Adventure and Recreational Activities
Golf Excursions & Tournaments
Golf is available at courses designed by Robert Trent Jones and Baxter Spann, and at the new courses on Pueblo lands. Whether your guests play straight golf, or we arrange a tournament, all our courses offer enough challenges to make any level of player happy, and enough scenery to make them experience awe!
You will experience an afternoon of the excitement of world-class skiing in the breathtaking beauty of the Rocky Mountains at Ski Santa Fe. Located minutes from the historic city, Ski Santa Fe welcomes skiers to our well-groomed, 12,175 foot mountain.
White Water Rafting
One of America's most popular adventures, white water rafting, is becoming a tradition for visitors to Northern New Mexico. All levels of rafters, from the novice to the expert, will find the combination of excitement and spectacular scenery an unforgettable adventure.
For the avid 'fat tire' or mountain bike rider, take ride along "Old Volcanoes Trail" in the foothills of the Ortiz Mountains. The journey will travel the old mining and railroad routes. Stretching through the high desert scenery, your ride will be an exploration of the 1880s and how the railroad shaped the West. The trails will stretch the limits of some, and will tease the limits of others, but since your experience level will be matched to the trails, this promises to be an exciting adventure for all.
Hot Air Ballooning
You'll never forget your balloon flight over the Rio Grande River Valley with the Sandia Mountains as the backdrop and the beauty of Albuquerque and Central New Mexico spreading to the horizons. Or experience Mass Ascension in October when the New Mexico skies above Albuquerque are painted in a rainbow of colors as hundreds of balloons lift off from the Balloon Fiesta Park.
For the gun-sports enthusiast, enjoy a day of shooting. If you are in the mood for trap, skeet or the very popular sporting clays, we can design a morning, afternoon, or full day experience. For hunting enthusiasts, we offer planted bird shoots for either quail or chukar, or can set up multi-day trips for deer, elk and antelope.
Our experienced fishing guides take care of all the details and make this fishing adventure worry free. Your guests will try their luck casting for cutthroats, rainbows and browns in nearby lakes, streams and rivers. We usually have a hard time getting the guests to return from this glorious excursion!
What could be more Western than a horseback ride through the piñon and juniper studded foothills and high-desert ranch lands of Northern New Mexico? Rides offer spectacular 360 degree views of all the area mountain ranges, and miles and miles of wide open blue sky. Your wrangler will select and saddle the horse that best fits your level of experience and matches your temperament, making your ride all the more personal and unique.
Enjoy a hike at the Tsankawi Ruins or Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument. You will be truly amazed by the beauty and splendor that surrounds you in these pristine locations, and come to fully understand why New Mexico is called the 'Land of Enchantment'.
Explore New Mexico's pristine wilderness on a half-day guided nature hike complete with companion llamas, gourmet lunch and guides to educate you about the Northern New Mexico's flora and fauna. This is a unique experience and puts a special twist on hiking through Sangre de Cristo Mountains east of Santa Fe.
New Mexico Safari
With the greatest variety of scenery and life zones anywhere in the country, guests can enjoy an on- and off-road journey through the varied geological make-up of New Mexico. Trips can be developed into team building experiences, photo safaris with award winning photographers, or a scavenger hunt can be designed specifically for your group.
Several tennis and racquet clubs make their facilities available to out-of-town guests for outdoor and indoor tennis, and we can arrange courts for singles, doubles, and tournaments.
Private Planes and Helicopter Rides
Ever dreamed of flying over the Grand Canyon in a private plane? Maybe chartering a plane to Mesa Verde for a day trip exploring the ruins or a helicopter ride above the Rockies is your wish. Whether you are interested in sight seeing, or chartering a private plane home, we can organize tours and charters for you.
