Horseback Riding: Multi-Day Tours and Adventure Holiday’s

Experience the magic of Colombia by horseback and travel through the most beautiful and untouched parts of this incredible country with our strong, happy and well trained horses. Our routes will take you across the Colombian Andes, through breathtaking scenery, to luxury Haciendas well off the beaten path. We will ride through some of the worlds most spectacular landscapes, through jungles, across mountains, through forests and paramo plains.

All our tours can be tailored to meet your individual needs. We keep group numbers small (between 2 or 4 riders plus guides) to ensure you have the best time and we ride at your pace. Read on to find out more about our multiday tours.

2, 3 or 4 day Hacienda Tour through Colombia’s central coffee district.

The Hacienda tour will take you through the heart of Colombias iconic coffee growing landscape (Awarded UNESCO heritage status due to the beauty and cultural interest of these very special lands). Farming and life here continues as it did hundreds of years ago. Our route winds through jungles filled with a huge biodiversity of plants and animals (including howler monkeys!), through valleys with fresh mountain rivers and streams and into quaint Colombian towns well off the beaten path. At the end of each day we will stay overnight in beautiful haciendas surrounded by nature, whilst our horses relax on the grounds with good food and hay. Enjoy a swim in the pool or simply relax in a hammock with a well deserved cold beer, glass of wine or exotic fruit juice. The food served is hearty and will set you up for the following day of riding.

Andes Wilderness Tour.
This tour is an intense test of endurance as we will be riding into the remote Mountains of Los Nevados National park. If you are up for a challenge, are in good health with a good level of fitness, not afraid of β€˜roughing it’, (camping under the stars and living out in the open), then contact us for more information and get ready for a life changing adventure.

Here is a short video from one of our first trips into Los Nevados in 2017. As you can see from this rough and ready, homemade video, the footage was shot during the height of the wet season. Our tours will be held during the dry seasons once the fogs have lifted and the landscape provides us with spectacular views of the vast valleys during the day and the shooting stars in the skys at night. We will visit the home of the Andean Condors during this ride and see some of these spectacular birds, with their huge wingspan of up to 3.10m, soaring through the sky in their natural habitat.
