Destination Profile: For more than 10 years, Green Horse Ranch operates rides on lively and reliable horses through the very heart of the Ecuadorian Andes and their unbroken beauty. Our trips lead you through the very heart of the Ecuadorian Andes and their unbroken beauty. On our famous 9-day "Cloudforest-to-Highland-Trail" you'll enjoy breathtaking scenery composed by lush green cloud forests as well as desert-like landscapes, deep river canyons and steep mountain slopes, hot sunny valleys and cool windy heights, rolling corn-fields and volcanic avalanches blooming with wild orchids, indian markets and picturesque farming land, tropical wilderness and silent crater lakes. Robust and amiable mountain horses will carry you through the biggest volcanic crater on the whole American continent and one of only two inhabited craters in the world - with its constantly changing sceneries and huge bio-diversity. This is a programme for nature- and adventure-lovers, not afraid of experiencing the outdoors and true back-country life.
