  • Day 2

    Truth or Consequences

    Sierra Grande Lodge boasts an exceptionally unique assemblage of outdoor activities and guided ecoconscious
    adventure tours. Prefer to do your own thing? Take a scenic drive to nearby ghost towns like Cuchillo, Chloride, or artsy enclave, Hillsboro. Duck into Hillsboro’s Black Range Vineyard’s tasting room for a splash of New Mexico’s wine history (which precedes that of California). If beer’s more your thing, head to Truth or Consequences Brewing Co for a craft brew. Or zip into Hatch, the Chile Capital of the World for a taste of Sparky’s infamous green chile cheeseburger.​

  • Day 4

    Santa Fe

    No trip to New Mexico is complete without a visit to Santa Fe, a magical, exuberant, colourful city for all seasons.
    It’s famed for its spirited creativity, and seemingly endless assortment of amazing eateries, art and cultural hot-spots,
    ancient Indian ruins, traditional pueblos, and natural wonders, but be sure to visit the Historic District’s original, adobe houses, some considered the country’s firsts. And if you’re not too tired come nightfall, head to the Galisteo Basin Preserve to view the dazzling starstudded night skies.​

    historic architecture and art heritage is Taos Pueblo – an adobe UNESCO World Heritage Site dating back 1000 years.

  • Days 6-8

    Great Sand Dunes National Park & Preserve

    This sandbox of epic proportions encompasses 30 square miles; its tallest dune towers at 750 feet high. Because the dunes and surrounding mountains are designated wilderness, it’s great for enjoying unspoiled natural beauty in many ways. Splash around in the mysteriously appearing and disappearing Medano Creek, sled down the dunes, go bird-watching in wetlands, or ascend a 13,000-foot peak. It’s a hot-spot for dark-sky-loving stargazers too, with astronomy
    programmes available May to September.​

  • Day 9

    Great Sand Dunes National Park to Colorado Springs

    Journey Time: 3 hours, 5 minutes

    Once a rough-and-tumble mining town inhabited by infamous ruffians like Wild Bill Hickok and Buffalo Bill Cody, this
    sunny playground on the banks of the Arkansas River is fast-becoming one of Colorado’s favourite foodie destinations;
    with a Creative Corridor that’s packed with galleries, museums, fountains, live music and other arts festivities.
