Ecuador-picture postcard around every corner

A spectacular horseback riding experience through the incredibly diverse landscapes of the Ecuadorian Andes. Imagine riding through lush valleys awash with citrus and passionfruit, alongside a bubbling stream, picking coffee beans in the cloud forest then – a few days later – cantering across arid plains just below the snowline. Contrasting landscapes and inconceivably wide-ranging terrain and topography are accompanied by a fascinating variety of birdlife, from the tiniest hummingbird to the mammoth Andean Condor.
