This stunning horseback trek is a welcome addition to the Tinggly portfolio, combining as it does stunning scenery, an elegant, romantic form of travel, and strong links to the history and culture of Ecuador. Horseback riding in this country dates back to 1534, when the Spanish conquistadors first arrived, and it is an excellent way of navigating the rocky, almost lunar landscape around the Chimborazo Highlands. With local, indigenous guides to show you the route, sit back on your trusty steed and enjoy some sumptuous panoramic vistas.
Other things to recommend this gorgeous Ecuador gift experience? You’ll be trekking around the country’s highest active volcano, Chimborazo, the summit of which is the farthest point on the surface from the centre of the Earth. You’ll pass through remote mountain villages, heading towards Salinas de Guaranda, a traditional pueblo famed for its cobblestones and colourful houses, as well as its cheese and chocolate. So bring some spending money, and a camera. Highly recommended.
