Not Your Typical Horseback Riding Vacation in Mallorca, Spain

Instead of a horseback riding vacation in Mallorca, Spain, how about a picnic in the mountains with donkeys? The Hotel La Residencia, a luxury hotel and spa in Mallorca, Spain is offering a picnic in the hillside above the historic Mallorcan manor house.

 

Gourmet Picnic in Mallorca, Spain

Three donkeys, Pancho and his sisters Lluna and Alba, will carry a gourmet picnic, up the newly constructed nature trial for guests to take in the views of the Tramuntana mountains and the Mediterranean Sea while enjoying lunch above Hotel La Residencia in Mallorca, Spain.

While this particular outing is not a horseback riding vacation, donkeys have always played an important role in Mallorcan life. The sturdy, sure-footed mules have been used to carry goods, as well as cart children,  from the villages to the mountain homes.

    Oh my gosh they are so cute! I know plenty of people who are horse-crazy, and as much as I really and truly enjoy horseback riding, I’m not one of them. But I totally would love to give those three cuties in your photo a big hug!
