Road Scholar
Program #15464RJ
7 Days | 6 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderate
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
Turn your eyes skyward to New Mexico’s multi-colored tapestry of hot-air balloons at the region’s world-renowned Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta. Trace Native American life back hundreds of years and learn how Puebloans have managed to retain their lands and traditions for centuries. Explore the lives and works of some of the artists — Georgia O’Keefe among them — who have been influenced by the area's beauty and Santa Fe’s Hispanic and Native American traditions. Enjoy an exceptional adventure that spotlights New Mexico, past and present.



Highlights

• Sixty miles outside of Albuquerque, experience historic Acoma Pueblo — known as “Sky City” — where several families still occupy homes atop a 367-foot sandstone mesa.
• On early morning excursions to Balloon Fiesta Park, view the magnificent Morning Glow and Evening Glows, and enjoy a visual feast at the beloved Flight of the Nations Mass Ascension and Special Shape Rodeo.
• Explore a wealth of art on a day trip to Santa Fe, including that at the George O’Keefe Museum to see the largest collection in the world produced by the iconic American modernist.

Activity Notes

Walking up to one mile over varied terrain. Elevations of 5,000 to 7,000 feet.
