Walking with Donkeys - for your family or friends

Come and meet us, in our small village situated in the Seven Valleys, bring your family or friends, spend a few hours or days experiencing life at a donkey's pace !

Setting off on your own or with a guide, but always with a donkey at your side, is one sure way of having an enjoyable time when out walking - especially if children are around !
Whether on holiday, or just away for the weekend - they will love spending time with this animal which seems to have stepped straight out of a story book.

Along paths and rivers, past châteaux, through forests and villages, your donkey will be a steadfast companion, carrying your baggage, following you without a care wherever you lead, allowing you to follow your dreams.

You will travel at 3 to 4 kms an hour, walking at a donkey's pace, armed with your own map and instruction manual about how to look after your long-eared friend. Various walks leaving from Ruisseauville are on offer. And of course, before you leave,  we spend some time with you preparing the donkey, so that you know all you need to know about looking after him, and you are comfortable in his company !
