This horseback riding tour provides a wonderful opportunity for beginners to see part of the magnificent Andes Mountains in Ecuador and to become more comfortable with their horses. After a training session, we begin a gentle six-hour trek in the surrounding trails, led by our professional native guide, and stopping for a delicious lunch. We spend the night in the cabinas of the Boliche National Park - boasting fantastic views of Cotopaxi - and have dinner and a campfire. The next day, after a hearty breakfast, we continue our horse trek through the highlands of Rumiñahui, stopping for lunch and arriving back at hosteria PapaGayo for coffee and cake.
Our three-day horseback riding tour is an impressive and memorable way to experience the famous Cotopaxi National Park in Ecuador. Before beginning our journey, we start with instruction in a safe enclosure with the help of an experienced guide, in order to allow riders to gain confidence with the horses. The first day is spent riding through local farms toward the magnificent Cotopaxi, where we have striking views of Corazon, Ilinizas and Ruminaui. Inside Cotopaxi Park, we make a wide circle around the volcanoes, offering us first-hand views of the flora, fauna and ecosystem at a high altitude. We have the opportunity to see wild horses, llamas, eagles, condors and wild cattle, all of which roam within the Park’s boundaries. The first night, we make camp under the stars and cook on an open camp fire. The second day, we ride and visit Lake Limpiopungo in the flatlands of Cotopaxi. This experience is highly recommended for nature lovers wanting to experience the true way of life in the open Andean mountains. Camping on the second night is at the Tambopaxi Hostel, where we pitch tents in the hostel grounds and have access to their facilities. This tour covers 40km (24.8 miles) each day and is therefore recommended for riders who have some experience.
