Travel along ancient paths with Etna Donkey Trekking, providing a traditional way to explore a scenic European island. You can choose from several proposed itineraries, designed to showcase the island's pristine landscape. Traveling on the back of a donkey, which moves slowly across the rugged terrain, remains one of the most eco-friendly ways to sightsee, reducing your carbon footprint and ensuring your visit leaves the local nature undisturbed. Most tours run between October and May. In the colder months, you can choose a shorter winter excursion with a visit to an abandoned castle. Take a look at our Linguaglossa trip planning app to schedule your visit to Etna Donkey Trekking and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

Ormai è passato un po’ di tempo da quando con il mio fidanzato abbiamo partecipato all’escursione a dorso degli asinelli, ma ci basta guardare una delle fotto scattate durante quella meravigliosa pass... more »It's been a while since with my fiance took part in the excursion on the back of donkeys, but we just watch one of the care taken during that wonderful walk through nature to pick us a big smile. The day trip of writing, is not only an hour in contact with nature, is something much more: it is a return to nature, is a moment only for ourselves, away from everyday life, from plans, expectations, surrounded only by the simplicity and beauty of the forest, mesmerized by the power of the volcano. All this in the company of animals, docile, sweet and really adorable and gorgeous, Except: a guide that speaking of nature, telling lots of interesting stories, manages to rouse feelings, go back to the roots, admiring the nature: calm and invariable. One of the most wonderful experiences ... definitely on the repeat list! It's been a while since my boyfriend and I took part in the excursion on donkeyback, however it's enough to take a look at one of the photos taken during that wonderful walk in the middle of the nature to smile again. The excursion, which I would like to describe, is not just one hour of time close to nature, but is so much more: it's a return to the nature, it's a moment just for ourselves, away from everyday life, away from programs and expectations, surrounded only by simplicity and beauty of the woods, fascinated by the power of the volcano. All of these in the company of docile, gentle and really adorable animals, and Prejudice: a wonderful guide who talking about nature, telling many interesting stories, was able to inspire positive feelings and to take us back to the roots, admiring nature: calm and to set monetary policy.

We were quite surprised that he made the whole tour only for both of us. He told us a lot about the country and dealing with the donkeys. Filipo and Sophia Loren were two great asses and felt visibly comfortable in Salvo. Since we wanted a few days later on the Etna and still no plan for this, salvo offered companions too. We gratefully accepted this and drove cars with him in his private two days later on the Etna and Salvo showed us great seats and told us about the life at the foot of an active volcano. As well as at the donkeys tour Salvo took a lot of time for us and every moment you could tell how much he loves to present his country. In these two trips, it was always important to highlight the look on the essentials in life and not to forget the stress of everyday life. Each trip itself was great and we have learned a lot. E vino :-) Salvo...grazie per la campione del tuo Meike e Matthias

You gave us your heart with lots of love and we were benissimo...ma especially you taught us the value of listening to the silence with only the sounds of nature and animals. Family Abdullah-Fajardo
Fantastic experience. Great for children at any age. Most attractive way to explore the north side of Etna, guided by incredible Salvo :)
The staff did all they could possibly do to satisfy us on our two-hour tour, which lasted well over two hours. Absolutely spectacular scenery, one of our highlights in Sicily. Excellent service, friendly donkeys.
Lovely relaxed trip with very friendly staff, donkeys looked well looked after and treated nicely
Awesome panorama, good organization
Unforgettable experience to stay really close to nature, on a native animal. Highly recommended.
