Owner description: Spinti dalla passione per l'Etna, per il suo paesaggio e il suo ambiente naturale, e dall' amore per quel meraviglioso e dimenticato animale che e l'Asino, abbiamo deciso di sviluppare questo progetto seguendo un modello di sviluppo turistico sostenibile ed eco-compatibile, che ha come obiettivo la valorizzazione del nostro territorio, la riscoperta della cultura rurale e delle tradizioni che un tempo caratterizzavano la nostra terra. Nasce cosi Etna Donkey Trekking.A passo d'Asino per i sentieri dell'Etna, un modo nuovo per far conoscere le meraviglie di questa "montagna", in compagnia dei docili, forti, e fedeli asinelli. Essi un tempo rappresentavano il mezzo di trasporto per le popolazioni agricole e sono gli animali che meglio si adattano alle condizioni morfologiche dei percorsi naturalistici dell'Etna.

Reviewed April 18, 2013

We had a great trip when visiting Etna in April. We hadn't planned on it but as it was low season there weren't many people about and the cable car wasn't running. As it was, we loved it - especially our two young children (aged four and 20 months). Our guide Salvo was friendly and passionate and took great care of the children. The donkeys were lovely and the scenery was amazing. Highly recommended.

Really enjoyable trip with two highly knowledgeable and friendly guides across the Etna countryside. Ambling along the valleys - a journey back in time. A must-go!

We went during the off season and found the guide brilliant and a genuine Sicilian in body and mind. Recommended, especially during the off season when.you have etna to yourself!

“Lots of fun!”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

We went for a mule ride trough the forest of the Etna, in the snow. It was a sunny day end of December, it was very magical. Sig Salvatore, our guide was very friendly and funny. We met his mother down in Linguaglossa, a very helpful and charming lady and she told us about the donkeys in the snow. It was one of the best things we did on our last trip to Sicily and we will for sure go back in summer!
