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.
Gourmet Picnic To Go
For a truly Mallorcan experience, the Hotel La Residencia staff will prepare a picnic of local bread, olive oil, tomatoes, cheese and Mallorca’s famous island sausages and cold meats. The price of this feast, including a guide and friendly donkey is 65 euros, (approximately $88 United States dollars.)
