Inn Highlights: Just a few blocks from Santa Fe's historic plaza, pamper yourself with a massage and enjoy your room's handmade furniture and local artwork at the Inn on the Alameda. Casa Escondida, our bed & breakfast in Chimayo, was built in the "Spanish colonial adobe style" of northern New Mexico. Kiva fireplaces, wooden tongue & groove ceilings, saltillo tile floors and wooden vigas all add to its warmth and rustic charm. The Fechin Inn, featuring adobe walls, open courtyards, and fine hand-carved doors, is located just two blocks from the historic Taos Plaza, on six acres next to Kit Carson Park.
Days 1-2: Santa Fe - Bandelier
Start the day with a hike through the unusual volcanic deposits at Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument before sampling regional cuisine at an acclaimed southwestern restaurant in Santa Fe. Then starting in the designated wilderness area of Burnt Mesa, we drop into Frijoles Canyon to end our hike at the heart of an ancient Anasazi civilization in Bandelier National Monument. (B/L/D).
Days 3-4: Taos - Rio Grande
Accompanied by our guest naturalist, we cycle into Carson National Forest. Fascinating stories of the area's past are sure to spark your imagination. Then choose between a half-day of rafting on a class III section of the Rio Grande or a full day on the renowned Taos Box. Or you can simply relax and explore Taos' galleries and the ancient Taos Pueblo. (B/L/D).
Days 5-6: Wild Rivers Scenic Area - Sangre de Cristo Mountains - Santa Fe
A nearly pedal-free descent through Carson National Forest carries us to the brink of the 600-foot-deep Rio Grande gorge. An alpine hike near 13,161' Mt. Wheeler, New Mexico's highest, provides a stunning finale to our southwestern adventure before returning to enchanting Santa Fe. (B/L/D).
