Riding on the volcanoes of the Andes

The breathtaking beauty of the Andes experienced on horseback… this trek will offer you a different adventure every day through mountains and valleys. We will meet the friendly "chagras", the local horsemen who on break from work will be eager to tell you their stories and traditions. We will discover the Corazon, Ruminahui, Quilindana, Chalupas volcanoes and of course the majestic Cotopaxi. Your only means of transport will be your horse which will take you day after day to discover these beautiful mountains. And in the evening we will be guests of traditional and comfortable haciendas… and around the bonfire, in the evening, it will be nice to tell the adventures of the day.
