Tour Information


Overview
  • Prepare for a fantastic horseback riding tour on the magnificent Pululahua Crater. Pululahua is an ancient volcano that on its last eruption (around 2500 years ago) left a beautiful and enormous caldera with vast fertile soil. The huge crater has 34 square kilometers of extension and has ample green flat lands. The lava dome rises 500 meters above the crater floor and is covered in lush cloud-forest vegetation. This ancient volcanic crater is one of the largest in the world, and the biggest inhabited one in South America.

Pululahua Crater Horseback-Riding Tour

Itinerary

This day tour takes you to the magnificent Pululahua crater. In the morning we start driving to the ranch where the horses are waiting. From the ranch, robust and amiable mountain horses will take us through the stunning landscape of this ancient volcanic crater – the biggest one on the whole American continent and one of only two inhabited craters in the world – with its constantly changing sceneries and huge biodiversity. While circling the central lava cone, we witness volcanic history and nature, interesting geological formations, mineral avalanches blooming with wild orchids and traditional Andean agriculture. Lunch with panoramic view over valleys and cloud forest covered mountains.

Great don't miss it. I have already posted my review on Tripadvisor. It's expensive if you travel solo, however it's worth the price.
