While all of our learning adventures offer extraordinary value, our "Best Value" programs were rated by our participants themselves who thought their dollar went particularly far.
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. 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 hot-air balloon festival. Trace Native American life back hundreds of years and learn how puebloans have managed to hold onto their lands and traditions for centuries. And explore the lives and works of the many artists — Georgia O’Keefe among them — who have been influenced by Santa Fe’s Hispanic and Native American traditions. Enjoy an exceptional adventure that spotlights New Mexico, past and present.


• Fifty miles outside of Albuquerque, experience historic Acoma Pueblo — known as “Sky City” — where several families still occupy homes atop a 365-foot sandstone mesa.
• On an early morning excursion to Balloon Fiesta Park, view the Morning Glow and enjoy a visual feast at the beloved Flight of the Nations Mass Ascension.
• 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.
