Full description
Begin down in the mouth of the canyon along the edge of the river as you start to explore the landscape around you on horseback. Receive instructions on riding and an overview of your adventure. Have the opportunity to cross the river and gallop through traditional cattle ranches. Take a short rest on the top of dramatic cliffs, and admire the views as you snap some great pictures. Continue over the plains and amongst the cattle, reaching a further edge of the canyon and begin a 40-minute descent back down to find the winding river. Choose to add on either a hot springs or rappelling experience, for a touch of relaxation or some extra adrenaline. Opt for a soothing soak in some healing pools to reward yourself after your adventure. Select the rappelling experience to finish your adventure with a kick as you descend down 150 feet cliffs.  For the grand finale, when you get back to the ranch, you will have an organic ranch-style meal, freshly prepared for your arrival. This authentic meal includes freshly hand-made tortillas, organic cheese, beans, quesadillas among other traditional dishes.

The most amazing experience. Everyone was very friendly and made us feel extremely safe. June spent time explaining tips for riding (we are beginners and felt comfortable). The cowboys made you feel safe throughout the ride. The horses were very calm-mannered. If you’re considering adding an experience, we recommend adding the rappelling! The lunch at the end of the ride was absolutely delicious. We would recommend this experience to anyone and would book again next time we visit!

We had an excellent time on this adventure. Our group of 7 was led by Monique and a group of cowboys. All were very good at their jobs and kept us informed and safe. The trail up and down the canyon was fantastic and the horses knew what they were doing. The lunch at Javier’s Mom’s was excellent as well. Highly recommend this to any group seeking a peaceful, well planned, led and overall adventure. Great job Coyote Canyon!
