Outdoor adventurers, families and anyone craving serious R&R will be charmed by rugged Ruidoso, a welcoming village in the Sierra Blanca mountains. Stay in one of these great hotels – bookable with Culture Trip – and your trip won’t cost the earth, either.

Once known as Rio Ruidoso – which means Noisy River – the region is renowned for its hiking, fishing, skiing, mountain biking and thriving local art scene. Thrill seekers will also love the Wind Rider ZipTour, one of the longest zip lines in the world.
