Additionally, groups can embark on a five-hour trek with colleagues into the spiritual realm of northern New Mexico’s landscape, beginning with a traditional Native American smudging ceremony in the Resort’s on-site teepee, followed by a trip across ancestral Pueblo lands with a local guide, yoga in the pumice hoodoos around Abiquiu and a light hike to the lake for a picnic lunch.

For Automotive Aficionados: For planners seeking to host an exceptional automotive event, the Resort’s expansive indoor and outdoor venues along with valet parking capabilities allow guests the opportunity to bask in the spectacular scenery and stunning New Mexico drive routes.  Additionally, car enthusiasts can rent one of the Resort’s proprietary Mercedes-Benz vehicles to explore the open highways while taking in the awe-inspiring mountain landscape.
