Day 1: Santa Fe

Welcome to Santa Fe, the oldest state capital in the USA. If you arrive early, feel free to spend the day exploring the city’s iconic Pueblo-style architecture and abundance of art galleries – there are more than 250 for you to find! Your tour kicks off with a group meeting at 6pm, followed by a welcome dinner in which you’ll get to sample some of Santa Fe’s delicious (and often chili-infused) local cuisine. After dinner, the evening is all yours to explore. Maybe wander the plaza or head to the Bell Tower Bar at the historic La Fonda hotel for a cocktail.

Day 2: Santa Fe

This morning, take in the historic sites of Santa Fe with a walking tour led by your expert guide. See the historic Palace of the Governors, St. Francis Cathedral and the local Native American art markets – and maybe pick up a few unique souvenirs to bring back home. In the afternoon, you’re free to explore at your leisure. We highly recommend the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum, celebrating one of the country’s most significant artists of the 20th century. If visual art is your passion, check out fellow B-Corp business Meow Wolf, which creates fantastical, immersive experiences.

Day 3: Santa Fe

Today is a free day to further explore Santa Fe. Maybe check out the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum or Loretto Chapel. In the afternoon meet back up with your group and leader for a cocktail making class at a local distillery that focuses on their mission to become the Southwest’s pre-eminent artisan distillery. Afterwards you’ll have the option for a group dinner (at your expense)

Day 4: Bandelier National Monument

Get ready because we have a full day planned for you today! After breakfast, head out of town to Bandelier National Monument. You will discover some of the most unusual ancient ruins in the Southwest, including petroglyphs, pictographs and cave dwellings tucked away in the cliffside. If you’re feeling brave, climb the ladders to these alcoves, high above the canyon floor. From here, continue north to the historic town of Taos, where you’ll spend the next 2 nights.

Day 5: Taos

Your morning is free to explore Taos at your own pace. Cruise riverside in the Rio Grande del Norte National Monument through wine and apple country. Make a pit stop at the quirky Classical Gas Museum before visiting the historic town of Chimayo to learn traditional rug weaving and make your own pilgrimage for holy dirt at the El Sanctuario de Chimayo. Re-group after lunch and head to Chimayo for a rug-weaving demonstration and a visit to a tapestry gallery that specialises in handwoven wool products using natural dyes and traditional weaving styles. The gallery is owned by award-winning weavers whose work has been shown in museums around the world, including the Smithsonian.

Day 6: Taos – Santa Fe

Today you will travel back to Santa Fe, making a stop along the way at the 21,000-acre Ghost Ranch. Here you’ll have the chance to stretch your legs with a self-guided walk through the inspiring landscape. Georgia O’Keefe’s summer home and studio were located in Ghost Ranch, so you may recognise some of the scenes from her paintings. Famed not only for its contributions to the artistic world, the ranch is also home to thousands of well-preserved fossils, including skeletons of a small Triassic dinosaur. You can expect to arrive back in Santa Fe around 5 pm, at which point your New Mexico Discovery comes to an end.
