Rose Plantation

Rose Plantation & Haunted Colonial Hacienda

We will meet you at your hotel around 9 AM from where we will start drving south to visit one of the many rose plantations around Quito. Ecuador is famous for its roses, although there is not a long history of growing roses for exportation, Ecuador has reached a very high standard. At the moment, roses are the third main export product of Ecuador, just following oil and bananas.


Roses from Ecuador are known to have long stems and to stay fresh for weeks. Recently a new system has been introduced in creating multi-color roses. You will find here standard roses but also many where each leaf of the flower has a different color! Rainbow Roses!
The plantation we visit today works based on ecological and sustainable principles, ensuring that the final product (the rose) is one of the best you will be able to find in the world! During your visit you will receive a tour of the plantation with explanations about the whole process of growing roses at a high altitude.


After the plantation we will continue on for a short drive to one of the oldest haciendas of Ecuador, La Cienega (in operation since 1665!) which has various legends about being haunted. Here you will be able to enjoy a lunch in the garden or at the fireplace before heading back to Quito.
