Co będziecie robić

Hike side-by-side with happy rescued donkeys.
Donkeys walk at the same speed as a human -- about 4 miles per hour and moving is vital to their health. In the wild, these animals would wander grazing for 10-20 kilometers per day. That’s where we need your help! We like to give our big eared friends a daily hiking adventure to allow their curiosity and sense of wonder to come alive. Please join us for a 1.5 hour hike in the hills of Aqua D’alto.

As we walk, you will get to care for and learn about our rescued donkeys: Gabriela, Joaquin de Horta, Esperança, Edward, and the always entertaining Shetland pony Kiwi. We will hike through the hills at the donkeys’ pace for a first hand look at local life, sharing smiles and many laughs along the way.

The mission of Donkeys and Friends is to help donkeys in need of rescue, rehabilitation, and re-homing. We focus on providing education and protection from animal cruelty, abuse, and neglect as well as a developing a future sanctuary for donkeys that need a forever home.

We believe that authentic and responsible tourism helps our guest engage more deeply with the Azores, and the locals love meeting new people. Our goal is to share our donkeys and community in an friendly way with visitors from all over the world.

Animals have been my passion since I was a little girl. I completed a double major in biology and botany in North Queensland, Australia, with a focus on wildlife conservation.
Over the past 20 years I have worked on various projects all around the world, studying and handling such animals like the fruit bat, Tasmanian devils, hairy-nosed wombats and now these beautiful big-eared equines.

Gdzie będziecie

Agua de Alto is a cilvil parish in the municipality of Vila Franca do Campo on the south side of São Miguel island. They say it’s always Sunny in Aqua de Alto. This is very often true as we are located in a micro-climate were grapes and bananas flourish. We have four stunning beaches, incredible hiking, and a community so happy to share the place they call home.

The donkeys were cuddly and adorable. The scenery was breathtaking. Bethany was unable to join us but we had a great time with Luis and Giovanni. These rescued donkeys (and pony) are enjoying a much better life thanks to Bethany and Co. Giovanni quietly presented an impassioned plea to improve our communities with small acts of charity. I am happy I could play a very small part in this.

Bethany is a wonderful person, it’s so beautiful to see the rescued donkeys and one funny pony doing so well and live in a winderful happy place on sao miguel. Everyone who can do this experience can contribute with a donation to help building a sanctuary for more rescued donkeys on the acores. Amazing experience, love to do it again.

We had so much fun with Bethany, Luis, Thiago, and all of the Donkeys! Everyone (animal and human alike) were super friendly, and we look forward to going back next time we're in the Azores! At one point the Don't fear, even if the Donkey's run away (like they did for us!), they don't make it very far before they stop for a snack!

This was such a lovely experience to meet Bethany and the donkeys!! Bethany is doing great work to rescue these wonderful, friendly, funny animals and I wish her all the best wishes as she continues. Would absolutely recommend this experience to help support this cause and the local community on the island.
