HACIENDAS
BY HORSE
8 DAYS | 7 NIGHTS
YEAR ROUND

Ecuador - picture postcard views around every corner

An adaptation of our signature tour – the Haciendas By Horse – with six nights in 3 locations, instead of six nights in 6 locations. Following trails through verdant valleys of patchwork fields, then onto the open plains to gallop with wild horses below the snow-capped peak of Cotopaxi Vol-cano; combining the seven days of our spectacular Andes routes with three superb yet very distinct locations.

 
8 DAYS / 7 NIGHTS 
ITINERARY

Two nights at a working Hacienda hidden in the northern valleys; then two locations close to Cotopaxi National park – all three exceptional places and absolutely captivating; and a final night at a Hacienda close to Quito Airport. All rooms with private bathrooms.
