Andes Horseback Riding Tour

Activity Level: Relaxed
Date: Any date of the year

Upon arrival at Cotopaxi National Park, we will visit the interpretation center where descriptions of the local flora and fauna as well as a history of the major eruptions from the worlds highest active volcano are provided. From the parking lot, we will begin climbing up to the refuge where we will rest and enjoy a snack. Back to the parking lot, a decision will be made as to whether we down quickly on mountain bikes to Limpiopungo Lake, or continue the visit in a 4×4 jeep.

The exciting journey will continue, whether by bike or in a jeep, amidst streams and large rocks through El Pedregal valley where the remains of large mud and the lava flow that came down from the volcano during ancient eruptions are still evident. We pass the Pucara de Salitre, a strategic military fortress of the old Inca Empire, and the drive ends at the farmhouse in Hacienda El Porvenir, where a delicious dinner will be ready for us… The Ecuadorian adventure starts here…
