Family Trips

Ventana offers customized backpacking / camping trip to families - either individually or with one other family. These trips are designed to encourage quality family time outdoors. These trips are highly customizable depending on the expectations and desires of the family(ies) and can range from basic guiding services to more programmatic experiences aimed at self awareness and confidence in a wilderness setting.

Adult Trips

Our adult trips are similar in scope with the family trips, although are focused on those who are looking to unplug from stressful work environments and recharge themselves in a natural setting - but perhaps may not know how to go about doing it. These trips are highly customizable and are intended to serve a group of friends that have pre existing relationships – either through their profession or otherwise socially.
