CAYAMBE VOLCANO RIDE

Only 1,5 hour away from Quito in direction to Otavalo you will find beautiful Andean landscapes. In this area the people are still dressed in their traditional clothes. The beautiful hacienda is located on a hill with 360 degrees view over the city Cayambe, Mojanda, Catacachi, Imbabura and of course the Cayambe volcano. There are ex-endurance horses available (mostly Arabic) and Spanish horses. All of them are beautiful to see, well fed and are willing to take you on a ride to explore the Andes. From this hacienda it is also possible to do a mountainbike trip where you go up to the Cayambe refuge and from there you bike down. So if you are with a mixed group a couple can go biking and the others can go horseback riding. The rest of the day you are together (lunch, equator, transportation).
