Haciendas Ecuador

Join us on a beautiful equestrian getaway in the highlands of Ecuador, your base at the historic and charming Hacienda Zuleta. Giving name to a whole valley and a small village, Zuleta is an excellent place for an intimate encounter with Andean culture and tradition. Upon stepping through its 16th century gates, you will feel as if you were traveling back in time. Situated in the pastoral Zuleta Valley, the hacienda is home to the most exclusive barn in Ecuador and combines excellent quality horses with outstanding service on a famous colonial hacienda. The five thousand acre estate is nestled 2 hours North of Quito in the Andes Mountains at 9,000 feet.

Throughout the many years, Zuleta has entertained presidents and their families, dignitaries and also celebrities, and therefore our staff knows how to truly make your stay unforgettable. Family recipe dishes made of farm fresh products, complimentary birthday surprises, your own personal favorite juice to start each morning, extra hot water bottle when nights are chilly and some fresh flowers on your picnic table – it is the little details that make you feel at home at Zuleta.

The vacation starts with a pick up from Quito, and on the way we can stop at the famous indigenous Otavalo market. The next five riding days are on board their top quality horses and are filled with exciting new sights and trails each day. Climb to the top of the volcanoes and ride through lush green valleys - the riding is only interrupted each day by the luxuriously set out lunches along the way. In the evening you come back to the historic hacienda and after a delicious organic meal we invite you to sit around the fireplace and talk about the excitements of your daily experiences.
