This special ride takes you to the moon lightened Pululahua crater, which will allow you to deeply capture the magical spirit of this unique geographical area. Visit a living volcano at sun-set, follow the echo of a donkey’s call rolling along the crater walls before all animals go to sleep and only night-frogs sing their song.
As our path slowly winds into darkness and dense mists, fire-flies start lightening the sky, like stardust falling down on us. With your senses sharpened by dark, this ride will be a totally different experience and shall build up deep trust between you and your horse.
We’ll be leaving Quito at 4 pm in order to get on our horses at dusk and start riding into slowly falling darkness. Eventually, only moonlight will be guiding our way.
A cozy dinner is awaiting you at the end of the ride.
