Family with a donkey in the mountains

Donkey rides with the family, in the mountains, in the Haute-Savoie, Samoens, are the opportunity for a fun discovery of the mountain for the whole family. The tops of our mountains will have to look good.

They are gentle, intelligent (contrary to what is often thought), feed on herbs and love children. Walking with donkeys is ideal for a family with children who want to discover the wonders of the mountains. Routes are organized in the summer in Samoens in Haut-Giffre. They offer the opportunity for the children, but also their parents, to discover the fauna and flora of the meadows between two caresses to the guides.

Caresses well deserved, because the donkeys carry the bags without complaining. The Haut-Giffre travel agency allows you to enjoy these lovely animals on a mini-tour through Haut Giffre. It takes place in three days in the countryside, between 1200 and 1800 meters. This family tour also includes accommodation in a gite and a sheltered shelter. In the evening you can enjoy a warm and hearty meal. A breakfast will be taken before the departure of the refuge.

Other options are offered to you to take advantage of the donkey walks, because shorter steps and according to your wishes can be organized in Haut-Giffre or in other sectors. And as the saying goes: “You can’t turn a donkey into a racehorse”. So you have enough time to enjoy the beautiful panoramas of the Alps!
