Lake Maggiore on a Donkey

Guided tour in Val Dumentina with friendly donkeys, along old mule tracks searching for old mills.


The meeting place is scheduled in Dumenza at about 9.30 AM, depending on the hour flexibility of the participants.

Here you get to know Serena and Matteo, who are leading you through this excursion with the donkeys.

The trekking is dedicated to the discovery of Val Dumentina on the track of old mills.

Dumenza is a small village surrounded by the green Val Dumentina and it is not very far away from the Lake Maggiore and the border with Switzerland. It has still some traces of old farm cultures thanks to mule tracks and mills fallen into disuse.

Here you are going to spend relaxing and entertaining moments among woods and meadows in flower.

Serena is a mountain guide and Matteo is a guide for donkeys: they are going to guide you through the discovery of the landscapes near Luino and of the world of donkeys.

An intelligent animal with a mild, patient and affectionate character: donkeys are the ideal companions to have a walk on mountains. It is going to carry your rucksack.

After about two hours you are going back to Dumenza.

This trip is an occasion to spend some time with your families and children, who are going to learn love and respect for this animal, which is famous for its stamina and adaptation. It is perfect to create relaxed and direct relationships with people. Its calm makes him a reliable companion not only on mountain routes but also in the cities.

It is an animal that teaches you to observe, think over and have a stop. A relaxed way to walk and to discover right not only for families and children but also for those who are well-trained but want to know what is around him.
