Today's El Correo Gallego has an article on http://www.elburroperegrino.com . This is a company that rents out donkeys to pilgrims. They deliver the animal to you, take care of it each night and returns it to you each morning. All you do is to walk with the donkey during the day, they take care of the rest.
There are some restrictions:
- They only have this service from Sarria to Santiago.
- You need to rent a minimum of 5 donkeys (!)
- The donkeys should not walk more than 25km per day.
The article mentions a price of about 2500 euro for a 5 day trip with 5 animals.
It sounds like a bit of a hassle and a bit pricy, but for those that were looking for a donkey-rental service, we now have it!
