Find a donkey-trekking holiday in Languedoc Roussillon

A donkey is the ideal companion for hiking and trekking. With a donkey you can discover at leisure the magnificent landscapes and unspoilt countryside of the Languedoc-Roussillon with its five departments.

At the gentle rhythm of your new, long-eared friend, you’ll be off on an adventure to discover lands full of history, legends and character.

A donkey can relieve your children’s tired little legs, carry your luggage and equipment, and offer you the very best hikes and treks for the whole family in the Aude, the Gard, the Hérault, the Lozère or the Pyrénées Orientales.

The Pyrenees, Corbières, Caroux, Causses, Larzac, Margeride, Aubrac, or the Cévennes…the holidays and tours organised by our muleteer guides and the donkey centres of Chevauchées du Sud in these different mountains and plains of the South of France offer you warm sunshine and a means of getting away from it all.
After an introduction to donkey-trekking, in which you’ll get to know your travelling companion and strap on your luggage, you’ll set off to discover some of the region’s most beautiful trails with plenty of time to observe and appreciate the surrounding countryside.

Gentleness and patience are just some of the donkey’s many qualities. A donkey is an endearing travelling companion who will delight young and old alike!
