About
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.

My family and I went on a donkey trek and it was very interesting and calming. Real relaxation when we rode among olive trees and vineyards. It was a great time that I spent with my family. I hope we see each other again.

A wonderful hour with my girls (8 & 4). We were running a little late but no problem. The welcome and great energy from Salvo with my daughters was brilliant, and this carried through the experience. His philosophical view on switching off and relaxing we’re exactly why we’d come away on holiday, yet I hadn’t relaxed yet with all the travel. So there I am on a donkey, with one of the best views of Etna I’d seen, finally relaxing and being present; seeing the enjoyment of my daughter was worth every penny and more. A simple, but brilliant experience. And then followed up with a restaurant reservation for lunch… Salvo was a star. High fives at the end. Don’t miss this as you’re rushing around on holiday.

Our tour with Salvo and the donkeys was really nice. We had a one-year old baby with us, so we only took the one-hour tour. We saw Salvo's olive yard and grape vines, a very old crater and had a nice view of mount Etna. The donkeys were gentle and the baby enjoyed the ride together with his mama. We enjoyed Salvo's explanations and philosophical musings very much. The booking per email and the pickup in Linguaglossa were super easy and well organized. Thanks to Salvo and to the donkeys!

Salvo was an amazing host and guide. We went with my 7 and 5 year old daughters and they loved it. Highly recommended as a trip from Taormina.

Everything from start to finish was beautifully arranged. We sent an email for some information which was swiftly answered, and set us up for a 2 hour tour the next day.

We were picked up by Salvo and got introduced to our donkeys for the ride; Ronaldo, Stella and Nadia! After a necessesary introduction to our donkeys we got on the road.

Salvo showed us everything about the environment, life as a Sicilian and what it means to live a simple, remote life and reminded us that happiness is more than what you can see online. He showed us a local vineyard and an Olive Garden and how he tends to his land. Also, Salvo speaks a brilliant word of English so don’t be afraid of getting lost in translation at all!

No other words come up than that it was a totally wholesome experience that I’d recommend to anyone else to disconnect for a bit and feel honestly happy for the time there!

Grazie mille Salvo, hope you, Giusy and the kids are good and we’ll see eachother again!

Salvo is very nice and outgoing, we were a family with an elderly couple. He helped them up the donkey and made them smile. One very good memory to hold on to :-)

Nice ride with the family on the four donkeys. They look well taken care of. 1 hour trip on own land of salvo passing a 600yr old crater. Very nice how he shares his old family traditions

Great way to get out of the city and off the beach to see the countryside. This is a family owned and operated business. Salvo is very passionate about his culture and history. Good information and history about olive oil and wine production and the use of donkeys in agriculture in the Etna region. As hot as it has been (35+)the farm and surrounding areas that we traversed was actually quite nice, even in long pants, plenty of shade.

Etna Donkey Trekking was really a nice experience not only for the little ones but even for us adults. Salvo our guide was very helpful and nice with all of us. He is a true gentleman. It was really a fantastic experience. We all loved it.

We were there yesterday. 2 families with 4 kids. A super experience for kids and parents alike. Salvatore was very nice and funny. He really made us appreciate the experience. 1 hour of time out just to have fun with our kids as he said it. By far the highlight of this sicily trip for the kids.
