ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding, and rewarding, programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
Native American culture goes back two millennia in the Southwest, during a time when an ancient people called the Anasazi laid the cultural foundations for today's modern Pueblo tribes. Explore the ceremonial center of this culture at Chaco Culture National Historic Park and trace its history from ancient times to the arrival of the Spanish and into modern times at both Acoma and Zuni Pueblos.


• Explore the ceremonial hub of the Anasazi world on expert-led tour of Pueblo Bonito — the largest building in North America for 800 years — Chetro Ketl and numerous 1,000-year-old petroglyphs.
• Hear the echoes of the past on a visit to the Zuni reservation accompanied by a Zuni representative.
• At Acoma Pueblo, atop a 367-foot mesa, discover a culture continuously inhabited since A.D. 1150.
