We will meet on the parkingplace of Santuário Senhora da Fé. Here I will pick you up with the jeep for the last 5 km to our 'True Nature experiences' project. On our farm, you will get to know the donkeys, Tiago and Manolo. Together we groom them and we will put on packsaddles so the donkeys can carry our luggage, or children up to 40 kg. For riding we have a special saddle. We will let ourselves be guided by the rhythm of the donkey and make a walk of 1,5 hours through the mountains. We will return to the farm, bring the donkeys back to their meadow, and I will bring you back with the 4weel-drive to your car on the startingpoint, Santuário Senhora da Fé.

When I arrived 6 years ago in Portugal I discovered my passion for donkeys. I learned all about donkeys and their behavior, needs and health on the donkey farm 'Burros e Artes' in Aljezur. I have been a tour guide for several years and beside that I designed my own mindful way to coach people, through interaction with our own herd of donkeys. I guide walks and work with adults and children through systemic work and nonviolent communication. To deepen my knowledge I walked this summer 700 km with our donkey Tiago from the south to the north of Portugal in 2 months. It was a real pilgrimage and this journey was the best teaching of my life! I like to share these insights and skills with you during a Family Donkeywalk.

We will start at Santuário Senhora da Fé, near Cantelães and drive to our farm in the Serra de Cabreira mountains, in the green province Minho in the north of Portugal. In the surroundings of our farm we will walk on beautiful walking trails, through mountains and forest. After the walk, we return to the farm, and I will bring you back to your car.
最多可有10位年满3周岁的参与者参加。家长也可携带2岁以下的儿童参加。 Sometimes our dog Pelle will also accompany us during the walk. He is a very friendly dog, used to be around children.
