Not longer then 50 years ago you would have found a donkey on every corner of Kefalonia. Used for work up in the mountains, carrying wood, hay, and olives into the villages or grain to the mills. Along with the modernisation in agricultural and forestry the donkeys started to disappear.

Well known for their calm temper, their amazing social skills and the fact that they are very sure footed in every terrain, donkeys are perfect companions for short walks or longer hikes. Donkeys are no fast runners. They will slow you down and give you the chance to enjoy the nature you are surrounded by.

Take your chance and get of the beaten path.
