Highlands Riding Tours Ecuador

This adventure ride takes you through the very heart of the Western Andes and their unbroken beauty, winding through their hidden depths and heights. Certainly more challenging and demanding than a hacienda riding vacation, this ride addresses the nature lover with adventurous spirit, not minding the lack of luxury in the outdoors and some long riding days through difficult terrain.

Amazing scenery that changes from day to day will accompany you throughout the whole trip and more than compensate your efforts. We'll come across lush green cloud forests, as well as desert like landscapes, deep river canyons and steep mountain slopes, hot sunny valleys and cool windy heights, picturesque farming land and silent crater lakes.

Cultural encounters range from pre-historical testimonies to Spanish upper class descendants, from proud indigenous identity to hard working mestizo farmers. Get into contact with the hidden Ecuador, its natural wealth, its people and lifestyles, while enjoying your ride on great, lively and very reliable horses!
