Donkeys used to be the only "vehicule" in Amorgos before the asphalt road was made.
Today you can still see lots of them and some locals propose different rides around the villages.
As the owners of the donkeys are local people and don't speak very good English, Aegialis Hotel & Spa can provide you an English speaking guide.
The two principal rides organized are around Lagada and Tholaria.
Total estimate time: 2 hours and 45 minutes.
The ride from Tholaria usually goes to Agios Dimitrios church.
With this beautiful ride, you will see the whole Aegiali bay from different points of view, the village of Tholaria on the right as you're moving to Agios Dimitris and a unique view of the port of Aegiali and Nikouria island. At the same time, you will experience the agricultural life as you will see some old wells and vineyards.Arriving at Agios Diomitrios, you can enjoy an incredible view on the other side of Amorgos and the surrounding islands.
There before coming back, you can have refreshments and explore around.
Total estimate time: 2 hours and 30 min.
