Your horseback adventure begins with pick-up from your central Medellín hotel. Soak up the scenery on the 40-minute drive, passing through the Aburrá Valley, and stopping along the way to admire the views over the Medellín River and the northern Andes mountains.

On arrival at the horse ranch in Llanogrande, you’ll be greeted with a welcome drink, as your instructor matches you up with a suitable horse. After mounting up and learning the basics of stopping and steering your horse, it’s time to head out on the trails.

Follow your guide through the dramatic foothills of the Andes, passing along remote backcountry trails, crossing rivers and streams, and clambering up rocky tracks. Keep a look out for native wildlife as you ride through the lush forests, and perhaps spot monkeys, macaws, yellow parrots and hummingbirds.

Along the way, jump off to stretch your legs and enjoy refreshments (available to purchase) as you admire the dramatic landscapes, and snap photos of the rolling hills and gorges along the mighty Negro River.

After a leisurely half-day ride, return to the ranch, where your driver will be waiting to take you back to your hotel.

Excellent time with this horseback tour. I do wish that the ride was on trails rather than the road. The driver/tour guide was excellent and very friendly. I really enjoyed my time with him, very knowledgeable about Medellin. I learned a lot from him. Highly recommend him.
Schlechtestes Erlebnis
, Feb 2020
Guide war unmotiviert. Ranch war in keinen schönen Zustand und Führung bzw Erklärung über die el paso Pferde gab es auch nicht. Ausritt hat genau 1 stunde 20 Minuten gedauert. Galopp war nicht erlaubt obwohl wir erfahrene Reiter waren, Zeit wurde im Schritt Tempo rausgezögert. Erlebnis hätte 4 Stunden dauern sollen,abgeholt wirden wir 1 Stunde zu spät und dafür pünktlich retour gebracht. Für dieses Geld war es eine Katastrophe.
