Dette kommer dere til å gjøre

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. Getting ready for our trekking includes the preparation of our backpacks with all we need, such as cookies, coffee, water e.t.c. The distance we shall cover is about 3-6 kilometers depending on your courage and includes a 20-minute stop at the Bethlehem monastery, which is built on top of the ancient Sfitos town or at a very old small church of St.Nicolas. The surroundings are 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. Your action doesn't stop here. When we arrive back to the stable, you can participate in feeding all donkeys, as well as the chickens and the ducks. As a reward for our 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. Because the experience usually takes more than 3 hours, please let us know if you have any commitment and should limit it to 3 hours.
Other things to note
While you can make your reservation at any time, we 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. It's also nice to make new acquaintances while traveling.

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 almond, olive trees and thyme and the environment reminds of the old Greek countryside. We currently host 15 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.

This experience was the highlight of my trip to Athens and I'm thankful for Dimitri and Katerina havening us spend such a wonderful evening on the countryside. The donkeys were so lovable! At first we got to know each of them, and then we could choose our favourite to take on a walk through the countryside. We finished the evening with a delicious Greek dinner (and the best tzatziki ever!). Dimitri and Katerina are amazing hosts, and you can see how passionate they are about their animals. So I case you had any doubts and were waiting for a sign - here it is, just do it, 100% recommend! :)

A magical moment away from the bustle of Athens. A gentle stroll through olive trees with donkeys crowned by a fantastic homemade dinner - we had booked a restaurant that evening back in Athens and we KNOW there is no way it would have been better than what we had there with Dimitris and his friends
