Outdoor Exploration

We recommend that all our guests use our complimentary itinerary building service by talking with our Front Desk team before they arrive. This allows us the opportunity to build everyone a personal and detailed vacation plan. Your personalized grand adventure will include the activities of your choice and the any other of our guest amenities you wish to schedule, such as a relaxing massage or yoga class.

Outdoor activities are included in the cost of your stay when self-guided or with a group on the ranch activity schedule. For an additional cost, we have private guides available to take you around to our many activity venues and scenic spots on the Ranch for a private tour. Our seasoned guides are well-versed in Vermejo’s land as well as its creatures, and will tailor your activities and explorations to your skill level, ability, and desire to optimize your stay and outdoor experience at the Ranch.
