Luxury Hotels for the Outdoorsy Vacationer


If you’re a lover of the outdoors, sometimes it can be difficult to find hotels that integrate both rustic and luxury elements. For those who want to feel the wind in their hair, picnic in tall grasses, or hop on a thoroughbred horse for a sunny trail ride, we have the perfect luxury hotels for you.

The St. Regis Aspen Resort is a hotel built to integrate the outdoors by incorporating tons of activities suited both for families and romantic getaways. Break out your fishing rod for an afternoon of fly-fishing in the Roaring Fork Valley or set out on a whitewater rafting adventure with the help of St. Regis experts. This hotel offers rock climbing, paragliding, clay target shooting, horseback riding, and opportunities for hot air ballooning (to name just a few).

The Alisal Guest Ranch & Resort of Solvang, CA offers an equally wide range of outdoor activities that will leave visitors sleeping more soundly than ever before by the time they return to their luxury suites. Spend a day golfing on the Ranch Course or River Course or relax on a boat in the middle of Alisal Lake. Horse lovers rejoice; Alisal holds two group rides daily and offers private rides as well.

Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe Resort & Spa offers fresh water fishing charter opportunities on a lake that’s home to rainbow trout, mountain trout, mountain whitefish, and others. In warmer weather, rent a catamaran or lounge on the water trampoline. The resort also offers panoramic views of Lake Tahoe on its Flume Trail, a hike worth taking. In winter, hit the slopes or bundle up for a romantic sleigh ride.
