ADVENTURE AT EVERY TURN
(AND WITH EVERY STAY)
Ventana Big Sur is a place for exploration both outside and within, whether it’s a hike through the breathtaking natural landscape just beyond your door or a creative journey that expands your perspective. Our complimentary Ventana Signature Activities, included with all stays, are designed to empower you on whichever path you choose.
These semi-private experiences offer ample distancing for safety—and ample enjoyment, too. Please reserve activities prior to your stay by contacting your Leisure Concierge. All offerings and schedules are subject to change. Participation numbers are limited.
Each morning, we offer a complimentary yoga class to help you greet the new day and awaken fully in mind, body, and spirit. All yoga classes, whether private or small group, will have additional spacing. Yoga mats are also available for in-suite practice.
There’s no better place than the forest for quieting the mind and finding balance. Join our instructor under a protective canopy of redwoods for a time of reflection and mindfulness.
Strengthen your spirit and reduce stress with this ancient Chinese practice, led by an expert instructor each morning in a scenic spot overlooking the Pacific.
The topography of Big Sur has fueled the dreams of seekers and nature lovers for hundreds of years. Learn how to capture it with your camera in this photography workshop and guided hike around Ventana's wilderness. You'll hike some of the most beautiful trails in California with Big Sur Hikes and Guides, and learn powerful image-making techniques to improve composition, light exposure and visual language—regardless of your skill level, camera or previous experience.
There is nothing like the night sky in Big Sur, where you feel as though you can touch the stars. Join us for a night hike in the beautiful Big Sur wilderness, the stars and moon shining brightly above. We will end the hike with mycelium extract cocktails and special snacks, including artisanal charcuterie and local cheese, trail mix and seasonal fruit.
Expand your creative boundaries by joining us at the Glass House Gallery for a class featuring a local artist. You'll learn new skills, find new inspiration and create a new piece of artwork to take home.
