I’d like to go on horseback, or maybe take a donkey

Again, we would generally not recommend taking animals on camino. However if you are interested in finding out more about this we suggest the following:

In our bookshop you can find books with information on, or accounts of, riding the Camino.

Your Camino: on foot, bicycle or horseback in France and Spain

Three Saint’s Way: Winchester to Mont-Saint-Michel

Three Saints’ Way: Mont Saint-Michel to St-Jean d’Angély

Riding the Milky Way: a journey of Discovery to Santiago

http://www.elcaminoacaballo.com/ has a horseriding guide to buy together with various links.

http://www.chemindecompostelle.com (in French) has lots of advice on horseriding.

See our tour operators section under links for details of companies offering horseback tours and pilgrimage.

 http://www.chemindecompostelle.com  has information (in French) on taking a donkey and a recent interview of a pilgrim with a donkey

There are various organisations which offer donkey or horse hire, planned itineraries with donkeys or organised horseback pilgrimage and we include some details in our Links page. We regret we are unable to recommend any in particular as we have no knowledge of the quality of services they provide.

Hiking with donkey

English page of the website of Jacques Clouteau (author of Il est un beau chemin semé d’épines et d’étoiles) for all you could possibly want to know about walking with a donkey, including lists of donkey hire companies.  Mainly in French.
