Overview

Take a horseback ride on the Pululahua Crater during this 8-hour tour from Quito. Following a guide, you'll cross the ancient caldera, leftover from Pululahua's eruption 2,500 years ago, to explore its fertile green landscape. Equipment and lunch are provided.
  • 8-hour Pululahua Crater tour from Quito
  • Discover the crater environment on a 4-hour horseback ride
  • Admire its verdant landscapes as you circle the lava cone
  • Lunch included
Your tour starts in the morning at a central meeting point in Quito for the transfer to the horse ranch. 
When you arrive, you'll be paired with an Andean horse for your ride through the Pululahua Crater, one of the biggest on the continent and one of the only inhabited craters in the world. Its lava dome rises 1,640 feet (500 meters) above the crater floor and is covered in lush, cloud-forest vegetation. During the ride, learn about the biodiversity of the caldera and its ever-changing environment. Circle the central lava cone, and see remnants of volcanic eruptions, geological formations, mineral avalanches with blooming wildflowers, and local agriculture. 
The length of your ride is about four hours, after which you can enjoy lunch with views over the valley and mountains. Your tour then ends with the drive back to Quito for drop-off at your meeting point.

Great don't miss it. I have already posted my review on Tripadvisor. It's expensive if you travel solo, however it's worth the price.
