RIDE ANDES - 'La Finca' - Tailor made short trips in Ecuador for riders & non-riders

Join us in Ecuador for our La Finca centre based rides ( & NON RIDES!).

From La Finca there are a variety of circuit rides covering different terrain and of different lengths, allowing us to tailor the rides to our guests' requirements. Some routes lead us up  into the surrounding hills, providing breath-taking views over the valleys below us or of the snow-capped peaks, the closest of which is Cayambe. Other routes wind along wide grassy trails, through conifer forests, and past some of the local hamlets, allowing for some faster paced riding. 

La Finca is very flexible to both riders and non-riders. While some guests are riding there is the option for half and full day trips that can include walking, hiking, bird watching, visits to local markets, mountain biking and trips to Cayambe Volcano. 

Visit the La Finca page on our website for more details or contact us. 

Ride Andes - ANTISANA Volacano, the most challenging climb in the Andes

Antisana is a stratovolcano (multiple vented volcano) situated between the Napo and Pinchincha provinces of the northern Andes in Ecuador. The name Antisana is a Quechua word, which translates to “man of wind and snow” and refers to the fact that all four of the volcano’s peaks are covered in deep, blue tinted glaciers. The glaciers atop Antisana are active (shifting), and the prevalence of ice faces and crevasses make Antisana one of the more challenging climbs in the Andes. Antisana’s most recent eruption was in 1776 and at 5,704 metres (18,714 ft), it is the fourth tallest volcano in Ecuador. Located 50 kilometres (31 mi) southeast of Quito, we ride in the foothills of Artisana for the Volcanoes & Vistas tour and the Cotopaxi Adventure tour.

RIDE ANDES - Ecuador's Cotopaxi Volcano

Cotopaxi is one of South America's most famous volcanoes and one of its most active ones. With its 5911 m it also ranks among the world's highest active volcanoes (26th highest). 
The majestic, snow covered symmetrical stratovolcano is located on the Eastern Cordillera of the Ecuadorian Andes, 60 km south of Quito and 35 km northeast of Latacunga.
