HORSE BACK RIDING

Riding in the Andes, as the local cowboys or so-called “Chagras” do, provides a unique opportunity to explore the off-road areas and small villages while riding “criollo” Andean horses.

As a beginner, you can enjoy a short ride around Cotopaxi National park. You will be accompanied by a local guide who provides a preliminary briefing on how to handle the tame horses.

For more experienced riders, we offer tailor-made circuits that start in the Andes and continue down to the Cloud forest. Canter across the plains of Cotopaxi National Park below the snowcapped peak, loop around the hidden Piñan lake and ride down steep paths into the  Cloud Forest of the Intag valley.
