Full Moon Horse Riding Adventure

Nothing compares riding horseback along Andean trails under the light of a full moon. On this tour you’ll set out just after sunset on gentle and professionally trained horses for this horse riding adventure. You’ll have the chance to take part in a fire ceremony with wine and cheese before returning to Cuenca.


This very special night tour will take you half an hour’s drive from Cuenca to Hacienda Totorillas, a charming private farm built in a gorgeous valley in the mountains of Tarqui. You’ll depart at 4:00pm.
All horses used on these tours are gentle and professionally trained, which means that minimal experience is required. You’ll have the chance to take a ride along local trails through indigenous and private farms, primary forest and part of the ancient Inca Trail. The old trails from the colonial era follow the top of the mountain ridge, providing amazing views from the saddle, especially when enjoyed by the light of the moon.
You’ll have the chance to take part in a unique fire ceremony, accompanied by wine, cheese and traditional Andean foods such as tostado and habas. This is a very exclusive experience and places are limited to ensure an intimate experience, so book ahead to reserve your place. There is also the option to sleep over, for a maximum of 4 people, in a rural house on the property and enjoy our Totorillas Countryside Experience. If you’re interested please contact us to find out more.
