About this activity
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Cotopaxi National Park, Ecuador

Your tour begins with an early morning pickup from your Quito hotel (Urban Zone) and an around 1.5-hour drive into the Cotopaxi National Park.

Arrive at the ranch and enjoy a cup of tea or coffee as your instructor takes you through the safety briefing. After being paired with a suitable horse, mount up and spend some time learning the basic controls. Once you feel comfortable, set out on a trail ride in the Andes mountains, riding through the foothills of the mighty Cotopaxi Volcano. Rides are tailored to the level of your group so beginner riders can soak up the scenery at a steady pace, while more experienced riders will have chance to trot or gallop across the mountain plains.

After returning to the ranch, you’ll have chance to enjoy lunch (optional; extra cost) before heading back to the city.

Back in Quito, your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.

Duration: 5 hours
