Description

This day tour combines a visit to the educational museum built on the equator, Mitad del Mundo, with a beautiful horseback ride through the Pululahua Crater.  In the morning, drive 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, witness volcanic history and nature, interesting geological formations, mineral avalanches blooming with wild orchids and traditional Andean agriculture.  The horseback riding time will be about 3 hours. Lunch with panoramic view over valleys and cloud forest covered mountains (lunch if option is selected). Afterwards, continue by car to the Mitad del Mundo. On an interactive guided tour they will tell you about the history of the tribes in that area and with some help of a few scientific tests you will find out that this place is exactly the middle of the world. Return to Quito at the end of the tour.
