A spectacular horseback riding tour journeying through the best of the Ecuadorian Andes. Stunning scenery, riding over incredibly varied terrain, traversing the fascinating scenic northern valleys & remote highlands –two very distinct areas of the Andes. We ride down into the cloud forest passing tropical fruits and coffee – a complete change of vegetation. The birdlife is amazing- from tiny hummingbirds to the great Andean Condor.
Suitable for fit, experienced riders. This horse riding tour Includes a visit to the famous Otavalo market, stays at a working ranch, comfortable cottages in a local village & at a remote hamlet on an Inca trading route.
“…We rode through awe inspiring scenery, through lush steep forests, rolling grasslands, past blue lakes, snowcapped volcanoes, through century old villages and farms to a picturesque village where time has stood still forever. We were humbled by the hospitality of the locals … Having had the opportunity to ride in many countries, this ride gets a ‘High Five’ recommendation from us.” K & A, October 2015
