Overview

In the morning we start driving north to the ranch. Once we arrive, we begin the ride with robust and amicable Andean horses they will take us through stunning landscape, this crater is the biggest one on the whole American continent and one of only two inhabited craters in the world.

While continuing the ride you will discover that the landscape is constantly changing with huge biodiversity. When circling the central lava cone, we'll witness volcanic history, interesting geological formations, mineral avalanches blooming with wild orchids and traditional Andean agriculture. The horseback riding length will be approximately 4 hours.

Afterwards we continue by car to the "Mitad del Mundo". On an interactive guided tour the "Intinan" people will tell you about the history and customs of the tribes in the area and with some help of a few interesting and fun tests you will find out that this place is exactly the middle of the world. After this interesting visit we’ll return to Quito.
