizzazione del nostro territorio, la riscoperta della cultura rurale e delle tradizioni che un tempo caratterizzavano la nostra terra. Nasce cosi Etna Donkey Trekking.A passo d'Asino per i sentieri dell'Etna, un modo nuovo per far conoscere le meraviglie di questa "montagna", in compagnia dei docili, forti, e fedeli asinelli. Essi un tempo rappresentavano il mezzo di trasporto per le popolazioni agricole e sono gli animali che meglio si adattano alle condizioni morfologiche dei percorsi naturalistici dell'Etna.

Unfortunately not. He ”only” has 7/8 donkeys. Maybe you can split up your group and then it’s feasible. Or some can walk along with him (he himself is not on the donkey). They are basically moving at walking speed.
