A unique and fun experience to meet and ride the friendly Cyprus donkeys in their own environment. The best way to discover and capture the original spirit of rural Cyprus.

On your way to Pafos donkey farm, you will pass by quaint villages still holding on to their traditional life styles. Travelling along winding roads, and picturesque orange groves of Pafos region you will make your way to the “Xeros” river valley, near the village of Kelokedara. The perfect place for nature lovers to spend an amazing day and live a modern fairy-tale.

Beside the river, you will find the Donkey farm. A haven for the Cyprus donkey has been created to live and reproduced. Additionally, the area of the farm is configured as an open museum of rural life, customs and traditions of the island.

Upon arrival at the Donkey Farm you will be given the warmest of welcome.
Sample various traditional products, pure and straight from Cyprus nature. Taste Village wine, “Zivania”, Commandaria, carob syrup, honey and try some local delicacies such as “halloumi” cheese, olives, local oven bread, delights etc. While enjoying this feast of flavours and sensations, you can stroll around the stone-built venues and see the small Museum of agricultural art, where you can get a full explanation how Cypriots used to make wine and Zivania long time ago.

A fantastic Donkey Ride is next. The watchful supervision of professional staff will ensure both comfort and safety for the whole family. Meet the friendly Donkeys and enjoy a ride through the peaceful Pafos countryside before you arrive at the abandoned 14th Century Monastery, “Panayia tou Sindi”. It has recently been expertly restored by UNESCO. In 1997 this project was granted the prestigious EUROPA NOSTRA award and was recognised as a World Cultural Heritage monument. There we will try some seasonal fruits and enjoy the unique tranquillity of the hills.

Opportunity to experience an era gone by with a special ride in the authentic Bedford “Village” Bus still in action today!

Back to the farm where, a typical BBQ meal accompanied by home cooked specialities, will be waiting for you with wine, zivania and juice for the children. When you have had your fill, a show of Cypriot folk dancing and music will begin. Join us for some folk dancing, participate in the not-to-be-missed ‘Syrtaki’ ritual and Let our Donkey Farm team surprise & entertain you with Cypriot, Greek & International music & dancing!

Before leaving the donkey farm you will be presented with a diploma to certify you have completed all “the ‘challenges’…
