Day 1 Horseback Riding Rumiñahui Volcano
Departure from Quito to Hacienda El Porvenir, where we will be greeted by a warming canelazo (cinnamon-flavoured aguardiente) and some empanadas. After that, our guides will give us a brief riding lesson before we start out on our horses. Wearing the typical dress of the chagra (Ecuadorian cowboys), we ride out across the slopes of the extinct volcano, Rumiñahui. A legendary chagra from the area will come with us and share some of his deep knowledge of the country life. Back in the farm house, a tasty local lunch will be ready on our arrival. In the afternoon we walk to Manto Blanco waterfall and get a close-up look at traditional life on a working farm. Dinner and overnight stay at Hacienda El Porvenir.
Day 2 Cañón del Salto Canopy tour®
After a wholesome country breakfast at El Porvenir, we drive on to the Private Ecological Reserve of Hacienda Santa Rita (30 min. – 18 km.), where we will stop at the Park Visitors Centre and get ready for our spectacular ziplining adventure (Cañon del Salto Canopy tour®). This consists of 5 ziplines ranging from 180 to 480m. long, crossing the canyon of El Salto River. This is a high adventure activity with low environmental impact, letting people with little or no knowledge of climbing techniques have a unique, unbeatable experience. Depending on the size of the group, the 5-zipline tour takes 2 to 3 hours. In the afternoon we have a well-prepared rustic lunch and then visit Cóndor Machai waterfall with its 90m. drop. Return to Quito.
