A long weekend donkey trekking in Le Marche

Marco and friend
Marco and friend

The weekend of 25 to 28 April, 2013 why not go donkey trekking with Marco. Firstly, you will learn how to relate to the donkeys. Marco tells me that they are not like horses and need to be treated differently. Then you will walk with the donkeys from San Ruffino Lake in the valley up to the medieval, hilltop village of Smerillo. You will pass through the woods on the way to Montefalcone Appennino and you will live for a few days in harmony with nature. Experiment with the old towing methods and traditional ways to work the land.


The package includes donkeys and trained guides, the tools needed, insurance, great packed lunches made with local produce and a lunch in an agriturismo. Cost per person for the weekend is €130.00.


There are a number of local agriturismi and B&Bs (including La Mela Rosa!) in which to stay the nights.

    Sounds like so much fun,wish we were staying in Smerillo longer, as if we were I would most certainly do this trip with you and the beautiful donkeys. We just do not have the time this trip! Hopefully the next time.
