Before our walk, we meet the donkeys and find out about their nature and special needs and features. You will learn how to approach, groom, feed, put on the halter and handle a donkey.
To start our trip we choose the appropriate donkey for each hiker. The distance we shall cover is about 3-6 kilometers depending on your courage and includes a break for water and beverages. The path we take is full of old olive trees and vineyards. During our trekking you will learn how to read and understand the donkey's behavior and how to lead and negotiate with your donkey. Walking by the side of the most patient and calm animal is a unique experience that you will remember forever. When we arrive back to the stable, you can participate in feeding the donkeys, as well as the chickens and the ducks. As a reward for your effort we will enjoy a glass of Greek raki and traditional mezedes. Keep in mind that the start time of the experience is indicative and can be modified according to your wish. As the experience usually takes more than 3 hours, please let us know so we can adjust the duration.
We strongly recommend that you choose dates that other guests have already booked. It's much more fun. It is a unique experience to see many donkeys walking in the countryside and it is also nice to make new acquaintances!

I left advertising/studio photography after 27 years in order to be near my lovely donkeys, take care of them and share my passion with everyone who wants to know this amazing animal. I trained and certified as a donkey keeper from the Donkey Sanctuary of Manchester. I love to live in the nature and - among others - organize trekking walks next to these amazing creatures. With our donkeys as hikers, we take long walks through paths, meadows and unfamiliar landscapes. This experience offers a bond of trust and friendship with this special animal.
I'm also the co-founder of the Hellenic Donkey Center -
Gaidourohora. We currently host 16 donkeys, ensuring a life with proper care, love & respect for their needs and take action for the recovery of those in need, advising and training owners and providing information, education, and treatment.

We are located in Koropi, a suburb east of the Hymettus mountain and 16 km southeast of central Athens. Our farm is full of thyme, almond and olive trees and the environment reminds the visitor the old Greek countryside. We currently host 16 donkeys. Our walk will take place in the Hymettos mountain range with a rich ecosystem with over 600 species of plants, more than 100 species of birds and several species of mammals.

Big recommend if you are in the area! Dimitris picked us up at the metro station and once at his farm treated us as friends. The farm is a magical place with animals in every corner. The donkeys are very sweet and each have a clear own character. Trekking with them is surely interesting and a humbling experience. After the trek we were treated to amazing homemade Greek tapas to complete the experience. It was amazing and surely a highlight of our trip.

I would recommend this for anyone who loves animals. It was a lot of fun learning about donkeys, and spending time with them and getting to see all their different personalities.

Unforgettable experience!! Dimitris and Katerina were incredible hosts and guides for the evening. I enjoyed spending time with the donkeys, and Katerina’s cooking was spectacular. We very much enjoyed the group we were with. I highly recommend this experience to anyone who is looking to get away from the city and see the beautiful countryside!

This was a wonderful experience, organised very friendly and welcoming hosts. The first impression we got from the sanctuary is that Dimitris is very dedicated to the sanctuary. I highly recommend this activity to anyone visiting Athens or anywhere nearby. This is an authentic Greek experience where you'll get to learn about, interact and bond with donkeys. After getting introduced and assigned a donkey, we learned how to brush and lead them. The scenic but relatively easy trek with the donkeys is a thing I'll never forget. During the trek, we also got the chance to sit down in a field and talk. After the trek we got chance to interact with other animals and take pictures, namely with donkeys, cats, dogs, rabbits, chickens, ducks. At the end we also got to experience a wonderful, homemade, traditional, plant-based dinner which was delicious. Getting to and from the sanctuary was very straight forward. We just took the metro to Koropi station and were picked up from infront of the cafe with no hassle at all. If you're put off by the travel time (which in our case only took about 45 minutes), I can assure that it's more than worth the travel time and I'm 100% sure you won't regret this.

My boyfriend and I had a fun and educational experience. We were picked up from the metro station. Met 4 other Americans on the tour. We got to interact with the donkeys, geese, cats, dogs, and rabbits. We enjoyed the walk with the donkeys who all had very different personalities. We were pleasantly surprised with snacks during and a Greek dinner after the hike. Definitely wear pants and clothes that you can get dirty. Sturdy shoes would also be helpful, and a strong will to keep your donkeys from munching on grass :-p I would highly recommend this unique experience and would do it again in a heartbeat.

A great and special thing to do in Athens! Dimitris is a great guide and you can tell he really loves these animals and takes great care of them. The donkeys were very cute and fun to be with. The dinner we had with him and Katerina was one of the best we had in Greece, which is saying a lot! It’s a bit far from the city (but you can easily manage with the subway) and it’s definitely worth the ride 🤩 we really recommend this unique experience!
