Qué harás

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.

Donde estarás

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.

We really enjoyed our trip with the Donkeys, Bethany was a great guide even showed us a goat after hearing I really like goats. You could see that the Donkeys were living a really good life (now), and are really well taken care of. They were excited to go for the walk and would even come in for a hug. They are a bit dog like in behavior, really curious, waiting in front of the gate to leave, looking into peoples yards, which was really fun and unexpected to see. I would definitely recommend the tour.

We absolutely adored this experience. Exceeded my expectations by so much, the donkeys are so sweet and lovable and are so well taken care of! Bethany was an absolute gem as well, the perfect host and caretaker of these sweet animals. We even got to hug Edward, sweetest moment ♥️ for sure make this a part of your Azores trip, and see the everyday village life of locals on the island!!

Such an amazing experience!! The donkeys and a Pony Kiwi are adorable. You’ll definitely have a great time with them. It’s a must do experience while you’re on the Azores. P.S Bethany is one of the kindest and genuine person you’ll ever met!

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.
