Early in the morning, transportation will pick you up from your Quito hotel. The journey will take you towards Hacienda El Porvenir (3600 m./11808 ft.). Upon arrival, a welcome drink option will greet you, which can be alcoholic or non-alcoholic, and will be served alongside cheese empanadas. Following a brief riding lesson, the trip will proceed towards the slopes of the dormant Rumiñahui volcano, taking exclusive paths within the hacienda. While journeying through the beautiful Andean scenery, you'll get the opportunity to observe herds of wild bulls, various bird species, and breathtaking vistas. The route will eventually take you close to the rocky summits of Rumiñahui, offering clear-day views of up to 12 additional volcanoes. En route, a stop will be made at Chusigmachai, known as the Owl Refuge, before riding back to the farmhouse. The total riding time will be approximately 5 hours, and a box lunch will be provided during the trip. Upon reaching Hacienda El Porvenir, access to the Apu Mountain SPA's wet area will be available at no additional cost (please note that massages are not included). The journey will conclude with a return to Quito.

This was my first experience with Adventure Life - and I couldn't have been more pleased with the trip. The guides and local staff in both Buenos Aires and Uruguay were terrific - extremely helpful and accommodating. I really enjoyed meeting the friendly staff in Buenos Aires in person (I left my bags with them for the afternoon).
