Program #21428RJ
6 Days | 5 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.
Northern New Mexico has long been a draw for art and artists, beginning with the Native Americans that brought breathtaking creativity to their pottery and weaving, followed by an influx of Spanish art forms in the late 1500s and continuing with the great artists of the first half of the 20th century. In Santa Fe, Taos and other renowned artists' enclaves, visit numerous museums, galleries and architectural specimens that present this multicultural artistic heritage and demonstrate how contemporary Native American and Hispanic artists have taken traditional techniques in a whole new direction.


• In Santa Fe and on a day trip to Taos, explore galleries and artists' studios.
• Hear a Georgia O’Keeffe expert discuss O'Keeffe's life and work, then experience the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum and Abiquiu — the artist’s home for a period.
• Dine on regional cuisine daily and, on the final evening, enjoy wine and hors d’oeuvres at gallery openings.
