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 sunset, 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 songs.

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 candlelight dinner with wine is awaiting you at the end of the ride. Accommodation, breakfast and return trip the following morning.

If you want to keep on riding the next day, you can of course extend your trip with us. Let us know.
