Horseback Riding $50

Our horseback riding tour is the best option to experience the atmosphere of the Andes and sightseen the surrounding volcanoes. Our horses are well-trained and ideal for rookies and expert riders.

The tour begins with an instruction in a safe enclosure with the help of an experienced guide. This allows riders to gain confidence with the horses. The trail begins from Hosteria PapaGayo Cotopaxi and heads towards the many volcanoes in the area such as Corazon Mountain and the Illinizas Volcanoes. From the trail, you have great sightseeing of the famous Cotopaxi and Rumiñahui Volcanoes. You can choose from a 2, 4 or 6 hours tour.
