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.

Had an amazing time meeting the donkeys, learning about their natures, how to guide them etc. Dimitris made the experience really personable and interesting. I only wish I could take a donkey home because they were so wonderful! Thank you Dimitris and Katerina for your hospitality and knowledge (and excellent cooking).

I was hesitant at first to do this experience (my friend wanted to do it more than I did), but I am so happy that I joined in on the adventure of donkey trekking! Dimitris, Katerina, and the rest of the staff (including all of the animals) were beyond amazing and kind. We enjoyed getting to spend time with the donkeys, learn about the care-taking of the animals, and share a traditional Greek meal with the hosts. This is the best Airbnb experience we have ever had. If you are hesitant about signing up, just do it! You wont regret it! This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

It is a wonderful experience. We learned a lot about the different characters of the donkeys and how to handle them. After getting to know them we had a walk in the beautiful landscape round donkey island. In the end we sat together and had great food and Raki. We highly recommend this experience to everyone who is interested in animals, nature and making new friends.

In any country this would be a fantastic experience, in the beautifully picturesque landscape across the mountains from Athens it is heaven. And in this heaven meet the donkey angels and their loving human helpers, your hosts! This was not only amazing for the location, the views and the wonderful donkeys and other animals, but the warmth of personal loveliness and kindness from our hosts and how they gave me an experience I’ll bring home with me and a memory to warm the heart. It’s only negative is that I can only score it 5 stars, it deserves more!

I had such a great time and I’d say it’s definitely one of the highlights of my trip in Greece on par with or even better than Acropolis and Santorini. Donkeys are very gentle and lovely animals and thanks to Dimitri and Katerina who run this sanctuary I had the opportunity to interact with such wonderful creatures. Katerina was also very lovely and kind and Dimitri very knowledgeable about the animals. Besides, it was very therapeutic to walk a donkey in the Greek countryside. I thoroughly enjoyed the me time with the donkeys.

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.
