Program #11299RJ
7 Days | 6 Nights
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.
Explore the wonders of the opera world as you experience this season's productions of the Santa Fe Opera and enjoy the exciting combination of music, theater, writing, art and dance. Program lectures will inform you about the composer, music, singers and the story of each work you experience.


• Attend an array of staged productions starring some of the finest singers from the U.S. and abroad in the spectacular open-air amphitheater.
• Enjoy a Santa Fe city field trip and go backstage at the opera complex.
• Expert-led field trips include Canyon Road and the Santa Fe Botanical Garden.
