With Hacienda del Chalan, you can enjoy a short ride to enjoy the scenery and polish your skills, or sign up for a multi-day trip to get the most out of your visit and explore a range of Andean trails. Conducted on Peruvian Paso horses, light animals that provide a smooth ride, you'll see lakes, snow-capped mountains, archaeological sites, and nature reserves--you'll also have a chance to interact with the local population and learn about their daily life. If horseback riding doesn't fit into your schedule, consider joining a guided hike to a noted Inca site. A visit to Hacienda del Chalan represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Urubamba trip planning app to plot your vacation.

A friend of mine and I decided to do one of their four hour trail rides. The Peruvian Paso horses appeared to be well-cared for and were quite comfortable. Unfortunately, my horse seemed to get sore a... more »
If you're a horse rider I wholeheartedly recommend making the time to ride a trail with these guys. I did the 1 day Salt Pans and Moray complex trail and it was amazing to experience those sites via horseback rather than a coach tour or hike. (Tip from my mistake! If you've got a ticket that let's you see multiple sites in Cusco/Sacred Valley, take it with you so you can go into Moray and see the site in full.) If you're not experienced, give it a try anyway! They have shorter rides you can do, and they make the difficulty clear on their website. The horses are wonderful and well trained, and the experience of the Sacred Valley from horseback is one I'll never forget. Many thanks to Kate and Amelia for making the day great fun, and the welcoming hospitality of everyone at the ranch. Next time I'm in Peru I'll definitely be doing a multi day ride here!
Had a great 2 days horse back riding tour with Yohan last week. Beautiful horses and excellent service
