We booked a one day horse riding trip with a visit to Moray and Saltineras very last minute and were pleasantly surprised with the quick response by the owner (booked at 8pm for the next day 8am start)
We were picked up from our hotel on time and traveled about an hour to a small town Maras where the ranch Was. Here we were introduced to our horses. It was my second time horse riding in life so I was a bit nervous. But I shouldn't have as the horses were so calm and responsive as well as very well looked after.
We rode past some breathtaking scenery and it is one of my favourite memories of the whole 3week Peru trip. When we arrived at Moray I was watching people getting of the tour buses all hot and sweaty and could not help but feel smug about the way we got there.
Albizu is not only a great horseman but a personal guide too. He told us about the sites we visited as well as the flora&fauna along the way as we rode.
Half way through the trip we've stopped for a picnic next to an old colonial ranch house. The food was yummy and conversation was engaging. Albizu Is interesting and interested - he was interested to learn more about the countries we came from and told us a lot of things about Peru helping us to understand Peruvian history & culture a bit more.
At the end of the trip we rode back into the Maras town, the whole ambience & surroundings were very Indiana Jones :))
The last visit was Saltineras (we went there by car rather than a horse) - an ingenious Incan salt mine engineering design.
All in all - a very memorable day, truly recommended and worth every dollar.
