Bundle up and enjoy a weekend of ski, wine, food, and great events.
Three miles north of Taos Plaza at the base of the beautiful Sangre de Cristo Mountains is the Taos Pueblo. The multi-story adobe pueblo has been continuously inhabited for more than 1,000 years and is the only living Native community to be designated both a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a National Historic Landmark.
A history of relaxation and revitalization resides in the waters of Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs Resort and Spa. For centuries, the hot springs in Ojo Caliente have been soothing people with their supposed healing powers. Soak in private pools, indulge in Native-inspired spa treatments, and after you’ve loosened up, hike or bike through acres of National Forest and public land.
Earthships are a type of house built with natural and recycled materials with energy conservation in mind, designed to produce water, electricity, and food for its own use.

Looking for a one-of-a-kind home-base for your Northern New Mexico vacation? There are even earthships available for rent.
Cattle rustlers, dinosaur discoveries, dude ranch for the affluent, home to Georgia O’Keeffe—the history of Ghost Ranch is as colorful and dramatic as its landscape of red and yellow cliffs. Within the 21,000 acres of towering rock walls, vivid colors, and vast skies, guests can enjoy a variety of activities including workshops, hiking, horseback riding, ropes courses, and kayaking on Abiquiu Lake.
