:space on these two tour options – some challenging riding through spectacular scenery in two areas of the Ecuadorian Andes. The terrain and pace are very varied and on every ride we have seen the magnificent Andean Condor soaring overhead. The accommodation is a wonderful mix from a centuries old historic hacienda to a working farm to a newly built hacienda with a great interior design in the most incredible location. The last night out on the tour could not be much remoter, sitting by the roaring fire looking out over miles of uninhabited grasslands, a spectacular Andean ice-capped peak in the background.   (no camping – even in the remotest areas we ride through).
