DONKEY TREKKING in WALES

Snowdonia Donkeys Tregarth, Gwynedd. Snowdonia Donkeys was established in 2013 to promote health and well-being through working and walking with donkeys in the local environment of North Wales. It is our mission to be a centre of excellence for the promotion of health and wellbeing of people and donkeys.

“My 12 year old daughter and I had a wonderful day with the donkeys and Ruth from Snowdonia Donkeys. We got to immerse ourselves in all things donkey and had lots of one-to-one time with the donkeys. Ruth showed us how to groom the donkeys, we got involved with feeding, mucking out and we took Nutmeg and Norman for a walk. It was an amazing day.”
