Animal Care

Organised by Company Big Ears

Azores is a magical place, boasting some of the most scenic views and far off islands on planet Earth. What better way to explore this idyllic spot than authentically, alongside our big-eared donkey friends?

At Company Big Ears, we believe, and have seen firsthand how responsible tourism helps visitors engage more deeply with the Azores, and we strive to share our community through the eyes of locals, in the most traditional of fashions. Our mission is to help and protect donkeys in need of rescue, rehabilitation, and rehoming. 

We hope you’ll consider joining us as we journey on a 2 hour tour through Caloura, a parish located in the municipality of Lagoa on Sao Miguel. Joining us will be Margarita, proud mother to our second companion, Pina, a curious, 8-month old baby female donkey.

We start with a one hour walk to the fishing port, discussing flora, fauna, history, and all things donkeys along the way. After stopping for a sweet or salty snack at the famous Bar Caloura, we’ll then make our way to the Cultural Center, where you will have the opportunity to soak in an incredible collection from Portuguese artists at an intimate art museum. Finally, we will return to th Azores is a magical place, boasting some of the most scenic views and historic lands on planet Earth. What better way to explore this idyllic spot than authentically, alongside a donkey:)
